JAXA GLOBAL SEA ICE EXTENT:  18,643,939 KM2 as at 17-Mar-2021

- Extent gain on this day 109k, 59 k more than the average gain on this day (of the last 10 years) of 50k,
- Extent gain from minimum on this date is 2.12 million km2, 0.56 million km2, 35.9% more than the 10 year average gain of 1.56 million km2.
- Extent is at position #12 in the satellite record of which 1 years were in the last century

- 2021 Extent is  0.45 million km2 MORE than 2010's Average
- 2020 Extent is  0.28 million km2 MORE than 2020

On average 17.5% of sea ice gain from minimum to maximum done, and 232 days to maximum

Projections of the Unknown Quantity. (Table JAXA-AA1)

Average remaining sea ice gain (of the last 10 years) would produce a maximum in November 2020 of 25.98 million km2, 2.22 million km2 above the 2016 record low maximum of 23.76 million km2.

I compared the actual JAXA data with the averages of the last decades.
In the Arctic 2021 is 10 days ahead of the 2010s average, in the Antarctic it is 5 days ahead of the 2010s average. This sums up to 10d - 5d = 5 days.
Compared with earlier decades the difference is even higher:
Decade   Arctic   Antarctica  sum
2010s      +10         +5        5 d
2000s      +19         +1       18 d
1990s      +29         +1       28 d
1980s      +39         +5       34 d
This means for the Arctic more insolation and less melting heat needed in the coming months, whereas for the Antarctic less insolation and less freezing heat to be released, but the net effect is much larger in the Arctic than in the Antarctic. Whereas there is a clear trend in the Arctic (greater shift compared to earlier decades) no long-term trend is visible in the seas around Antarctica.
It is too late just to be concerned about Climate Change

JAXA Global sea ice extent data

Trends in global sea ice are currently mostly to do with the recent rise in Antarctic sea ice.
The March monthly average (graph attached) shows the  March '21 average at 18.554 million km2,  12th lowest in the satellite record, 545k km2 above the linear trend, and 450k km2 above March '20.

This is reflected in the strong rise in the 365 day trailing average extent.

JAXA GLOBAL SEA ICE EXTENT:  19,343,429 KM2 as at 01-Apr-2021

- Extent gain on this day 135k, 69 k more than the average gain on this day (of the last 10 years) of 66k,
- Extent gain from minimum on this date is 2.82 million km2, 0.35 million km2, 14.2% more than the 10 year average gain of 2.47 million km2.
- Extent is at position #11 in the satellite record of which 0 years were in the last century

- 2021 Extent is  0.17 million km2 MORE than 2010's Average
- 2020 Extent is  0.48 million km2 MORE than 2020

On average 27.8% of sea ice gain from minimum to maximum done, and 217 days to maximum

Projections of the Unknown Quantity. (Table JAXA-AA1)

Average remaining sea ice gain (of the last 10 years) would produce a maximum in November 2020 of 25.77 million km2, 2.01 million km2 above the 2016 record low maximum of 23.76 million km2.

I compared the actual JAXA data with the averages of the last decades.
In the Arctic 2021 is 13 days ahead of the 2010s average, in the Antarctic it is 2 days ahead of the 2010s average. This sums up to 13d - 2d = 11 days.
Compared with earlier decades the difference is even higher:
Decade   Arctic   Antarctica  sum
2010s      +13         +2       11 d
2000s      +21         - 1       22 d
1990s      +30         ±0       30 d
1980s      +38         +3       35 d
This means for the Arctic more insolation and less melting heat needed in the coming months, whereas for the Antarctic less insolation and less freezing heat to be released, but the net effect is much larger in the Arctic than in the Antarctic. Whereas there is a clear trend in the Arctic (greater shift compared to earlier decades) no long-term trend is visible in the seas around Antarctica.
It is too late just to be concerned about Climate Change

JAXA GLOBAL SEA ICE EXTENT:  20,444,264 KM2 as at 17-Apr-2021

- Extent gain on this day 111k, 33 k more than the average gain on this day (of the last 10 years) of 78k,
- Extent gain from minimum on this date is 3.92 million km2, 0.33 million km2, 9.1% more than the 10 year average gain of 3.59 million km2.
- Extent is at position #12 in the satellite record of which 1 years were in the last century

- 2021 Extent is  0.10 million km2 MORE than 2010's Average
- 2020 Extent is  0.97 million km2 MORE than 2020

On average 40.4% of sea ice gain from minimum to maximum done, and 201 days to maximum

Projections of the Unknown Quantity. (Table JAXA-AA1)

Average remaining sea ice gain (of the last 10 years) would produce a maximum in November 2020 of 25.75 million km2, 1.98 million km2 above the 2016 record low maximum of 23.76 million km2.
