Very strange indeed. Is the situation south of Victoria Island also odd?
" in summer they could sail in the melt ponds" That, is scary. Very scary.

Has anyone else notices the polyannas (or worse open water) between Greenland and Ellesmere Island and between Greenland and the central Arctic Ice pack. Any ideas about why these are developing or if they are real https://seaice.uni-bremen.de/data/amsr2/today/Arctic_AMSR2_nic.png
Wouldn't get too excited about naming the storm. After all Sandy was not a hurricane at landfall.

How much Ice is going to b left below 75 N (Eli says a flat zero which is scary). How much below 80 N. Will it be possible to sail blue water to closer than 85N to the pole (looks like it) One of the problems with sea ice charts is that they show ice you know in March is going to vanish in August, e.g. Hudson's Bay.

Looking at AMSR2 the question is how much ice will be left south of 75N in early August and there may not be any. Scary.

It really depends on the degree to which polar stratospheric clouds have formed and to an extent on how long they have been there. It is not clear how much time is needed for denitirification via ClONO2 deposition. Since it is only a month or so to first light and Dec-Jan were quite warm, a cold stratosphere by itself may not be enough
What is going on with Cryosphere Today?? It show a huge increase in sea ice area today
Navegante: Hurricane Sandy took a sharp left turn towards NY/NJ. FWIW, Eli has always thought that the amount of ice coverage outside of 80 N is a good indicator of the state of the ice.

Thanks for the update Eli
