Two more days and everything will be back to normal again.

Right?
Normal?
Well, it seems that the new normal is being the lowest (or second lowest) and out of the twice standard deviation range [which statistically, it is not normal].

Antarctica / Re: What's new in Antarctica ?

I think that the ozone hole is related to Antarctica, so maybe the best topic for this post is this one.

Mysterious spike of ozone-destroying chemical is traced to east China
Quote
A troubling spike in emissions of a globally banned chemical that damages the Earth’s protective ozone layer has been traced to two provinces in eastern China, according to a study published Wednesday that has alarmed scientists who monitor the planet’s atmosphere.
The study, published in the journal Nature, comes one year after another report revealed that air samples had shown a startling excess of a type of chlorofluorocarbon known as trichlorofluoromethane, or CFC-11, since 2012.
This manufactured chemical, once widely used to blow polyurethane into a rigid insulating foam, leaks into the air and destroys ozone molecules in the upper atmosphere. The ozone layer is critical to life, limiting the amount of harmful ultraviolet solar radiation that reaches the planet’s surface. CFC-11 is also a potent greenhouse gas, with roughly 4,750 times the heat-trapping potential of carbon dioxide.

We are approaching the time in which 2012 ASI dropped 1.13 million km2 in 9 days (an average of 125.5K km2/day).

Trying to know what it happened, it is always a great source Neven's ASI Blog.

Hope things are better for you today, Juan  :-*

I excuse myself because I expressed myself so badly. Pollution has been terrible in central Mexico, but I was only taking about been out for one or maybe a couple of days. I was feeling pretty bad, so I was not going to post yesterday night.
Things are fine (as fine as it can be, given that we have lost almost 2/3 of ASI volume, measuring 2010-18 versus 1979-2000 and we have also local pollution). But I hope to be posting here for several years. I am JAXA addicted, so I usually cannot go to bed without looking the new data.

Thanks for been concerned and for your good wishes…  :)

Losing Juan and his daily updates from Mexico due to air pollution, would be a tragedy in itself.  Having not heard from Terry in Canada for a while, may also be related to adverse life conditions in those tracts. Please do not let this blog clientel turn into a death society/community, which voluntarily exposes itself to all kinds of hostile climates, adverse air pollution incidents and climate change science denier's shootouts.

NSIDC NT sea ice extent and area in the Arctic Basin (you know what I mean) are now both below anything previously on the 8th of May.
If we look at JAXA values, we could think that 2019 has lost the lowest values leadership against 2016. But it is interesting the Wipneus post. Looking at the Arctic Basin (Beaufort, Chukchi, ESS, Laptev and Cental Basin), 2019 is lower than 2016.

We will have to wait a couple of weeks at least, to see how 2019 develops.

"Trump administration pushed to strip mention of climate change from Arctic policy statement"
Quote
The Trump administration sought to remove references to climate change from an international statement on Arctic policy that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is expected to endorse next week, leading to sometimes testy negotiations over how much to emphasize an issue considered a crisis for the region.

The Arctic Council declaration is an affirmation of goals and principles among the eight Arctic nations, which meet every two years. The Trump administration’s position, at least initially, threatened a standoff in which the United States would not sign onto a statement that included climate discussion and other members would not agree to a version that left it out, according to senior diplomats and others familiar with the discussions.

The administration objected to language that, while nonbinding, could be read as a collective commitment to address the effects of climate change in the Arctic, diplomats said. One official familiar with the preparations for this year’s meeting said that at meetings last month, the United States “indicated its resistance to any mention of climate change whatsoever.”

Emperor Akihito of Japan abdicated on 30 April 2019,[1] the first Japanese Emperor to do so since 1817. This marked the end of the Heisei era and the inception of the Reiwa era, and will precipitate numerous festivities leading up to the accession of his successor, Emperor Naruhito.[2] The enthronement ceremony will likely happen on 22 October 2019.[3] Akihito's younger son, Prince Akishino, is his brother's heir presumptive.

Consequences / Re: World of 2030
« on: April 29, 2019, 06:10:58 PM »
Sea level rises to be about 3cm higher than now.  Even under the most alarmist predictions of ice sheet collapse unlikely to be more than 5cm.
I think that must of the scientists didn't saw coming the Arctic sea ice melt that we had in the last 19 years. There was an acceleration that was hard to predict. Other scientists saw this acceleration and they forecast it will continue. It hasn’t happened after 2012 and I don’t know if it will happen or not, but it is not important to me if it doesn’t happen.
The Oceans are trapping 90% of the heat and they are already melting the ice on Greenland and Antarctica (OMG = “Oh! My God” = “Oceans Melting Greenland”). From my point of view, this will be one of the important events on the next 30 years (including 2030, of course).
There is now an acceleration on sea level rise. We had 43 mm (4.3 cm) of sea level rise in the last ten years and I expect maybe the double for 2019-2030. That will make humanity understand that global warming is real. We will see changes not as far as the poles, but changes on the coastal cities, like is already happening on coastal cities in Florida.

Edit:
So what do I expect for 2030? Global consciousness on the importance of Anthropogenic Global Warming. I hope this will happen on 2019, though!

"NASA’s new carbon observatory is set for launch despite Trump’s efforts to ax it"
Quote
Trump slashed funding for the Orbiting Carbon Observatory 3 and four other Earth science missions in his proposed spending plan for the 2018 fiscal year, citing “budget constraints” and “higher priorities within Science.” His budget for fiscal year 2019 tried to defund them again.
In both cases, Congress decided to keep the OCO-3 mission going anyway. Now it is set to launch as soon as Tuesday.

How is OCO-3 different than OCO-2?
The main purpose of OCO-3 is to make sure we have a continuous record of carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere, but we are adding some new capabilities. One of those is to take a snapshot of carbon levels over an area of 50 miles by 50 miles. This will feed a bunch of science investigations of emission hot spots, like cities or volcanoes.
We can also look at how plant activity changes over the course of a day, which is something OCO-2 could not do.

Not really on topic, but it has been discussed here.

No, they are still true -- individually the GFS is fairly useless, but when GFS + CMC are in agreement with the EURO, it is a sign of consensus and usually means a higher likelihood of verification. The EURO blew up the PAC ridge bigly tonight as well, although it doesn't merge the blocks quite as impressively as the 12z run did.

It was October 2012 when the European weather prediction model beat its American counterpart in forecasting Hurricane Sandy’s hard left turn into the U.S. coastline. What scientists had known for years — that the European forecast model was superior to the American — caught the attention of the U.S. public and Congress.
Since then, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, with funding support from Congress, has worked intensely to improve the American model. It has boosted its computing power, improved the way it brings in data, and enhanced how it simulates weather systems at small scales. Yet, more than six years later, it still trails the European model in overall accuracy.
...
As part of its 2020 budget request, to the tune of $15 million, NOAA has proposed the establishment of the Earth Prediction Innovation Center (EPIC), which it says “will advance U.S. weather modeling and reclaim international leadership in the area of numerical weather prediction.”

Abstract
We reconstruct the mass balance of the Greenland Ice Sheet using a comprehensive survey of thickness, surface elevation, velocity, and surface mass balance (SMB) of 260 glaciers from 1972 to 2018. We calculate mass discharge, D, into the ocean directly for 107 glaciers (85% of D) and indirectly for 110 glaciers (15%) using velocity-scaled reference fluxes. The decadal mass balance switched from a mass gain of +47 ± 21 Gt/y in 1972–1980 to a loss of 51 ± 17 Gt/y in 1980–1990. The mass loss increased from 41 ± 17 Gt/y in 1990–2000, to 187 ± 17 Gt/y in 2000–2010, to 286 ± 20 Gt/y in 2010–2018, or sixfold since the 1980s, or 80 ± 6 Gt/y per decade, on average. The acceleration in mass loss switched from positive in 2000–2010 to negative in 2010–2018 due to a series of cold summers, which illustrates the difficulty of extrapolating short records into longer-term trends. Cumulated since 1972, the largest contributions to global sea level rise are from northwest (4.4 ± 0.2 mm), southeast (3.0 ± 0.3 mm), and central west (2.0 ± 0.2 mm) Greenland, with a total 13.7 ± 1.1 mm for the ice sheet. The mass loss is controlled at 66 ± 8% by glacier dynamics (9.1 mm) and 34 ± 8% by SMB (4.6 mm). Even in years of high SMB, enhanced glacier discharge has remained sufficiently high above equilibrium to maintain an annual mass loss every year since 1998.

Will 2019 stay as the lowest on record for the whole April?
Or will 2016 become the lowest on record on the following days?
