Cato, I think you have to view the DMI ice thickness figures with a degree of caution - as there seems to be a bit of disagreement between their prediction and those of Navy's HYCOM, as well as the last data reported by CryoSat e.g. DMI seems to have a band of 4.5 m thick ice just north of Greenland and CA - which isn't present in either of these other 2 sources. It also had the Kane Basin as being filled with ~4 m thick ice - but the latest MODIS images suggest this isn't the case

Rob, it was published.

Hi Neven, While the JAXA numbers have been dropping slowly over the last week. There is a lot of blue on the Modis images and some of the areas previously covered by melt ponds in the East Siberian sea have already drained. The regional maps seem to be suggesting that a fair amount of ice has been transported back into areas of the AC and ESS that were previously cleared and have raised SST. So not really sure that it has been a "good" first week for sea ice in June.

Bob, It is highly unlikely that a highly published scientists such as Rignot (with a H-factor of 63 and 493 papers to his name) would agree to be a co-author on a paper that he found "highly questionable".Co-authorship is voluntary and the norm is to remove your name from a paper you disagree with. Also reading the links you provide - I also can't see how you interpret what he said as highly questionable. Especially as he also stated: "Hansen’s co-author Eric Rignot said in an email that the exploration of such extreme scenarios was justified “because they are not unlikely, and they are more likely than the more conservative scenarios branded by [United Nations] reports.”
Sorry – I meant to type “century” (as in one hundred) rather than "centaury" - the plant

Seems like 2015 has decided to play catch-up. Jaxa has report two centaury breaks over the last two days (112 and 163).
