  1. For easier reference to the 2014 melt season, I have added a column into the tracking spreadsheet which includes the NH reported ice extent for each day from April through September 2014. As new reports come in for 2015, they can then be compared to 2014 on the same days. The comparison is interesting because the two trajectories were comparable during April.

    Day 123, May 3 results from MASIE
    In 2014 on day 122, NH extent went down 100K, while 2015 day 123 gained 52K, to 13.46M Km2. 2014 lead is reduced to 1%.
