See this thread and post for the PIOMAS average thickness graph for July 2016 (also supplied by Wipneus). From the gridded data, Wipneus estimates the volume at day 213 to be 7.448 [1000 km3], fourth place after 2010-2012, but will presumably give the official number soon.

SHELL IS PULLING OUT OF THE ARCTIC!!!  ;D ;D


Shell abandons Alaska Arctic drilling

Shell has abandoned its controversial drilling operations in the Alaskan Arctic in the face of mounting opposition. ...

Officially it's because they didn't find much oil but privately they admit awareness of widespread opposition...  ;D


P.S. I posted on an existing thread as well but am thinking this is big news and surely deserves its own thread?
