The Beaufort cracking event has really spread into more central regions in the last 1-2 days. (When viewed on Lance Modaps) Could the entire region become unstable?
Also O/T. Tropical storms migrate toward poles

It also attracts the birds
3.6 Mkm2 I tend to believe PIOMAS and it thinks there is more ice now than last year. There has been the suggestion that PIOMAS overestimates the thickness / volume of thinner ice. There seems to be more of that this year which could then prove me wrong. I do think the PAC has tended to spread the ice and this year will start to catch 2012 soon. I am expecting the the Laptev bite to see to that.
3.1 M Km2 And Mauna Loa CO2 at 400.03 ppm yesterday. Just a number I suppose.
The Mauna Loa weekly CO2 data is being shown as daily values at the moment, as the first 400ppm value seems to be imminent.
OT but have we had some ijis "century breaks" ?

Message to brain. Check before posting.
A lot seems to have changed at Ilulissat glacier over one year. I had thought that the ice in front of the glacier was very thick. Where did it all go?
Could the persistent CAB high pressure move significant multiyear ice into the Beaufort sea. It would be difficult for it to survive a summer there.

Another small step perhaps?

Has anyone been watching how long the Northwest passage and Northern sea routes have been open. Another two dominoes perhaps?
A nice sea level map.

Not particularly on theme, but.... Tax breaks for oils companies.
Not sure where to find the actual numbers but it looks like the CT CAB sea ice anomaly has reached a new low.

Kris. Its interesting to compare the modis images of the NWP with the Bremen charts. Melt pond issues perhaps?
CT is back. Has that been mentioned?

Modis has "improved" its website. Anyone got a quicklink to the daily arctic images?

I suppose this is mostly methane. They dont seem to have any idea how to stop it and this gas leak may last weeks. I dont suppose the hydrogen sulphide will help remaining North Sea fish much.

Is the DMI a glitch?

I know the focus here is CT, but the other graphs, arctic-roos, dmi (30%) and nsidc are all climbing. only CT seems to be staying near record lows.

The Kara sea dropped a lot on the last CT update. Holding off the advances on the pacific side for now.

Is the DMI 30% extent a record today?

12.4904337 million sq km. I suppose thats sticking my neck out. If the high pressure persists where it is, then melting and compaction in the Barents sea might just match gains in the Bering sea, untill the sun returns again. Ill take a punt on the peak already behind us and wait for todays update to scupper me.
