Sea Ice Update April 24 2014 – Antarctic Sea Ice 46th Daily Record of 2014 – Global Sea Ice 1.01 million sq km Above Normal

A quick update for sea ice extent for day 113 of 2014:

  • Global Sea Ice Extent is 1,013,000 sq km above the 1981-2010 mean.
  • Antarctic Sea Ice Extent is 1,488,000 sq km above the 1981-2010 mean. That is the 18th daily record in a row and 46th for 2014
  • Arctic Sea Ice Extent is -476,000 sq km below the 1981-2010 mean. Day 113 is actually higher than the previous 5 days. Maybe near normal 80N temperatures have something to do with it.
