Arctic Sea Ice Extent Sep 22 2014 – -1,132,000 sq km below the 1981-2010 mean. Data for Day 264. Data here.

I’ll go out on a limb and say summer is over in the Arctic. Minimum occurred on Sept 16 at 4.98 million sq km and is now 167,000 sq km above that minimum.

It didn’t disappear. Many are disappointed.

Day 259 was the minimum. The latest minimum was day 265 in 1989 and 2005 and the earliest minimum was day 245 in  1987.

It is now over 100,000 higher than day 259. I’m pretty sure day 259 will be the 2014 minimum.

Looking even better for Day 259 to have been the minimum since it is now 80,000 lower than today (261).

A Rise of 27,000 sq km, Day 259 with 4.98339 million sq km is now the potential minimum (but I make no predictions since it has been a surprising year).
