MASIE Records as of Day 67 – 2016

MASIE and NSIDC are two different sea ice indexes. The difference between the two methodologies is here.

Ron Clutz reminded me that MASIE’s records are different than NSIDC.  (MASIE data is only back to 2006)

The only record 2016 holds (so far) is earliest maximum. 2016 has the 4th lowest maximum behind 2006, 2007 and 2015.
