Arctic sea ice / 2020/21 Freezing Season Predictions
« on: September 10, 2020, 04:58:56 PM »
It's that time of year again, almost time for the least exciting but most important part of the ice cycle: freezing season!

I think this year's freezing season is going to be interesting, as the Great Arctic Anti-Cyclone has put a lot of heat in the peripheral waters, particularly on the Siberian side. Might we see a particularly low maximum next year as warm water fails to re-freeze?

Starting this thread before freezing season actually starts, as some people may want to predict things in advance.

Arctic sea ice / 2020 Melting Season Predictions

IMO, this is a low effort, no value added post. Someone should open a prediction thread for the non-science of guessing future weather events.

Your wish is my command!

Anyway, I still stand by my prediction from the start of melt season that this year's melt will be harsh, but not record-breaking. I'm calling a minimum of around 4.0 square megametres extent.

Arctic sea ice / The 2020 Melting Season

Projections for 11 of the last 12 years say the maximum has been reached (14.45 million km2).

92% chance? I like those odds, so I'm calling maximum.

Besides, all the discussion of the upcoming melt in the freezing season thread seems a tad odd to me.
