interesting optical illusion, looks like a huge incoming tsunami :-)

melting is still approximately 1 month ahead of other years.

would make a nice image for real life rorschach tests :-)

I felt bad once leaving a jigsaw for my parents to do: so I glued the finished product to a canvas... well: it's half finished...with missing pieces and a few random ones yet to be glued in a big gap!

I like it anyway!

first i though: where's that ice coming from a those temps ?

but it's not an ice floe, it's that cloud that is mirroring in the water that is flat like a mirror :-)

I was just looking at that self-same thing on Worldview, wondering if I should toss it up. 

Thank you for doing so.

Are the folk caught gathering on the beach by the Barrow webcam looking at a polar bear.... or is it just an ice floe.... or, looking closely, could it be two bears?

screen shot from Polar View.  I presume this is brash ice ("Accumulations of floating ice made up of fragments not more than 2 meters across, the wreckage of other forms of ice.") in the Atlantic sector. (1) Red line is 82oN. (2) Cross lines are 82oN and 40oE and shows ice cap edge.

Yamal Peninsula




"Bubbles of gas have created wobbly waterbed-like patches of ground in the Yamal Peninsula after unseasonably high temperatures sparked bizarre underfoot conditions.
The fun-looking patches of bubbling land were discovered by researchers Alexander Sokolov and Dorothee Ehrich. Some 15 examples of the phenomena were discovered in the area, according to The Siberian Times.
When the patches were punctured, methane and carbon dioxide gases were released, according to the pair. The researchers theorize that unusually high temperatures in the area may have caused permafrost to thaw, releasing gases and forming the bubbles."

the remains of "big block" still a decent sized chunk of ice and probably one of the largest distinct blocks in the arctic today.

Weird ring pattern on some ice on an island east of Zachariae Isstrøm. Maybe some geologist or biologist can explain the growth pattern  ;)
Best visible after zooming in a little.

Similar patterns are frequently seen in Icelandic glaciers, where the black lines are layers of volcanic ash being exposed as older ice melts away.

Perhaps the image shows layers of windborne ash and dust that deposits annually on top of each winters snowfall?

The glacier on the image seems to be disappearing fast, the only "fresh" ice being in a small area at the very top.

Hanna Shoal was visible this spring in some of my animations in the Home Brew thread causing open water by blocking the large ice floes that moved with the extended Beaufort Gyre. Now the floes have turned to rubble, but the grounded ice is still there, visible as a bright sport in the Chukchi Sea.

Must click to run the animation.

A paragraph from the PEW Charitable Trust's Obama Administration Protects Areas of the Arctic Ocean from Oil, Gas Development article:
Hanna Shoal Area
Hanna Shoal, in waters about 100 miles northwest of the northernmost tip of Alaska, rises from the surrounding seafloor to about 65 feet below the surface. About 30 miles wide, the shoal traps and anchors winter sea ice. The shallow shelf diverts warm water flowing from the Bering Strait farther north, allowing sea ice floes to its south to endure longer into the summer. Polynyas, or persistent areas of open water, are found between Hanna Shoal and the coast of Alaska and are important for marine life in winter and spring. Walruses and bearded seals feed on the many seafloor animals on Hanna Shoal, and recent satellite-tracking data demonstrate the shoal’s importance for walrus foraging and resting, especially during summer. Other species that migrate through or are found on Hanna Shoal include ringed and ribbon seals, polar bears, and beluga and bowhead whales.
Arctic ice is healthy for children and other living things.

Perfectly normal conditions for O-Buoy 14.  I'm sure all that white stuff blowing around is snow and not sea spray.

Probably just as well the PBear cannot read the papers, else she would be underneath that thing jamming ice into the cooling inlets, stopping the mains and aux, letting the bilge pumps fuze and gratefully watching the whole great greenhouse gas emitting monstrosity and all it contains slip promptly beneath the waves never to return.

Cause and effect, all in the same pix.  Sad.  We're a bunch of cretins aren't we (present company accepted, of course!)?
