    NSIDC and AMSR2 (University of Bremen) both use 15% concentration for their data. The CT numbers are much lower than NSIDC/AMSR2 – eg 1993 was above 2Mkm^2 in those datasets.

    What criterion does cryosphere today use for area?

    Sunny and balmy in tropical Antarctica today: McMurdo 33 deg F; Amundsen Scott -50 F
    Hasn’t cracked freezing this February at McMurdo.
    The high temperature for the season at 90 degrees South was -8 deg F (back in January).
