Absence of  XX% conclusive  evidence that it is happening is not the same as evidence it is not happening.

Waiting for such effects to hit an arbitrary level of statistical significance before we act means we would be  to far along to halt the changes.

Arctic sea ice / Re: When will the Arctic Go Ice Free?
« on: October 12, 2019, 01:06:46 AM »
… but all we have to do is wait & see (just a few years).
I definitely don't like the "wait & see". I am concerned about passing no-return points. If we look at volume, we lost almost 1/3 on 2000-2009 and almost 2/3 on 2010-2019, against the 1979-2000 average.

That is too much!

The 2007, 2012 and 2019 are outliers when you see NSIDC extent figures, but not with PIOMAS volumes. I also don't like monthly averages on extent. 2016 was a terrible year, but because it had an early refreeze, doesn't look that bad. 2017 was also a terrible year looking at volume the whole year. It was just ok around September.

IMO, 2020-2029 will be pretty bad, even if we only have 2 or 3 years like 2012. We don't need a BOE, if Greenland ice and permafrost accelerate their melt.

P.D. Of course, following the events on the ASIF, I am on the "wait & see". But I am becoming more an activist also.

NSIDC appear to be a bit supportive of a "hiatus" in Arctic Sea Ice Loss.

Here is their spiel about it from Oct 3  https://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/ (Graph also attached)

Quote
Within the overall decline, it is notable that the most recent 13 years, from 2007 to 2019, have shown very little decline (Figure 3b). Both 2007 and 2012 were extreme low extent years, and variability has been high in this period. However, an earlier 13 year period, 1999 to 2012, shows a rate of decline that is more than double the overall rate in the satellite record. This illustrates the challenge of extracting a quantitative rate of decline in a highly variable system like sea ice, and the benefits of looking at decadal, and not year-to-year variations. Our updates to our public analysis tool, Charctic now allows the user to see the decadal average trends as well as each year (Figure 3c).

Who am I, a mere observer to disagree - but I do...

NSIDC should include the author of the monthly analysis. Some times I agree with them. Other times I feel that a denier wrote a statement. Surely there are different people doing this task.

     FWIW, the September 2019 IPCC cryosphere report shows Extent becoming asymptotic at about 10% of the 2000 level around 2070. 
https://report.ipcc.ch/srocc/pdf/SROCC_FinalDraft_FullReport.pdf
     
     Given the length and detail of the IPCC cryosphere report, there is a surprisingly brief discussion of Arctic sea ice trends.  ASIF is a better source than IPCC! (seriously). After a quick search, I found nothing in the IPCC report about ASI volume projections.  Figure 3.3 on page 3-13 is the closest information.  It charts ASI Extent under the RCP scenarios.  In those projections, even the RCP8.5 scenario retains 10% September Extent for 2070-2100. 

      The scientists who donate their hard work to IPCC reports are the experts and I feel like an ungrateful flea telling the dog what to do in critiquing their work.  But my small fevered brain is unable to reconcile the trends charted by Wipneus and Stephan, or that I can see for myself in the data from PIOMAS, with the IPCC statements shown below from page 3-25.  To be blunt, I suspect that the IPCC is under-estimating the severity of the ASI trends.

Same conclusions (on bold, made by me), long time ago. The IPCC is in fact, avoiding the discussion of when the Arctic will be ice free. It is easier to simulate that they are doing their work, at the same time that they respect politicians.

On the other hand, some of them are politicians!

Arctic sea ice / Re: The caa-greenland mega crack
« on: October 08, 2019, 02:34:42 PM »
I am surprised that remnants of the caa-greenland mega crack are still there today. I wonder of the implications that it could have on the 2020 melting season. That is, could be possible to have more mobility of the older ice on 2020, if it is not strongly attached to land? It should be first-year ice what we will have on the mega crack.

Not really. I am interested to see what will happened after October 15th.
Will 2019 become the lowest on record?
It is also interesting that 2016 & 2018 will compete to be the lowest with 2007 and 2012. The true is that the last 3 years (2016-2018) had been too low on winter. Will 2019 end that way?

How are things looking for the September average now with just a few days to go? Which bin is it heading for?
4.25 - 4.50 M km2.
I will calculate the average tomorrow (America's time).
The correct bins are: 4.00 - 4.50 & 4.25 - 4.75 M km2.

Edit:
I already did it. Average daily (not 5-day trailing) September 1st-26th: 4.2704 M km2. At this date, 2019 is even with 2007.
The last daily value (Sept 26th): 4.416 M km2.

A timely point for me to say thank you Geronto and to Juan and to all the data crunchers and plotters on this thread. Immense help in trying to make sense of a confusing end of season.

Hi.

Longtime lurker who has just registered to echo the other posts.

Thank-you so much gerontocrat, Juan and all the other myriad posters who post and analyse the data to help us mere mortals understand what is happening up north.

As a primary school teacher in the UK I try my best to educate the young minds and possible future leaders of our county. Your data and explanations help me provide the evidence of what our civilization is doing to the planet and help shape the thoughts of the next generation.

Just posting to give my thanks... now back to lurking and not cluttering up threads :)

You are welcome [everyone]. I am very happy to be of some help.  :)
Thanks to Neven and others!!! Another melting season has passed. I have also learned a lot on the ASIF.

I was questioning myself about this subject a couple of days ago (looking if NSIDC 2019 Sept average will be greater or lower than 2007). I made the following graph, which starts on August 15th and ends on September 30th.

These are daily values, not 5-day trailing average. Afterward, NSIDC ASI grew 50K and then drop 100K km2.

If you see ADS NIPR, 2019 has been below 2007 almost all September.

Yes. It seems wrong that NSIDC keeps 2019 above 2007. It doesn't match with what we see on ADS NIPR (JAXA), even that we know that NSIDC has less accuracy on their measurement.

Arctic sea ice / Re: The 2019 melting season
« on: September 17, 2019, 01:36:26 PM »
It is interesting to note that there is a pattern to the very bad years of 2007, 2012, 2016, and 2019.

The first "bad" year was 2007. It took five years for 2012 to happen. It took four years for 2016 to happen. It took three years for 2019 to happen.


As far as I remember that's what "be cause" is posting in his signature on a daily base, at least interesting indeed


the art of the ( not so ) subliminal message ? . b.c.
I see more random behavior:
2002 was a bad year (September record versus previous years).
2005 was a bad year  (September record versus previous years).
2006 was worse than in 2005 in must parts of May-August, but not in September.
2007 was a bad year  (September record versus previous years).
2010 was a bad year.
2011 was a bad year (Bremen said that it broke 2007 daily minimum, but it happened at the beginning of September and the freezing season started early, so NSIDC September average doesn't show this low value).
2012 was the terrible year in summer  (All-time September record).
2015-2019 were bad years in winter & spring.
2016 was very bad on the extent and 2017 very bad on volume (2017 is all-time low-volume record on the PIOMAS year average), but not as bad as 2012 at the end of summer.

NSIDC sees 2007 as the second-lowest on extent. I think that this could continue to be the case, once that we have the NSIDC 2019 September average. But other agencies will not agree. ADS NIPR looks for the lowest daily value (not the lowest September average) and AMSR2 has more accuracy than NSIDC measurements. So 2012, 2016 and now 2019 will be the ADS NIPR three lowest years. The same will maybe apply to Bremen (or they may include 2011).   

--> Almost all the above comments are base on the extent because it is the measure that it is easy to follow on a daily basis, but volume tells another story. If you look on a decadal average and compare it to a 1979-2000 base, the Arctic lost almost 1/3 of volume in 2000-2009 and almost 2/3 in 2010-2019. 2007 low value is broken in several years.

More important: On PIOMAS September volume, 2019 is going to be almost as bad as 2012.

Hi everyone:

We are celebrating the Independence of México, so I will not be posting today.
Having fun with friends.  :)

If someone else makes the post. Thanks!

Another reason could be that Greta Thunberg is making the climate crisis a hot topic. The ASIF page views just reflect what people are talking about.

If that is true, I am really glad that people are starting to care about what's going on in the Arctic.
