5th lowest measured for the date.

Looks like 4th?

Here's one platform focusing on forest monitoring:

It has a google discussion group, here:!forum/globalforestwatch

Thanks everybody for your contributions. For me, these "forums" also underscore the unique nature of ASIF in being driven by contributions from an open community. Maybe it's worth looking more into weather forums that focus on some of these areas?

Good one Charles: "Other Earth" observations, lol.

Given the tremendous value of ASIF in advancing interpretation of earth observation of the Arctic and in communicating the importance of the issue, all on an open/public platform, I have for a while been wondering if similar forums exist for other components of the earth system.

Imagine, for example, if other tipping points from Lenton et al. 2008 had similar forums. ASIF obviously treats several of the cryosphere related. But what about the rest?

Use this thread to post links to relevant public discussion forums on tropical forests, such as the Amazon, oceans, such as the Pacific, or desserts and arid lands, such as the Sahara or Sahel.

Does anyone know where to find HYCOM/CICE forecasts after March 21? It seems the usual page has not updated for some days.

I think the ice down the side of Greenland is gone. I have not seen any there in the last six or so images.

The ice is very much there, check e.g. the daily sentinel mosaic at

JAXA updated to the 19th and were nice enough to provide these images to bring us up to date.
This is for thickness, as I left out the concentration, not being able to see much difference in it. That is probably because of dispersion. If the imagery for thickness is accurate at all, it's mind-blowing to think what a few days of stormy weather can do.
Edit: I have just got to add one more thought; OUCH!

Hi there, first post, fantastic forum, thanks everyone. Just wanted to point out that Wipneus' JAXA volume visual indicates this storm associated drop in thickness very neatly.
