The volume of ice formed in the Winter appears to be increasing as well as the volume of ice melting in the Summer. Not difficult to imagine with the disappearance of the deep cover of snow on the multi year ice. Already the snow from many Fall storms fall in open water diminishing the cover. How much of that cover gets blown into open water rather than redistributing on the ice pack could also accelerate the melt. That snow and it's trapped air no longer insulate the layers below. So there may be a period where the volume of ice formed in the Winter continually increases. This would not be a contradiction to global warming. b
