Arctic/Antarctic Mirror Graph Day 260

Filed under: Uncategorized — sunshinehours1 @ 8:36 AM

For those who say Antarctic Sea Ice Extent increases are small and have nothing in common with Arctic losses:

Mirror Sea Ice Extent for Day 260 From 1978

Antarctic Sea Ice Extent Sept 18 2014 – 20 MILLION sq km

Antarctic Sea Ice Extent Sept 18 2014 – 1,500,000 sq km above the 1981-2010 mean. Data for Day 260. Data here.

500,000 sq km higher than 2013’s record.

Amazing.

Antarctic Sea Ice Area has now set a 3rd all-time record on 3 days. (difference between Area/Extent here)

The new record for area is 16.47964 million sq km which is 85,000 sq km higher than the previous days record and 240,000 sq km higher than the old 2007 record.

Antarctic Sea Ice Extent Sept 16 2014 – Holy Crap – Another All-Time Record – 4th In A Row

Antarctic Sea Ice Extent Sept 16 2014 – 1,273,000 sq km above the 1981-2010 mean. Data for Day 258. Data here.

4th All-Time Record in a row. 240,000 sq km higher than 2013’s record.

Holy Crap … there is a chance of hitting 20,000,000 sq km.

Antarctic Sea Ice AREA Sets All-Time Record Too – Day 256

Antarctic Sea Ice Area is now an All-Time Record Too.

The new record for area is 16.39439 million sq km which is 162,000 sq km higher than the old 2007 record.

I usually graph Sea Ice Extent. Every once in a while I graph Sea Ice Area. (Like yesterday)

“A simplified way to think of extent versus area is to imagine a slice of swiss cheese. Extent would be a measure of the edges of the slice of cheese and all of the space inside it. Area would be the measure of where there is cheese only, not including the holes. That is why if you compare extent and area in the same time period, extent is always bigger.”
