JAXA Sea Ice Extent (Antarctic and Arctic and Global) – Day 171 – 2016

NSIDC has not updated its sea ice data for 3 days. So here is JAXA.

JAXA sea ice extent data from Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency.

JAXA versus MASIE versus NSIDC – Day 165 – 2016

Now that NSIDC is publishing data again I thought I would post two graphs comparing JAXA MASIE and NSIDC.

I’m doing it for Arctic and Antarctic (but MASIE has no Antarctic data)

Normally in the Arctic JAXA and NSIDC are very close only at the minimum … but now they are very close.

And in the Antarctic they might as well be doing just one they overlap so much.

JAXA/MASIE Sea Ice Extent (Antarctic and Arctic and Global) – Day 165 – 2016

A couple of days ago I pointed out one of the other ice indexes (DMI) had now crossed over the 2012 track.

MASIE (see bottom graph) has actually gained ice the last couple of days and is above 2010,2011 and 2012.

JAXA is still 100,000 sq km below 2012.

JAXA/MASIE Sea Ice Extent (Antarctic and Arctic and Global) – Day 164 – 2016

A couple of days ago I pointed out one of the other ice indexes (DMI) had now crossed over the 2012 track.

MASIE (see bottom) is now very close (4300 sq km — but it was 2011 not 2012). JAXA is still 300,000 sq km below 2012.
