|"Some data indicate that sea ice has consistently covered at least part of the Arctic Ocean
for the last 13–14 million years, and it has been most extensive during the most recent approximately 2 m.y. Other data argue against the development of perennial (year-round) sea ice
until the most recent few million years."
