    There must be records for Barrow Ice going back beyond 2000. Those records going back 100 years or more would be interesting. What year had the earliest breakup and which the latest over that period to time?

    There doesn’t seem to be a correlation between breakup and the final Sept minimum.

    In the greater scheme of things what happens in Barrow is not that important. Unless you live there.
