  1. sunshine, a curiosity. I looked at nsidc ice extent number for NH 2014, and 2015 (so far). The changes you referenced result in nsidc extents matching close to MASIE numbers in 2015. However, in 2014 nsidc reports were lower by 300k to 600k, a differential that was often seen in the past. The result is the gap in the two years observed in the above graph, whereas in MASIE the trajectories are closer.

  2. So who wants to take a guess on what the min is actually going to be. Im on record as saying its going to be slightly below 2006 which was at 5.94m my guess is 5.75m which is significantly above last years 5.2m

    • Are your numbers Sept, average extent as measured by nsidc? Because that is what the Sea Ice Prediction Network goes by.
