Sea Ice Extent – Day 101 – 6th Highest Global Sea Ice For This Day – Antarctic 1.4 million above ‘Normal’

6th Highest Global Sea Ice For This Day. 

Antarctic 1.4 million above the 1981-2010 mean. That is 22%!

Arctic has been rising for last 4 days and is higher than 2006 and 2007.

  1. Something I’ve noticed on this website is the flattening of the maximum extent over the past decade or longer. With the exception of 2013 it appears historical norms are no longer exhibiting bell-shaped curvature as would be expected. My assumption is that it’s because of wind patterns packing and then unpacking Arctic sea ice. How normal is this? And would it not explain polar bear mortality amongst cubs?
