One thought on “MASIE Arctic Sept 9 2014 – Tiny Loss- Big Central Arctic Gain

  1. Day 252 (Sept. 9) is now in–just 3 days away from the average date for the minimum (255 or Sept. 12).

    A new minimum is reached, but very close to the previous day. The table below shows the regions with remaining ice extent.

    Note that the four regions with most of the ice have all stopped melting and are recovering.

    Note also that the average NH minimum of 30 to 33 % has not been reached.
