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.

DMI Update July 27 2014 – Shortest Summer Ever in the Arctic?

Filed under: Arctic Sea Ice — sunshinehours1 @ 10:17 AM
Tags: , ,

DMI says summer is almost over.  And by summer I mean the short period when average temperature is above 0C.

Red is the temperature for 2014. Green is the mean for all previous years. Blue is the 0C line.

It could be the shortest arctic summer ever.
