Update: I’ve added the 10 years with the lowest amount of Antarctic Sea Ice on day 259 at the bottom.

Antarctic Sea Ice is at it’s 5th highest amount ever on day 259. Using the data from Cryosphere I have graphed the record breaking Antarctic Sea Ice data. It is the most Antarctic Sea Ice ever for day 259, but it soon may break the all time satellite record that occurred in 2007. Highlighted are 2012, 2007 and the median for 1979-2008.
