Arctic sea ice / Re: The 2017 melting season

Sorry, if I'm interrupting the current discussion. Just posting an animation of the last two weeks with some slowmotion. In my opinion now you can see very well, what are clouds and what is SI. If the trend we see continues, the next two weeks could definitely wreck the ice.
This is perhaps the most fascinating animation I've ever seen on this forum. The motions and melting are beautifully clear and the separation of ice and clouds is, as advertised, excellent.

I mean, I know about the 'Consequences' section of 'AGW in general', but where in that is the QBO discussion?

And as long as I'm asking...A-Team's #2355 post contains this: 'The remarkable Greenland melt event of 12 July 12 even melted dry facies at Summit Station, 3216 m).' What is/are dry facies? I found references to 'dry snow facies' with Google, but the definition I find for 'facies' is 'the character of a rock expressed by its formation, composition, and fossil content', and I don't see where dry snow comes into that. Does it just mean 'an area covered by dry snow'?

Perhaps it should also be noted that we just witnessed a flip in the QBO that has never been seen before (thread over in 'consequences').

Where's that?

Latest update with the NSIDC extent has resulted in a new extent high for 2016 using the 5 day rolling average.  The value to the 19th is 14,481,800km2, compared to the previous high of 14,477,600km2 set back on March 2nd.

I've asked this before, but...can we really know the sea ice extent to six significant figures?
What are the chances that this new high is really a new high? Since it's a rolling average I imagine the trend is more meaningful than daily values, but still.

Thank cod he's gone! i almost gave up reading the posts of real experts.

Amen! The Arteest who should not be named was skippable but he was riling up the sensible posters. Actually, he seemed to mix some useful stuff with the self-congratulation at first, but when he named a gap after himself I decided he was just trouble.
