I find it interesting that Arctic SIA reached 12.5 million km2 for the first time yesterday (day 34), the same day it did last year. But what's even more interesting to me is that it took 27 days to get there after reaching the 12.0 million km2 mark for the first time, whereas last year, that feat was accomplished in just 10 days.

I've been eyeing this year's line with some trepidation, expecting a long run of lots of growth to start any day now. But it's not happening yet (obviously). It's interesting to note that over the past three weeks, just 225,000 km2 of ice area has been added, while by comparison, 852,000 km2 was added during the same span last year, and 829,300 km2 in 2007. Okay, my guess at a maximum: 13.1 million km2 (and it will reach that number on February 29).
