Yes, certainly Okhotsk :
Still very fickle, that IJIS, eh? Just like last year: lots of century breaks, followed by days of increases.
If extent is dropping while SIA is holding up, does this mean the pack is spreading out? Is this a result of fracturing and refreeze?
Maybe fickle but the graph sure shows a steep downward trend despite the recent slight uptick.http://www.ijis.iarc.uaf.edu/en/home/seaice_extent.htm

IJIS just recorded the biggest May daily drop since 2005, with 177,343 km2 (May 8th). As far as I can tell the biggest drop so far was on May 19th 2008 with 127,188 km2.Of course, this number might be revised tomorrow, but there weren't any revisions for quite a few days now.

As far as I can tell the biggest drop so far was on May 19th 2008 with 127,188 km2.Of course, this number might be revised tomorrow, but there weren't any revisions for quite a few days now.I noticed that. That completes (again assuming no revision) a four-day extent decrease of 357k km2. (Over that same four days, SIA has dropped by just 74k. In fact, SIA just had its greatest one-day increase in nearly a month. But I suspect that area will drop precipitously over the next few days.)
IJIS: Has been growing for the last 2 days: 12,388,281 km2 (May 12, 2013)
Sea ice monitor is still stuck on the 10th of May :-(http://www.ijis.iarc.uaf.edu/cgi-bin/seaice-monitor.cgi?lang=e
Third Update: May 14, 9 a.m. EDTThe sun emitted a third significant solar flare in under 24 hours, peaking at 9:11 p.m. EDT on May 13, 2013. This flare is classified as an X3.2 flare. This is the strongest X-class flare of 2013 so far, surpassing in strength the two X-class flares that occurred earlier in the 24-hour period.The flare was also associated with a coronal mass ejection, or CME. The CME began at 9:30 p.m. EDT and was not Earth-directed. Experimental NASA research models show that the CME left the sun at approximately 1,400 miles per second, which is particularly fast for a CME. The models suggest that it will catch up to the two CMEs associated with the earlier flares. The merged cloud of solar material will pass by the Spitzer spacecraft and may give a glancing blow to the STEREO-B and Epoxi spacecraft. Their mission operators have been notified. If warranted, operators can put spacecraft into safe mode to protect the instruments from solar material.
