  1. At the same time day 255 produced a new Arctic minimum.

    Day 255 shows a major drop of almost 57,000 KM2, resulting in a new NH minimum of 5.40 M Km2, 34.7% of the March Maximum.

    Losses occurred in all regions except Beaufort and Greenland Seas, including new minimums in Chukchi, East Siberian, Kara and Canadian Archipelago.

      1. I think there is some confusion and I apologize.

        It would be a new minimum for 2014 I was discussing. Not an All-Time Minimum. It is a long, long way from the 2012 minimum.
