  1. Day 282: MASIE extent grows by 391,000 in the last 4 days to 6.43 M Km2 or 41% of March max.

    Ice recovery is especially impressive in Canadian Archipelago, where UAH is showing the coldest temperature anomaly on earth.

    That region has gone from a minimum of 0.33 M on day 260, to an extent of 0.69 M 22 days later (from 39% of max to 81% of max)’

    Other regions recovering strongly:

    Central Arctic has grown back to 98% of the max last March
    Beaufort Sea is up to 71%,
    Canadian Archipelago is now at 81%
    East Siberian Sea is up to 48%
    Greenland Sea is up to 45%

  2. The average Arctic Ice thickness is increasing. This means that the heat from the Sun reaching the Arctic is declining. Solar Cycle 24 is winding down. The long term forecast is extreme cold, complete Arctic Sea Ice recovery and Northern Hemisphere lower summer temperatures.
