A great animation. It really captures the essence of what needs to be conveyed. I do hope it gets wide circulation

@William "as it receives less heat from the sun". Agreed. "as it receives less heat from ....ocean currents". Hmmm.... "Additionally, the central Arctic Basin receives significant contributions of ice from other regions from ice transport." But so do other parts of the Arctic. In fact, all that this is saying is that the ice is on the move and, in that respect, doesn't make the Basin all that different. Henry
Rob, many thanks for that. The article by Polyakov et al was useful too. Henry

@Eli "...the pattern of the refreezing will be interesting.." I read this site with great, but scientifically naive, interest. I am curious about the questions implicit in this comment. The questions I have are these: what happens at this point i.e. the refreezing? As the artic ocean seems to a whole lot warmer than it has been, won't there be a much quicker and steeper(?) loss of heat into the immediate atmosphere than before? Does this have implications for artic and circum-arctic weather? Henry

"what happens with the permafrost and methane clathrates in the medium to long run"? Yes, that is a real worry. And am I right in thinking that this season has seen a particular decline is shore-fast ice? Henry

@Remko But that's because their approach to such things as facts is somewhat along these lines:

@D Personally, if I were betting I might go even steeper than the 15 year trend I think the oil companies are also betting on this. Seriously depressing news (though not 'new' news):
21 Sept IJIS extent 4,901,406 (an increase of 23,125 km2). Does that mean that curtain is falling?
