We're looking at the Nares Strait and waiting for the Ice Arch to collapse. It's due: "Despite warm temperatures over most of the Arctic this winter, and despite the extent of Arctic sea ice hitting the fourth-lowest on record in May of this year, the ice arch remained intact in late June. The light blue tint of the ice arch suggests that the ice has thinned and is becoming wet as it melts. It doesn’t appear to be quite as wet and thin as the fingers of ice on the shores and between Canadian islands, but bits of dark open water at the coast of Ellesmere Island and very dark ice off of Greenland suggest that collapse should occur shortly." https://modis.gsfc.nasa.gov/gallery/individual.php?db_date=2020-06-29

Hello everybody! Here's an interesting study linking Rossby wave trains (or in this case, the Pacific-Arctic teleconnection [PARC]) to the Arctic accelerated melt period between about 2007 to 2012. I know volume has been going down anyway, but the accompanying article seems to only cover Arctic sea ice extent. ABSTRACT: https://journals.ametsoc.org/doi/pdf/10.1175/JCLI-D-18-0783.1 ARTICLE: https://www.futurity.org/arctic-sea-ice-tropics-rossby-waves-2190282/ Please feel free to chime in with you-all's knowledgeable retorts!

Current condition of Nares Strait changes the meaning of "fast ice." It's moving fast alright: https://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/images/145232/ice-arch-crumbles-early

Here's a great winter retrospective with lots of AO and not much ENSO: https://www.aer.com/science-research/climate-weather/arctic-oscillation/

Hi Martin, I don't know if this helps any but I found this on DiscoverBlog: D-brief Is Antarctica Gaining or Losing Ice? Nature May Have Just Settled The Debate By Eric Betz | May 16, 2017 (excerpt) 'Zwally still stands by his 2015 study, but in an interview last week, he said nature has recently changed the equation. His team is crunching numbers from the past two years, looking at ice melting and snowfall rates in Antarctica. And they found something startling. The melt rates in West Antarctica just increased significantly. His calculations now show that the continent is in overall balance. The findings haven’t been peer reviewed yet, but he plans to present them at a science conference later this year. “In our paper we said that might happen in two to three decades,” Zwally says. “Well, this is an unpublished result, but now we’re very close to the zero line.”' http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/d-brief/2017/05/16/is-antarctica-gaining-or-losing-ice-nature-may-have-settled-the-debate/ Back to lurkland.

This is well worth waiting for. Thanks, Neven.
