Arctic Sea Ice Extent Within 1 Standard Deviation For Last 11 Days

Due to the government shutdown, sea ice extent data was unavailable for about 20 days. It is now available again here.

It appears that for the last 11 days Arctic Sea Ice Extent has been within one standard deviation.  Not much of a death spiral.



  1. Or put another way, this year is only 5-6 days behind the average for this day. (since many Arctic regions regions freeze to 100% of their possible area, I find time makes more sense than +/- area if that makes sense.)
