  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.

    1. Anyone know why NSIDC now is using a standard deviation “gray” area to mark normality? It shows we have been “normal” all year now. Did I miss something?

  2. Hi
    Off topic but I do not know how to contact you. I have linked to your site in my blogroll and I wonder if you could return the favor to help us spread the message Down Under
    Thx
