Arctic sea ice / Re: 2019 sea ice area and extent data
« on: November 03, 2019, 07:37:51 PM »
Can someone post or give a link to NSIDC daily extent numbers? (not 5 day average)
Go to.....
https://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/sea-ice-tools/

page-down once or twice to the spreadsheet options.

choose optiom 1 - All daily (single day and five-day trailing average) extent values in one file, updated daily (Sea_Ice_Index_Daily_Extent_G02135_v3.0.xlsx)

The file has one day and 5 day for Arctic & Antarctic

Any spreadsheet programme (including rubbish like Google Sheets and good freebies like LibreOffice) will open it.

Arctic sea ice / Re: The 2019 melting season

@aperson
It's not a denialist mistake to be wrong. Everybody is wrong sometimes with their predictions. It's just a mistake. What do we call people who voted for BOE option THIS YEAR, during this melting season. Or do you think that was more realistic than weatherdude's prediction. They were just wronglike him. That is it. No conspiracies or hidden meanings behind every false prediction. Some are more realistic, some are less.

Hi colchonero, I agree with you. Regardless, I don't think you understand the context for this specific poster. They post denialist rhetoric on other forums like americanwx and then disappear whenever SIE or SIA goes back to low values. They seem to have registered here to do the same.

I agree with making falsifiable predictions and verifying them, in fact I have one coming up in just a few days that may bust that I will be posting about! It is not his prediction I have a problem with, it is his hubris: "Despite all of the hyperbole and wish casting, 2019 will not be in the top 3 lowest sea ice minimums on record in area or extent."

And note that this is not the first time this specific user has done this on this forum or elsewhere. Without this surrounding context I would have not been so judgmental.
