Err Guys! while you have all been bickering you seem to have missed the fact that Petermann lost a fairly big chunk of ice back on 26/27th July.Picture a day or so ago in the images thread.
quote>>>The SIO is organized by the Sea Ice Prediction Network (as part of the Arctic research program 'Study of Environmental Arctic Change', or SEARCH), and is a compilation of projections for the September 2015 Arctic sea ice extent, based on NSIDC monthly extent values.<<< Neven is the date in this correct?
quote from Wayne>>>it would take a man on the moon event. This would be a simple small boat reaching the iceless North Pole. It can be this year, but no one is getting their yacht on the ready,<<< do not be so sure that no one is getting ready. I have a friend who is planning to take a small boat south from Canada in the Atlantic this year refit in Panama and then go through the Pacific and transit the NW passage next year. I am trying to talk her into heading for the North Pole instead. Now if I know of one person with plans and a shoe string budget you can bet that there are others with money out there. I think you can put money on someone doing that and also on a transit of the Northern and NorthWest passages in one season. Someone like Branson will do it in a power boat. If not this year it will happen next year unless I am totally wrong of course.

MASIE data has extent drops in most of the peripheral seas and when you go look at the University of Hamburg map there is visible extent drop in each of those areas.

And MASIE just dropped over 270,000 km2 between day 172 and 173. The game is ON!

and now my original comment has disappeared. the link is to an article about a prediction by the Alfred Wegener Institute saying that it is likely that we will have a new record low this year having studied the current state of the ice. wanted to draw your attention to this Neven feel free to delete as it is off topic for the thread.

sorry I clicked post before I posted the link. silly me. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-3551520/Arctic-sea-ice-reach-record-lows-summer-Blankets-cover-set-shrink-warmer-weather.html

I just looked at the U Bremen website and the Arctic graph shows a big drop. there is no equivalent "error" on the Antarctic plot so it may be real. Missing swath second day but different area.

This year or some time very soon the ice edge will melt as far as the North pole from the Atlantic side. You can be sure that soon after that there will be cruise ships running North Pole adventures. I anticipate a new record either this year or next year by the way.
with the significant uptick on CT area it suggests a curtailed melting season. similar significant disruptions to the curve have happened in the past in 1983 1994 and 2004 when with the brakes on the remainder of the final melt was between 200,000 and 500,000 km2. I therefore predict that the final figure will be between 3.05 and 3.4 million km2. a lower final figure now looks unlikely to me unless we get another significant weather event to disrupt the situation.

MASIE dropped over 360,000km2 today the second time this month that there has been a drop of over 300,000km2. we live in interesting times.

Cryosphere today SIA is now about 30 days ahead of last year. Going to be an interesting season is it not?
Toggle Commented Mar 21, 2015 on Early record, late record at Arctic Sea Ice
the Cryosphere today SIA has not changed much for about a week. Getting less and less likely that there will be a big freeze. http://arctic.atmos.uiuc.edu/cryosphere/arctic.sea.ice.interactive.html from day 65 13,008040 to day 73 13,001980.
