Arctic sea ice / Re: The 2019 melting season
« on: August 01, 2019, 05:48:45 PM »
To me it looks like this year's falling even further behind 2012 in terms of finishing with the lowest extent on record. 
Friv,
I thought you were dead. A new record, in my view, depends on the weather. GFS shows a mini cyclone torching the ESS for a few days. That 350k of slush will be gone. A compaction event (like 2007) could put 2019 over the top. I give it 50/50%. The second law is pissed off with all that hot land and warm water surrounding all that ice. Expect to be surprised.

Where did you read this?  Is there a website that tracks albedo?
One of our users, Tealight has built a whole slew of marvelous tools to follow Albedo.

You can track albedo from Topaz4 using Godiva2;

Last year it was based on imported data. I don't know about this year. Look for the data to jump on Mondays, that is when they import data.

Don't know if he's heading to the arctic, but it is my picture of the day.
