Is this the head of a giant snowman (yellow scarf, green mouth, dark blue eyes), as seen through a window with panes (black lines)?

He looks a bit sad......

So he said let's run and we'll have some fun now
Before I melt away......"

Sea Ice Transport 20.03.2017: a vast tongue of sea ice is passing well past the Franz Joseph Land to the Barentz Sea and weak sea ice around Svalbard today: https://worldview.earthdata.nasa.gov/?p=arctic&l=MODIS_Aqua_CorrectedReflectance_TrueColor,MODIS_Terra_CorrectedReflectance_TrueColor,Coastlines,Reference_Labels(hidden),Reference_Features(hidden)&t=2017-03-20&z=3&v=638544.5625044382,-490825.29911611415,1687120.5625044382,169654.70088388585
From the size and shape of the floes, I'd bet that those are some of the die-hard MYI boulders which made it through last summer in the Northern Laptev. So long...

(...and thanks for all the fish)

Hi All
This is my first blog on your wonderful site which I have been watching for nearly a year.
Today NASA announced that Greeland and Antarctic are losing 400 gigatons of ice / year. I have just calculated this as giving 2.38 mm / year height increase. Water thermal expansion + glacial and other surface ice would be in addition to this (also aquafier surface pumping). Does this seem a bit high ?

Welcome, Jontenoy. Your profile has been released now, so you can post freely.  I see that you've asked your question in the SLR thread as well. This one is for Arctic images.

I guess I found the creature who is eating all the ice near Svalbard - Worldview, Mar 12 - Mar 13.

That image is addictive.  "Stop," I say, "Stop!  Turn it off.  Unplug it if you have to.  Stop the machine - it has gone too far!  We've lost too much sea ice already."  :'(

The icepacman of the Fram Strait has been active today: 350 km x 325 km chunk of sea ice is now leaving the Central Arctic today (24th March 2017) with large separation gap forming. I doubt that any bigger section of the Arctic Ocean ice cap could get through the gap, but you never know what comes next behind the bend (or more correctly what leaves from behind the bend [of Greenland])... https://worldview.earthdata.nasa.gov/?p=arctic&l=MODIS_Aqua_CorrectedReflectance_TrueColor,MODIS_Terra_CorrectedReflectance_TrueColor,Coastlines,Reference_Labels(hidden),Reference_Features(hidden)&t=2017-03-24&z=3&v=87993.52285053895,-1196593.2128281824,1136569.522850539,-536113.2128281824
