BTW, Jan Mayen, the smallish island North of Island, experienced the hottest July (7.4 C) since recordings started in 1921. This might be thanks to the warm Ocean surrounding the island, also still staying put halfway through August. http://ocean.dmi.dk/arctic/satellite/index.uk.php (click anomalies as parameter) Funfact about the Maximum summer averagetemp at Jan Mayen: While most Places in the North have the max-average temps in the end of July/ start of Aug., Jan Mayen have dipped that Maximum date just 3 days ago see links below. http://www.yr.no/place/Norway/Jan_Mayen/Sør-Jan/detailed_statistics.html And then take a look at Longyearbyen (compare "average" With "normal": http://www.yr.no/place/Norway/Svalbard/Longyearbyen/detailed_statistics.html Both Places got scary high temps FAR ABOVE the normal for the Whole 12 month period....

John Christensen: Thanks for reminding me of the national unbalanced Production. This is what I fear most of all With a changing climate due to the dwindling volume of ice in the North, every nation ought to be more or less self supplied. Neven is himself a devoute gardener, at least he will become one day when his housing Project is more finished. Following the rapid decline and breakup of the ice around Greenland and all the channels in the Canadian Archipelago is really among the most facinating stuff to watch out for every year. At the Forum (see Espens link above) you get to realize the immense scale of Greenland and it's many fjords. The Steenby calving looks rather miniscule nd minor compared to fastice reaking loose closer to the shoreline, but if that Steensby seem small, it's nevertheless the exact size of the municipality I live in just South of Oslo. So all out there, I think we forget what tremendous scale and numbers we're juggling in the air daily with the CT, JAXA, PIOMAS and whatever numbers we're talking about.... Kevin: Your memory serves. Positive!

""To add to the above map is a link with number of fires in 2014: 365 & number of hectares affected: 2,856,670.90"" That's almost 3 times larger area than all cultivated farmland in Norway...phew!
