  1. Here’s the Regions to watch:

    Central Arctic still has 99% of its ice
    East Siberian Sea 95%
    Kara Sea 93%
    Beaufort Sea 89%
    Canadian Archipelago 89%

    Why these regions?

    The Northwest Passage (NWP) goes through Baffin Bay, Canadian Archipelago, Beaufort Sea, Chukchi Sea and the Bering Sea.
    The Northern Sea Route (NSR) used by Russia goes through Barents Sea, Kara Sea, Laptev Sea, Eastern Siberian Sea, to Chukchi Sea, Bering Sea.

    “During early September 2013 the Russian battlecruiser Petr Velikiy led a flotilla of Russian navy ships through the Russian portion of the Northern Sea Route in preparation for establishing regular patrols. About 400 ships are expected to transit the Russian portion of the route during the 2013 season, up from about 40 during 2012.”

    In actual fact, with the unexpected ice recovery., only 71 ships crossed the Northern Sea Route in 2013. The NWP did not open at all because of the iced Archipelago.
