One thought on “MASIE April 29 2014 – Arctic Ice Extent By Region As of Day 118”
Yes Barents has been adding ice, offsetting melting elsewhere, and is now only 0.06 MKm2 below its max (day 86 and near to max on day 99).
Also, Central Arctic remains at its max and Greenland Sea has lost only 0.03 from its max, which occurred on day 112..
