Arctic sea ice / Re: The 2020 melting season

Is it significant to see this much open water only 114 miles from 90N at this point in the season?

Can someone help me out with what I'm looking at here?

While we ponder the length of time until a vaccine is protective enough to safely and widely re-open the economy in some form, consider that for a significant proportion of even the developed world (in this example, the U.S.), it will never be:  “Nearly 14,000 votes and 69.2% of Liz's followers said they will NOT get a COVID-19 vaccine once available.”

Liz Wheeler is from OAN, the “One America News” Network, a conservative, far right-wing news and opinion channel that regularly features pro-Donald Trump stories.  The channel has been noted for promoting falsehoods and conspiracy theories.

And wikipedia.

seeing the word "news" being used to define that organization makes me twitch

Whoever "takes over" should consider ways to amplify the discussions being held here in a manner that is consumable and understandable for a person without as much scientific background as those that are contributing to it. I'd like to see/participate in a project plan around that deliverable.

Uptick in the ensemble AO at CPC.  couple of today's models really biting too.  less displacement, still containing two poles of cold potential temperature, co-rotation, but trending up up up

I'm excited but I don't know why

I'm genuinely curious on the excitement thing. What is about to maybe happen that might be worth getting exciting about?

Reminder; This is all new for me! I'm a complete amateur who's still learning. So always take my analysis with a big bag of salt! Making these videos will surely help me to learn more quickly. Enjoy!
I think they are great, but if it was me I would choose the "Temp" setting, which shows both wind and temperature.
I like the wind setting because it shows the strength of the wind better. But I hear ya! I'll make some with temp setting as well. I would love to add the rain as overlay in those, but I still have to figure out how to do that quickly. I'm using GIMP now as well to make Gifs, so in time I'll figure it out.

Just now I was updating my brain with the basics of weather. This old school educational movie was brilliant!

Edit; WOW! Embedded movies now? :)

Thanks for sharing that video...learned a couple things I didn't know.

A large floe traveled almost 100km between Ellesmere and Axel Heiberg island, chunking off some land attached ice and splitting up after impacts with the shore. I'm curious what gave it that speed? Just to the left, at the inlet, chunks are being pulled into the Beaufort Gyre it seems.

Date start: 15-08 09:30, end 18-08 20:20 UTC
Top speed rough estimate: 0.5m/s

Where do you get these amazing animations from?

Aug 10-16

After 2 days of large drops of the minimum in the Laptev sector, only small changes today. Retreat on the Atlantic side and advance on the Pacific side. Is the melt season starting to stall?

Can someone help me understand what this side by side is comparing?
