Anyone brave enough to call the max? There's a lot of heat coming in from the Pacific...

Huh? What's all this sea ice stuff in my favourite "prepper" blog?

That we are even discussing the event is indicative on how much the situation has changed in the last 20 years.

Will there be any sudden large changes to extent if/when the leading edge of the ice pack in the Beaufort Sea melts back to the large holes further north?

Wow, they even hire people who are named after one of the Arctic regions. - Neven Ha! Clearly a case of nominative determinism. Kara had no choice but to be in role related to the Arctic. See https://www.newscientist.com/article/mg22530101-100-feedback-nominative-determinism-redux/

I see the PDO has gone positive and NOAA has called El Nino. http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn27098-mighty-el-nino-is-back--heres-what-you-need-to-know.html

Paywalled, but for those that can access it includes some interesting points about the differences between north and south ice masses - http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg22530060.400-thaw-point-why-is-antarcticas-sea-ice-still-growing.html I'm not sure I agree with the line that the Antarctic is a more complex system than the Arctic - they are different systems with different inputs, processes and outcomes. The challenge for Antarctic analyses is, as suggested, scarcer observations.

Is that fog or have we just lost NPEO webcam 2? http://psc.apl.washington.edu/northpole/

No recent open thread so thought this one was the next best as it was probably triggered by the recent stormy weather. Melt pond emptying captured during the past few days at the North Pole Environmental Observatory, National Science Foundation NPEO webcam #2. You have to drill into the archive at the foot of the page http://psc.apl.washington.edu/northpole/NPEO2013/webcams1and2.html to see it as the “latest images” on that particular page are not so latest. Between late evening 27th July and early morning 28th the pond level abruptly dropped. The ablation poles in the last image before the emptying are under water, and then in the next frame are totally exposed leading to a drop in excess of 80cm (I think I read somewhere these show 10cm gradations). http://psc.apl.washington.edu/northpole/NPEO2013/WEBCAM2/ARCHIVE/npeo_cam2_20130727192334.jpg http://psc.apl.washington.edu/northpole/NPEO2013/WEBCAM2/ARCHIVE/npeo_cam2_20130728011308.jpg Would this type of event result in (1) an increase in sea ice area measurement due to the pond no longer being “seen” as water, and (2) a decrease, increase or no change in measured ice thickness?

Anyone prepared to call the max SIA yet...?

I note that a general election has just been called in Australia for 14th September. The subsequent political shenanigans will be at their hottest at pretty much the same time the Arctic ice melt reaches its climax. We can hope the melt will in part at least inform, if not the politicians in their policy platforms, the electorate in their voting choices. It's probably a forlorn hope...

Keep an eye out for the NSIDC graph... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmfcJP_0eMc&feature=youtube_gdata_player
