, insolation. I'll get my coat.
3.85 m km2 for NSIDC Sept avg, which was my guesstimate last month. Peeking through the lance-modis clouds, the ice looks like crumble topping on the Eurasian side of longitude 0deg / 180deg. Not hard to imagine a load of it whizzing through Fram if atmospheric conditions stay as they are. On the other hand, if it stays cloudy and cool and less onsolation gets a cagey midway number from me.
At work (a water utility) we have lunchtime talks, given by members of staff, on work and projects that they're involved in. I took the opportunity last October to give a talk on the Arctic sea ice (with the somewhat lamentable title of 'Dude, where's my icecap?'), using visuals & info from here and other likeminded sources. The turnout wasn't bad, albeit lower than average - probably because it's not a core business topic. Those who came were also the usual suspects, but hopefully some awareness was raised. Anyway, if you're lucky enough to work for an organisation that can hold informal talks at lunch or after work, it's one option for getting the news out. The question is how to extend further to those who don't have as much latent curiosity in things going on beyond their backyard.
