Well, I should say that I thought it was possible, but it seemed to be a very difficult undertaking!

Chris, Thanks for the reply. I knew that PIOMAS did assimilate data, but I did not think it was possible to do it on a "real-time" basis. I thought it was more of a long-term incorporation of weather data. Their work is impressive indeed!

With PIOMAS being a model, it would not seem that the upcoming August 2012 data can integrate events such as this freak cyclone that is ripping apart the ice. If this weather event does what people are predicting, then the PIOMAS value for volume at the end of the month will be high. I understand that they run an ensemble of simulations, but as the ice gets thinner with time, there are going to be events that the model does not take into account for the near-term. Thoughts?

They seem to project that a lot of high-latitude ice on the Russian side will melt completely in August. How did they do in 2011?
Hi AmbiValent, The 4.3 +/- 0.3 is an estimation of Sept. extent, not volume.
There are 17 days left until August 1st (day 212) and 1.1 million km^2 to get to 4 million km^2 by that date. That's 64k a day. At this rate, it's going to happen but there may be a slowdown at some point...
Have you noticed the ARC drift maps for the next week, Neven? Right out the Fram. Might not cause melting, but that might cause trouble for the pack in the long run this year.

CT out, down ~100k to 6.21 km^2!

From the maps and graphs, it seems that most of the lag for this year comes from the slow melt of Hudson Bay. Any heatwaves on the horizon in that area?
Mauna Loa CO2 now above 397 ppm for two weeks in a row!

It has updated to May 14th now.

Hooray! Cryosphere Today is back online!

No problem, Neven

I can't get May 14th area, just May 14th extent on the main page. I tried refreshing. http://www.ijis.iarc.uaf.edu/seaice/extent/AMSRE_Sea_Ice_Area.png

Never mind, I found it. I see that it (IJIS area graph) is still at last October. Though, Neven, if CT comes back online sometime, you can start doing the CAPIE calculations again. :-)

Is the IJIS area graph back online too? What was the URL?

Here's some data--weekly CO2 at a new record of 397.17 ppm. Up over 4 ppm from this week last year! Of course, we are close to the max for this cycle... ftp://ftp.cmdl.noaa.gov/ccg/co2/trends/co2_weekly_mlo.txt

PIOMAS is updated! http://psc.apl.washington.edu/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/schweiger/ice_volume/
Toggle Commented Dec 6, 2011 on December 2011 Open Thread at Arctic Sea Ice
PIOMAS has updated for October 2011! The Oct. 31st value for 2011 is 6.85 km^3 (vs. 7.56 km^3 for 2010). http://psc.apl.washington.edu/wordpress/research/projects/arctic-sea-ice-volume-anomaly/data/

Thanks Chris and Pete. It seems Bremen updated early.
Extent for U Bremen had another drop for Sept. 10th. Can anyone take a ruler to the graph to see what the new record is? Thanks.
CT Area now beats 2010... 2010.6959 -1.6625719 3.0774183 minimum 2011.6438 -1.9939168 3.0650997
IJIS area just took a big drop and is now close 2007 levels. http://www.ijis.iarc.uaf.edu/seaice/extent/AMSRE_Sea_Ice_Area.png
It seems that updates are not happening today...IJIS, Bremen, and CT area have yet to give us the daily numbers.

I know about the UB extent graph, but where are the raw numbers?
