JAXA ANTARCTIC SEA ICE EXTENT - MONTHLY AVERAGES

being in isolation means some tidying up is possible.

Here are monthly averages for Jan, Feb, March 1979-2020, with deviations from the linear trend.

Note:-
Al graphs show...
- the R2 value is vanishingly small,
- the linear trend is a miniscule annual increase,
- the deviations from the linear trend (both +ve & -ve) get greater as the years go by.

So what is one supposed to make of that?
