Antarctic Sea Ice Extent July 31 2014 – 1,110,000 sq km Above Normal – 133rd Daily Record

Antarctic Sea Ice Extent is 1,110,000 sq km above the 1981-2010 mean. That is the 133rd daily record for the year.

An interesting note: Both 2013 (black line) and 2012 (orange line) set all time maximum records … yet were 900,000 sq km apart at this day.

Sea Ice Data is late today – July 29 2014

Update: Arctic/Antarctic have appeared. MASIE is still one day old.

Normally the NSIDC Sea Ice Data is posted on their site at 6:51am Pacific Time.

Some days it is late or isn’t updated until the next day.

The MASIE data gets updated about 7:17am Pacific. It was updated … but it the previous days data.

MASIE Arctic July 28 2014 – Freezing and More Ice

July 28 2014  MASIE Update

The top graph just shows the Central Arctic … and shows 4 days in a row of freezing. The Central Arctic has 3.2 million sq km out of 7.8 million sq km left for the whole Northern Hemisphere.

The 2nd graph shows 2 days of freezing for the whole Northern Hemisphere … about 30,000 sq km net total freezing. (When I use the term freezing I mean more ice. It could be wind moving the ice around too)

The graphs have different scales.
