The 2024 Antarctic Freezing Season
« on: March 11, 2024, 01:32:04 AM »
Per discussion in the melting season thread, here is the new freezing discussion page since Antarctic sea ice is off to the races for the refreeze. I’m personally very interested whether the initial recovery momentum holds on, or if these sort of bursts post-minimum are more a function of greater areas of cooling open water in pole-proximal seas. I’m also hoping that we might get some publications sooner than later providing insight into some of the recent melt season action down south.

A large proportion of Antarctic sea ice gains comes from the Ross Sea. At the moment looks like it may be more than "a function of greater areas of cooling open water in pole-proximal seas".

In the Crozet islands which are sort of halfway between Antarctica and Madagascar.

...which might therefore better be transferred into the "heat wave" or "extreme temperatures" thread ?

Too difficult to move posts across moderator jurisdictions. Will leave it be, but to all please avoid off topic posts.
