May 3 2014 MASIE Update (This Arctic Sea Ice dataset from MASIE only has 28 days of data.)
This is the gain/loss from day 94 to day 121. Negative = loss. Sorted with biggest loser in last 7 days at top. Northern Hemisphere is the grand total.
The bottom 3 have all gained in last 7 days. Including 44,747 in the Barents Sea.
I assume the Chukchi Sea and Hudson Bay only started melting in last few days since the 7 day melt is the same as the 28 day melt.
The melt has resumed in the last 7 days after a small pause in previous 7.

Here is the MASIE graph. The flat lines at the bottom are regions that have melted and are now ice free. The completely flat lines elsewhere indicate no melting at all yet. The changing lines indicate melting regions.
