ARCTIC SEA ICE ---2017 MAXIMUM---(Updated)

Barring any last minute peaks, it looks like the sea-ice has reached its yearly maximum.

This maximum is about the same as last year, but, because it is among the lowest in the satellite record, I suppose those still involved in the battles with Alarmists should step back and allow the Alarmists a period of rejoicing. 3,724 more words

Arctic Inversions and Intrusions

An earlier post Arctic Ice Factors discussed how ice extent varies in the Arctic primarily due to the three Ws: Water, Wind and Weather. There are other posts on the details of Water and Wind linked below at the end, but this post looks at some ordinary and repeating Weather events in the Arctic that influence ice formation. 2,188 more words

Arctic Sea Ice

Arctic sea ice peaks in the winter. For the third year in a row, it’s at a record low.

Constant warmth punctuated by repeated winter heatwaves stymied Arctic sea ice growth this winter, leaving the winter sea ice cover missing an area the size of California and Texas combined, and setting a record-low maximum for the third year in a row. 810 more words
