Green shows areas of ice gain since 2007. Brown shows deficiencies below the 1979-2000 mean. Pink shows areas where there was more ice in 2007.
There is very little year over year variation the rest of the winter (except in John Holdren’s fantasy world) because the Arctic Ocean is basically full of ice. NSIDC shows a little more ice than last winter.
DMI shows more ice than 2006, 2007 or 2009.
Ice extent growth will be much slower the rest of the winter – because you can’t grow sea ice on land.
