2012 was the lowest minimum sea ice according to most sea ice extent charts.

DMI is now showing 2016 crossing to be higher than 2012. JAXA doesn’t show this yet.

  1. JAXA’s graph shows three other years being lower than 2012 on this date as well. That they don’t agree with MASIE is no big issue. I do not believe that anyone truly knows whether or not we’re at the lowest extent or merely near it, and breaking records by small margins after the strongest El Niño in nearly 20 years is immaterial anyway.

    • In 2012 there was a massive cyclone that smashed the ice resulting in the record low. Without another cyclone there won’t be a record.
