I don't think you need a scale bar, unless distance is important in the map's story. Same goes for a legend unless there is some info the legend needs to convey.

I think this map needs a scale bar, because knowing distance of ice-covered ocean is important to the story of this map. Also, with the newly exposed water, political boundaries/names might make the map a stronger piece.

Otherwise, it's a handsome map.

I was referring to the 2025 and 2050 extent. Maybe they have been added to the NSIDC repository.

the 2025 and 2050 extents were projected and averaged using a trendline, which was created using the yearly area from the NSIDC data (shown in the chart at the bottom of the map)
