"I'll try to be extra careful and conservative from now on." -- I hope not!! Keep up the good work.
According to the NSIDC, the Bremen method "allows small ice and open water features to be detected that are not observed by other products". So I take it that the Bremen measurement of extent is essentially more accurate in the current conditions. The NSIDC is valuable because it provides "longest time series of sea ice extent data, extending back to 1979."

The NSIDC chart today is disapointing http://nsidc.org/data/seaice_index/images/daily_images/N_stddev_timeseries.png Does anyone do a chart of charts - an average of the various observations? How significant are the NSIDC observations compared to the Bremen ones? Are there any other significant daily studies?
