Storm seems to be having some effect in thickness. http://www7320.nrlssc.navy.mil/hycomARC/navo/arcticictn_nowcast_anim30d.gif

I thought I was looking at todays image, but that was yesterday. I think it is massive fires. http://www.arctic.io/observations/8/2013-07-30/7-N64.531009-E60.03906/Russia-Khanty-Mansi-Autonomous%20Okrug

Does anyone know if this is a big fire in the heat-wave area, or just gray clouds? More fires are supposed to warm the permafrost by darkening the soil, leading to more methane release. http://www.arctic.io/observations/8/2013-07-29/7-N65.795685-E64.526969/Russia-Yamalo-Nenets-Autonomous%20Okrug

I was thinking last month that the Beaufort was not opening up as usual due to the PAC. The winds were pushing into that region, so it seemed from hycom/CICE, but I don't have time to look back at the data.
Kugluktuk should be about +18C anomaly, but this looks like it's about normal there. http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/psd/map/images/fnl/sfctmpmer_01b.fnl.html
Aaarg -- I don't know why the end parenthesis was added into the URL on my links, and I didn't even make the links, I just pasted the URL in, so I guess I'll blame Typepad, not IE. http://meteomodel.pl/klimat/arcticice_nsidc.png http://ocean.dmi.dk/arctic/plots/icecover/icecover_current_new.png http://meteomodel.pl/klimat/arcticice.png
Henry, take a look here, you can toggle back to last year as well. http://earthdata.nasa.gov/labs/worldview/?map=-725024,-470272,2039776,1549056&products=baselayers,MODIS_Terra_CorrectedReflectance_TrueColor~overlays,arctic_coastlines_3413&time=2013-06-28&switch=arctic
I'd like to point out that for extent (http://meteomodel.pl/klimat/arcticice_nsidc.png), this year is about where 2007 was at this point, or with DMI (http://ocean.dmi.dk/arctic/plots/icecover/icecover_current_new.png), about equal to 2009, which diverged with 2012 only at the end of July. For area (http://meteomodel.pl/klimat/arcticice.png) it's below 2009 and almost same as 2011. 2011 and 2012 area diverged on day 210. Just looking at extent or area doesn't always tell us a lot.
That link doesn't seem to work. maybe this http://ocean.dmi.dk/arctic/images/MODIS/Kennedy/201303221249.NOAA.jpg

Ahhh, after seeing this, with the new crack N of Nares, can't wait for next DMI NOAA image update. http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/data/satellite/hrpt_dfo_ir_100.jpg http://ocean.dmi.dk/arctic/lincoln.uk.php

In case anyone doesn't know about this imagery site: http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/satellite/index_e.html Scroll down to HRPT. I like the very first link below that... Can see some smaller fracturing on Siberian side now.

It looks as though cracks are a little more visible now above Ellesmere I. http://ocean.dmi.dk/arctic/images/MODIS/Lincoln/201303061219.NOAA.jpg from here: http://ocean.dmi.dk/arctic/lincoln.uk.php

Aaron, your link didn't work -- I think it was this: http://www7320.nrlssc.navy.mil/hycomARC/navo/arcticictn_nowcast_anim30d.gif Interesting to see the thick ice pull away from the Canadian Archipelago lately.

Jim, thanks. I've been looking for events such as this, hypothesizing that the reduced area of multi-year ice will become more mobile as it shrinks. I wonder if this "Morris Jesup Polynia", which seems to be freezing over leaving the old ice offshore, will make it more likely that section of old ice will be shunted south.
Very interesting current ice thickness animation, with thick ice pulling away from N. Greenland. Sign of things to come? http://www7320.nrlssc.navy.mil/hycomARC/navo/arcticictn_nowcast_anim30d.gif
Karl, Does your doctorate perchance have anything to do with showing that the commonly accepted radiative transfer physics of CO2 are incorrect?
Uh, posted this wrong first... I've been looking at the green water for several days, and I'm not sure if light angle or bloom. However, here you can see a non-green patch within the green area, which sways me toward bloom. http://www.arctic.io/observations/8/2012-09-19/8-N83.421226-E42.418621 Wish someone was out there sampling.

Latest images, it looks as though a bomb has gone off on the north coast of Greenland, with large fractures connected to Ellesmere. http://lance-modis.eosdis.nasa.gov/imagery/subsets/?subset=Arctic_r03c03.2012257.terra.500m

It appears the ice along the north coast of Ellesmere Is. is on the move. What this means for the CAB area, I don't know. http://www.arctic.io/observations/8/2012-09-12/7-N84.580051-W84.546388
I'm trying to reconcile this ice age chart, and the modis images. http://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/files/2000/08/Figure5.png and http://www.arctic.io/observations/8/2012-09-11/5-N79.729278-E139.618159 It looks as though the "ridge" of older ice has moved from between Wrangel and the New Siberian Islands, to directly pole-ward of the New Siberian Islands. First year ice on the chart pole-ward of Franz Joseph has been eaten away. Does this seem correct? Any significant first year ice left?

Thin clouds, but can see how ice in the Laptev Bite is really detached. http://www.arctic.io/observations/8/2012-09-12/7-N84.73839-E132.495295 Perhaps yesterday was better -- http://lance-modis.eosdis.nasa.gov/imagery/subsets/?subset=Arctic_r04c04.2012255.terra.1km Also, anyone have a link to updated ice age charts? It would be nice to see how the first year ice is fairing.
