With all respect, Neven. This metric will appear to be of little consequence. What is decisive is 'winter power' at the one side and summer melt on the other. The first is now, given the late februari weirdness, at par with '15-'16. Very weak. For the second, I agree with others that a sudden anomalously warm summer will roll the dice...

I am voting for the average - March 15. Note that no year actually finished on that average date.
I am voting for that date as it gives me a few days to change the spreadsheet from min-to-max to max-to-min. The cold here in the UK is making my brain cells slow down. I do hope the weather gods are listening. Fat chance.

JAXA Maximum has become a poll SIE minimum  (please delete when corrected?)

That's funny, I was afraid I was going to get that wrong, and I did it anyway. Thanks for the catch.

Sorry, werther, for writing minimum instead of maximum in the poll question. This is just a fun poll, also to pre-empt discussions about when to open the 2018 melting season thread. Which is an annual thing.

Greetings from snowy SW England. Attached, as requested.
During 1990-2017, the median and the mean were both day 68, which in a non-leap year is March 9th. So I'm going for the 8-10 bin.

I was delighted to read somewhere on these threads that "Spring starts on March 1".  In the good ol' U.S. of A., spring legally starts on the spring equinox.  I've thought this odd for decades, maybe influenced by my time in God's Own (N.Z.).  In New Hampshire (NH), gardeners put freeze intolerant seedlings in the ground on Memorial Day weekend (end of May) (when I lived there 20+ years ago).  In north Florida, spring comes, um, early.  (My bananas didn't freeze one winter, but have all others.) 

So being an American, despite my 'odd thoughts', lets start the melting season on the NH (Northern Hemisphere this time) spring equinox.  And while we're at it, lets start the freezing season on the NH summer solstice.  Maybe this way we'll get more ice (area, extend and volume) and put an end to global warming by edict!   ;D 8) ::) :P

For fun, I voted with my new-found political orientation (March 20 = equinox where I live).
Arctic ice is healthy for children and other living things.

So far it hasn't crossed the 'lowest for that date' line.  The highest lowest for that date appears to be day 61.

30 years ago here in Mass (eastern) I planted on Memorial Day, but I've been planting roughly May Day ever since, and never killed a plant from a late frost -- and at first I thought I was taking a chance.  Of course, in 78 they'd have been buried under a meter of snow....

I am voting for March 8-10.

I think that the maximum could happen in that range. But even if it doesn't, I am eager to start the melting season thread. So, I vote to start it on March 8th.   ;D
Which is the best answer to Sep-2012 ASI lost (compared to 1979-2000)?
50% [NSIDC Extent] or
73% [PIOMAS Volume]

Volume is harder to measure than extent, but 3-dimensional space is real, 2D's hide ~50% thickness gone.
-> IPCC/NSIDC trends [based on extent] underestimate the real speed of ASI lost.

I'm expecting relatively rapid rise over the next  few days followed by slow decline so I  plumped for the middle of the month 11-13th for the Max

However if its the date of the opening of the melt season thread that  could depend when the extent has dropped enough to  not go back up and would not be until the end of the Month.

In my  view the melt season thread should start on March 1, it;s the first day of Spring for most of us and its also  St David's day.

Mar2-4. Extent will struggle to recover from losses in Labrador, Bering/Chukchi and Okhotsk over the next few days.

March 1st, of course, was higher than 2nd or 3rd, but still your guess would be the closest if there isn't much of a rise yet to happen. I'd now place even odds on that happening, with the other outcome spread out amongst all the other bins, so I've moved my vote to the same bin as you.

I'm thinking that 2018 will see a late maximum, then a 2012-like plunge to a record minimum.

I am with you on date (Polar Vortex collapse, -ve NAO etc), but am too much of a wimp to venture a guess at the minimum.

Graph update. 2018 is sticking close to 2017 and 2015, which is the lowest-year-for-the-day until day 75 (March 16).

I agree with the late maximum but I'm not so sure about the rest. Mid range global weather models indicate conditions for marginal continuing refreeze so I feel like somewhere in the middle of March is likely. We have such anomalously high snow-water equivalent that I naively think that NH snow albedo alongside ENSO conditions will prevent a catastrophic melt season. However, I have no idea what's in store underwater or from synoptic scale atmospheric dynamics in the summer.

Will it be a late max or a long plateau with a technical max somewhere in it?

A Sunny Summer means a certain record minimum, but I'm wondering if a cloudy Summer precludes a record, or if it is still possible.  Given the state of the ice I wouldn't be surprised at a cold Summer and a complete melt-out.

Bering Sea ice extent growth from @NSIDC  data has stalled due to a series of storms in the region; as of March  03 extent only 38% of 1981-2010 median and  lower than any day between  Jan 17 and Apr 20, 1979-2017.

"The max has already happened," is a pretty strong hint. I might even call it a claim!  :D

Thanks Neven. So...
A drop yesterday as well via ADS but no fun in going for that. The SSW already had it's glory days and since 2016 had a late peak on the 22:nd and 2015 had a late peak on the 26:th, I'll be the crazy here and go for the date Neven denied.  ;D

Edit; oh, thought I would be alone in that bin.  :(

As a matter of principle I usually vote when polls open, and then refuse to change my vote with new data, as it doesn't feel like fair sport. But principles are made to be broken, and here I am, a proud new member of the first bin.

I don't know how really to predict the day of the minimum. One just have to throw a coin or choose a random option. In terms of starting the melting season I prefer to wait until the equinox

Having just posted the latest JAXA data and looked at the freezing thread, I am now totally convinced that maximum will be sometime between March 1st and March 31st.

Hautbois's updated chart.

Now have 11 people who have joined me.  Still a few hours to change your vote.  Think of it now as calling it.  Not predicting it.

Tell me.  Have we reached the max?  You know what I, and 11 other posters think.

Looks like @ 13.75, which is the center of the curve for the Maximum Poll.

Jaxa @ 13.63 (-0.06) for 4th consecutive day of losses. Now -0.13 from the March 1st maximum.

You got it!  ;)
Feeling I am cheating, but I change my vote.
March 1st the new lowest maximum, with 13.76M km2.
Still possible to break, but difficult, as the time passes.

Edit: No March 1st Option, so March 2nd will be...  :D

Which is the best answer to Sep-2012 ASI lost (compared to 1979-2000)?
50% [NSIDC Extent] or
73% [PIOMAS Volume]

Volume is harder to measure than extent, but 3-dimensional space is real, 2D's hide ~50% thickness gone.
-> IPCC/NSIDC trends [based on extent] underestimate the real speed of ASI lost.

More than a vote, I made a wish.

You have to work with what you have.  13 now the official number in the first bin.  Maybe we can get Neven to extend the first bin to 3/1. After all, that was the day he started the poll.

ADS reports the two day average, the following day. Extending the first bin to include March 1, would also be impossible considering the thread title(s).  :)

Actually it's quite ironic if the max was already in on the day the poll was opened.  :o

If the max was indeed reached on March 1st, it looks like no one has won.  ;D ;)

PS I'm amazed...
