Gefeliciteerd Neven! (Could you give me a reminder when you approach 100,000? Should be possible to reach this milestone hopefully before you have to extend the topic of this blog to Antarctic.)

Did anyone notice that we can see the arctic again?. Webcams are back!

I just (re) found a short animation of 20 years ice movement, compressed into 50 seconds. Illustrative about what is (was) normal movements. [Fixed the link, N.]

Nice work Wipneus!. Also nice to see that the sum of Exponential fits for all grid cells results in a Gomperz fit for the total. The location of the blue spot is also remarkable.(Is it?) Sceptics will continue for many years: "there is still ice on the North Pole".

@Idunno: You need some humor to survive these times. Not knowing WUWT was typing their record-announcement when I was typing my comment. Their trick to use % to measure recovery is clever. This will give even higher records in the future. And after a few years when also winter extent has gone down significantly, this is probably the only way they can have a record. But the bottom line is simple: You can only have a record refreeze after a record melt.

Well, if the CT global SIA anom record is out of reach (is it?) the last record (nr 13?) will be "the largest recovery". But this record is not something we will have to track. Others will do. ;-)

@Jim Petit. Your graphs are an excellent presentation of the scary numbers. I've seen your graphs many times before this year, but just today I discovered that you can still improve them. (Graph Annual volume maximum and annual volume loss; Wrong unit at the vertical axis? Volume in km^2???)
CMIP5 suggests 60% of 1979-2011 rate of decline is externally forced. What does this mean? What is the other 40%?I tried to download the article but: paywall! Google found an other interesting document from Stroeve:

Artful Dodger: 10 days not 10 September? Indeed wrong. I will have to wait a few days more. (Hoping the ice will not melt faster.) The previous record (excluding 2012) was 41% relative loss, around 23(?) August 2007. Present value is 48%.
Just assume the anomaly stays at -2.36 for the comming 10 days. The normal amount for 10 September is 4.72. The remaining ice will be 2.36, That is 50% of 'normal'. Is this another nice (No, not nice) milestone?
Re:Amu, 19 Augustus 06:56: is this the reason Polarstern is heading toesta the Laptev Bite? After all, the titel of their expedition is -XXVII/3 "IceArc" (Sea ice - ocean - seafloor interactions in the changing Arctic"
Webcam 2 is alive again. Wet images. Based on the black/white markers on the reference poles a lot of melt took place last day's. Does anybody know the blak/white/black distances?

Did our Polar Bear destroy webcam2? (no update of images last 48 hrs...)

Wel done, this seperate page with regionale graphs. Nice combination of CT annual graph with the monthly graphs from NSIDC. However from the values it is clear that they use different boundaries for the regions. Sometimes the area value is above extent, sometimes below...
Toggle Commented Jul 14, 2011 on SIE 2011 update 11: the heat is on at Arctic Sea Ice it will be interesting to see what happens exactly. If we see someting. The latest picture from webcam 1 is different from the one before.
