Sea Ice Extent – Day 164 – Antarctic 2nd Highest – Global 15th Highest For This Day

2nd Highest Antarctic Sea Ice For This Day – 1 million above the 1981-2010 mean. – Above 2 standard deviation.

15th Highest Global Sea Ice For This Day – Above the 1981-2010 mean.

Arctic no longer a record low for the day. So far 45 days in 2015 have been record lows. 2006 has 79 record lows. 2012 has 127.

South / North



  1. As hoped for by Paris COP promoters, and by Californians looking for El Nino precipitation, the Blob in the North Pacific has intensified and may at least partly fulfill both expectations.

    HADSST3 results for May are now in, and the sea surface temperature warming anomaly is up:

    Global +0.12C over last May,
    NH +0.16C over last May.

    That will show up also in air temperature estimates, since 71% of the earth’s surface is covered by oceans. For example, UAH TLT anomalies show Global oceans +0.06C over last May, but Global land -0.1C, so Global UAH is only up +0.02C over May 2014. (Note: UAH uses satellites to measure air temperatures many meters above land or ocean, while surface datasets like HADCRUT, BEST, GISTEMP use the measured SSTs in their global mean temperature estimates).

    BTW UAH shows N Pole slightly cooler than last May, while the S Pole land is a whopping 0.2C colder.

    Does the truth even matter today?
