The Polar Ocean Challenge successfully completed their quest to sail the North East Passage and North West Passage in one season.  The North West Passage was completed in an astonishing 14 days due to the fact that it was almost totally ice free.  They encountered ice only twice in their 1800 mile NW Passage part of the voyage.  This highlights an extraordinary loss of sea ice in the Arctic in the 30 years that David Hempleman-Adams has been coming to the area. He said, ‘ whilst we are all delighted to have succeeded, it is extremely worrying to see this lack of ice so starkly ‘ The objective of the expedition was to raise awareness of the change in the fragile climate in the Arctic. They left Lancaster Sound at the end of the NW Passage at 19.18 UTC on 12th September and are headed for Greenland.


Here is one of the last images of ice, in Lancaster Sound, 11th Sept, that the Northabout encountered.

Pretty patterns in the new ice forming at the western entrance to McClure Strait:

One wonders whether the crew of this Chinese flagged vessel gets shore-leave at Port of Barrow Ak?


I thought it looked like the Korean icebreaker Araon:

they perhaps want a warmer climate up there and try to support warming with a bit of heating energy blowing out for nothing LOL with a prise of seriousness. what a horrible example to permanently leave doors open during the heating season ( probably 12 months up there )

It's a hobby of mine to watch Barrow. This guy has his mud door open for about 3/4 of the year ( swear it's true !!! ). I also like to watch the grass grow in Barrow because I think it's a very quick and easy way to see if they're having a sunny, warm year. This year the grass didn't get very green, not because it wasn't warm enough but because of the lack of sunlight. Clouds make a huge difference and you see it not just the ice, but in the grass and wildlife

I found it poignant that Dr Hamilton was from Dundee, a city with an outstanding history of polar exploration and exploit. He certainly did that heritage proud.

Here is The Courier, the leading paper in Dundee:

I've been reading this forum (in lurk mode) for a long time, but only registered today.  I'd just downloaded PhotoScan on my phone and pulled out some old photos and I came across this one of me standing on ice floes at Prudhoe Bay in Alaska (I think the date is around June 25th in either 1997 or 1998) - it's hard to tell from Worldview but would there still have been ice that close to shore in June 2016?

Nice image, Cate!

It was taken by Patty Waymire and published in a National Geographic feature on climate change:
http://yourshot.nationalgeographic.com/stories/climate-change-focus/

"A solitary bear sits on the edge of one of the Barter Islands."

Barter Island (singular, according to Wikipedia) is on the Arctic Coast of Alaska:

Nice photo, Cate.

Here's a slightly mad smiley of 10hPa winds today. I guess these are pretty normal situations when the seasons change, but the news item should be the season change is somewhat late on large areas on NH. (to Stupid Questions section, isn't this the Upper Stratosphere Night Jet forming?)

This fall the stratosphere has been hammered by both planetary waves #1 and #2. The stratospheric polar vortex split at the end of October and has been displaced from the pole by wave #1 activity for several weeks. I have been watching the stratosphere for several years so I don't know what's normal based on personal observation but papers and web sites by stratospheric experts I have read tell me that this is anything but normal.

The stratosphere has warmed not just at 10 mb but also down to 70mb. -46C at Barrow at 70mb is outrageously hot, especially when you consider the what the potential temperature is. These temperatures are far warmer than the tropics or normal summer temperatures for Barrow at 70mb. This heat is caused by waves breaking into the stratosphere from the troposphere. The slow rising up of warm air from the troposphere to the stratosphere in the tropics over Indonesia produces stratospheric temperatures of negative 80. The lack of sea ice over the Barents and Kara seas is interacting with the atmospheric circulation to displace the stratospheric polar vortex towards Siberia.

Below is a polar image from Yesterday from 'Wokingham Weather' here in the UK;

http://www.woksat.info/wos.html

It highlights just how messed up the pack is? It looks as though a Crackopalypse event has already ripped through the pack ( I know it hasn't) . It set me wondering just how much a Full Moon Tidal Bulge would impact such ice? Will it 'snap' the connections between floes further weakening the bond each month making the 'grenade/choc bar' pack easier to disrupt?

From HYCOM, we have an image of the green Arctic monster - a GAM, not to be confused with a GAC.  Complete with a blue eye, small dark blue tongue and horn on its snout.  Is that a red and yellow scarf around its head and neck? (it is cold out there).  The rest of the GAM is obviously hiding beneath Greenland and the CAA.
Arctic ice is healthy for children and other living things.

OK...it's not the Arctic but it's still one very cool picture.....Lake Charlevoix, Michigan. The man is standing on 2 to 2 1/2 inches of ice that formed on two successive, wind free days of 6F weather. The water is six feet deep.

sun is up in the kara sea as per these days (depending on where exactly )

why is that worth to mention? because half of the kara is black water and if that remains like that for another short time we shall have a significantly increased energy input through insolation (reduced albedo) compared to any or at least most previous years

a few guys and pals up there in barrows have certainly been celebrating the return of mother sun by the 22nd of January. :-)

curious if and when o-buoy 14 will resume service or whether we shall get more buoys this year, albeit not probable considering the current policy in the US and the economical problems elsewhere will make funding not easy.

hope dies the last :-)

exactly you got it all right, they were meant as a showcase to illustrate the difference between Kara ice covered or with open water at very low sun agle.

Recently there has been a particularly good display of Polar Stratospheric Clouds, photographed above.

From http://spaceweather.com/

"These clouds are newsworthy because normally the stratosphere has no clouds at all. Home to the ozone layer, the stratosphere is arid and almost always transparent. Yet, Stålnacke says, "we've been seeing stratospheric clouds very often this winter and last."

On the ground, this behemoth has produced 80-year record snowfall in Iceland with 51 cm snowfall in one single event. This represents a substantial latent heat transfer and on sea ice it produces heat and insulation from cold once skies clear. It is just 4 cm below all-time record event in January 1937, 80 years and 1 month ago(!): http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/article/39104230/iceland-gets-record-breaking-snowfall-and-the-pictures-are-amazing  I suppose these are my pictures for the day..!  :o

I zoomed out a bit from that previous picture and wemt forward a day, and found a wave of cloud engulfing Greenland. I've turned it over to make it look more effective.

And for the above - for downloading just the audio from youtube (and one thumbnail image) and converting to mp3

works quite well in linux and BSD if you have an up to date youtube-dl

Spotted on the pack ice north of Twillingate, Newfoundland, yesterday. A big bear, in good condition. Wonderful sight.

Polar bears are not unusual on the NE coast of Newfoundland this time of year. This chap would be following the seal herds, which are whelping on the pack ice. Sometimes they do come ashore and are stranded if the ice moves off. Very young or old bears are the most dangerous, as they are often hungry. Wildlife officials will transport stranded bears back out to the ice edge, if possible.
