Great report, Jim! Very interesting to see the winter conditions & hazards, then a very different set of warm(er) months hazards! From Jim's report: "When a light swell comes in the 5km sea ice floe we’d been working on broke into pieces not more than 30m [across] in an hour..."
A-Team, Lurking here for a year (= still a newbie & still learning how to evaluate the graphs & graphics). Can you provide links to the 5 tabs that you refer to as most important (Modis, 89Ghz, 36VH 18V, Ascat, SLP). I know these are probably in the 'Arctic Sea Ice Graphs' link above, but frankly I get overwhelmed with the shear volume of data. If these are key, I want to watch them daily as you suggest. Thank you for all the info you provide. I AM learning a lot (slowly)...
A-Team, Thank you for the Narcissus image. I will let you know how this turns out! (but it may take some time)

Question/request for A-Team: I would like to see if you would be willing to email me a high-resolution copy of the Narcissus image (looking at his reflection in the cracked ice). I think that image is such an incredible metaphor for what is occurring on this planet. Everyone who sees it is absolutely amazed. I have a friend with a high quality printer that can print on various substrates & I would like to create an image for the wall of my office. I have not been able to figure out how to send a private message or email to another typepad member & so I am risking clogging up the blog with this request (with Neven's permission). My email is brrader then that symbol that means at and it is hosted by yahoo. Thank you.

Hi Crandles, Thanks for the comments. I was particularly interested in the recent Antarctic (& Greenland) study b/c of the recent excitement in 'camp denial' after the record high Antarctic ice extent was announced. Is that extent record based on a combination of sea ice and land ice then? With the sea ice portion expanding/contracting and leading to the yearly change? From the recent study, though, if volume is decreasing and a significant portion of that loss is from land ice, then that would have more serious consequences for sea level rise, yes? With some of the sea temp anomalies we have seen up in the northern hemisphere, it will be interesting to see what the melting season looks like down south. I assume there is more energy in the system down there, too? Thanks again. & thanks also to Nevin and all the contributors to this blog. I am learning a lot and I appreciate your contributions. IR
I would be interested in a discussion of the 2012 record Antarctic extent compared to the analysis released today and referred to above which shows a volume reduction over time. How are these explained given our current warming overall? I have seen some of the info explaining the increase in Antarctic extent (increased winds, ozone hole, etc.), but I still don’t really have a clear understanding of the extent increase in 2012. Is the ice flattening and spreading?
Aaron Lewis, thank you for the detailed post concerning water vapor. Question (tried to answer online): what is insolution?
Very interesting post over at Chris Reynolds' blog:

Thank you all for this site. I am learning a lot. Did not see this posted, but it appears another cyclone is on tap:
