Arctic sea ice / Re: What the Buoys are telling

Help me understand one thing- didn't #14 totally "go for a swim" in the Beaufort last year before passing McClure Strait? So wouldn't the ice around it be pretty much mostly first year ice? (Attached picture from Jim Hunt's post of September 3, 2016.) I guess I gotta go back and review more pix to see what it met up with when it drifted down the channel...   ...but in any event any MYI it's next to now doesn't seem to me to be the same MYI it was planted in.

The following NOAA data (& first two plots) and BoM (last two plots) weekly ENSO information, indicate that there is still a possibility of a weak El Nino forming before the end of this year:

The "scrum" between the member of the White House press corps and Sara Huckabee not the end of things.  I expect to see some members of the press corps to be more prepared to call out Donnie's lies in the future.

So this thing with Donnie's attack of the press.....and Donnie's continued going to escalate further.

Those animals laying down out there - are they the ones that ran themselves to death trying to stay in the blade shade?
These ones, I guess, made calculations using the sun angle and wind direction before choosing their blade shadow.

PV might offer even more shade at such a location.
Whoa!  Looks like there's more on the way!
Arctic sea ice / Re: Arctic Image of the Day
« Last post by jdallen on Today at 02:30:16 AM »
I am dreaming of the North Pole and Central Arctic Basin full of round ice floes with no square shapes to be seen anymore. Today's thin sea ice in the CAB is no longer capable to survive intact when sea ice floes toss each other (due to winds and ocean currents), turning them all ....
Deli, you may have accidentally found the single largest surviving block of ice in the CAB...
