Arctic Sea Ice Extent – Most Ice Since 2004

Arctic Sea Ice Extent for 2013 is only 130,000 sq km under the 11,367,000 mean for day 173. Thats 1.13%.

You have to go back to 2004 before it was closer to the mean.

    Same here a slight uptick which takes it way out of the previous trends. I would not be surprised if it stays within SD 79-90 for the whole year.. The jewel in the crown of AGW will be gone LOL

    However DMI main page is still frozen to 2 weeks ago

  3. Artic sea ice area is graphed here http://www.ijis.iarc.uaf.edu/en/home/seaice_extent_prev.htm
    and here http://arctic-roos.org/observations/satellite-data/sea-ice/ice-area-and-extent-in-arctic

    Note the difference between sea ice area and sea ice extent (which is also influenced by wind)

    Also of interest is http://endofgw.blogspot.com/
