Just noticed today that there is melting just north of the Queen Elizabeth Islands/Ellesmere Island. QEI are in the mid 50s according to the weather forecast. This is like the most frozen part of the Arctic. Probably melt ponds but if it separates from the land the whole Arctic is adrift.
This year, the Northern Route and Northwest Passage may open before Hudson Bay completely clears of ice. Astounding Also, Lean 2000 is 15 years ago. There have been major changes in interpretation of solar insolation back to Maunder, and also TSI as measured by satellite http://www.leif.org/EOS/2011GL045777.pdf http://arxiv.org/pdf/1407.3231.pdf
The other shocking thing is that the variability in Antarctic sea ice has really increased a lot from 1980.

What Eli tells his students is you can use Google to find the answer and Google to find the anti-answer. You need to learn how to smell the difference

The entrance to the NWP main channel is open on the Alaska side and the main channel itself is showing signs of melting. This could be interesting. What is different this year is how compact the ice has remained.

Very well done (given the gremlins, of course) and thanks for doing this.

No, Eli does not wish to live in an interesting melting season. He wants to live in dull times, where the climate is not changing much. If there is one thing that makes Eli really really angry it is that because of the idiots we now watch with fascination as the climate takes us to hell.

The temperatures on the Arctic coast of European Russia are off scale today. 26C in Khatanga, which is maybe why that part of the ice pack is melting.
WRT bubbles, why yes, they help, esp underwater with submarines but also with hulls

The high in Tiksi today was 25C/75F
