Arctic Sea Ice Anomaly is 1.2 million sq km higher than 2012 on the same day

UPDATE and Apology: The headline said Antarctic. The blog post said Arctic. I rushed. Sorry. This blog post is about the Arctic.

On this day in 2012, the Arctic Sea Ice Extent Anomaly from the 1981-2010 mean was 2.3 million sq km. Thats 31% below “normal”.

In 2013, the anomaly is now 1.07 million sq km – only 14.5% below normal.
