Arctic sea ice / Re: The 2017 melting season
« on: June 21, 2017, 05:42:13 PM »
Neven, you may have stumbled on the way to communicate the melting season and the urgency involved--through the public's stomachs! Hard to resist that! ;) Seriously, you are right that the conditions are worse than last year, and 2016's volume was a near-record.

I found a really enjoyable article about 19th century (and before) literature on the Arctic in this week's New Yorker. It gave me a good historical perspective. Hope it is accessible to everyone:

They said it would be down on June 19th for maintenance, back when they had the extended server trouble last month.

Is there a Nino Index update tomorrow (Monday) or does Labor Day delay that?

Thanks, AbruptSLR, this is very interesting. I guess I was unclear; I was initially asking the question the opposite direction (how a hot year affects CO2 emissions)? I know that the trendline is up for emissions but it varies widely from year to year. I just wondered if increased human emissions in 2014 and (probably) the hottest year on record would make an increase in CO2 over > 3 ppm/year in 2014.

How does CO2 increase per year  correlate with yearly temperature? I assume positively. 1998 seems to have the record at 2.93 ppm and 2002, 2005, 2010,and 2012 are pretty high. What does that mean for 2014, the (supposed) new global record?

Thanks, Deep Octopus. This is a disturbing trend but like the summer Arctic ice season, I have to follow it every day because it is so interesting.

One question I had is that there are 5 other reservior systems on that page. I can't tell how small or big they are, and whether they serve Sao Paulo. Does someone know what the total water amount is? I follow Lake Mead every day too and their website is excellent.

Hi Deep Octopus,

Thanks for your update and link. Good that Cantareira was brought back up to 13%, but of course that means less water in the other reservoirs. Now it's down to 11.5% in a week or two? Unless there is rain, rain, rain coming, 2016 is going to look very bad...

What is the website that you are tracking this? I like to follow these things.

Any update on the reservoirs for Sao Paulo?--the largest one (sorry, forgot the name) was at 3.2% mid-October, but there has been no stories on Google News since Oct. 24th. I wish there was a website with daily numbers (like for California or Lake Mead), but I can't find anything. This is a real crisis, and the water could be gone by the end of November if no rains come.

These numbers are really head-scratching. I see the open water starting in the Laptev and the Beaufort concentration maps, but IJIS/JAXA barely moves down. Not sure what make of it...

Here is the data link:

The historical record is at the bottom of the page.

Hit 397.11 this past week...will update weekly. Will it hit the symbolic 400 ppm this year? The peak is in May.
