Growth Of Multi-Year Ice

In 2008, Mark Serreze incorrectly forecast an ice-free North Pole – based on the fact that it was covered with thin first-year ice. Cryosat shows below that MYI (black line) has grown substantially in extent since then.

PIOMAS continues to show record low volumes of ice, despite all indications to the contrary that the ice is thickening.
