How thick does the ice in the arctic need to be to make it through the summer?

    Up to 2001, Arctic summer ices were generally 2 meters (about 6 feet thick). Since 2001 though, the thickness of Arctic summer ices have halved and are now measuring in at just 1 meter thick. This is certainly problematic as it makes it much easier for the ice to melt, possibly leading to the disappearance of summer ice and rises in sea levels.
