Arctic sea ice area and extent data
« on: January 09, 2015, 07:03:42 PM »
As 2014 now is history I think it's fitting to have a thread that isn't limited by a certain year. My idea is that this thread will be runned "forever". What's your ideas about that?

IJIS extent (8 January):

12 572 767 km2

Down 9953 km2 from previous day.

Second lowest value for this date.

Edit: I borrowed some of the text data from Jim Pettits post #1135 in the thread "2014 sea ice area and extent data". The extent data from IJIS differs however due to the human factor which happens everyone of us...

Thanks for reminding me to open the 2015 sea ice area and extent data thread, Lord M!  ;D

I prefer having central threads that make it easier to find things again, one for every year or season. But of course, I won't be closing separate threads.
