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.
