"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."

Ice Shields:                     (Icing)

'Ice Shields and Climate Change' supplement. Asian Shields and Climate Change. Unlike glaciers and ice caps, naled ice shields do not need snow, and indeed grow better in arid regions such as the Central Asian Steppe and Gobi Desert. Naleds form in winter by a sheet of water flowing over ice and freezing. Repeated many times, an ice shield several metres thick can develop, often several hundred metres across and tens of kilometers long. Large numbers of ice shields persist long after the snow has vanished, into late spring and early summer, supplying streams continuously with melt-water even in dry periods, irrigating pasture and crops and supplying people and wildlife with drinking water. The research indicates that ice shields, unlike snow, can resist warming sufficiently to serve as natural buffers against Climate Change, and maintain oases in regions dominated by desertification.
