As a interested lurker on this I have been looking into the Ice export through the FS since the animations posted by A-Team [great work again!] A couple of recent papers are of particular interest. first looking at the modelling in CIMP5: http://www.uib.no/People/ngfls/mypapers/Langehaug_etal_2012_in_press.pdf And the next looking at the increase in export through the FS: http://www.the-cryosphere.net/5/821/2011/tc-5-821-2011.pdf This one in particular gives some insight to winter ice export and how this affects summer minimums. On the basis that the cracked nature of the ice pack increases surface area exposed to wind and decreases the overall pack viscosity (for want of a better explanation) what we are seeing is the potential for significant export of ice through the FS. The next indicator of the likely summer minimum will be looking at this export value. Anybody got a link?
