First Melting At The North Pole

Some small melt ponds have appeared near the North Pole, about two weeks later than normal. Note that the Sun is already starting to descend towards the horizon, below the summer peak of 23.5º elevation

    Still no melt at Camera #1 location.

    Camera 2 location had rain/mist/drizzle for a couple of days. We’ll see if those ponds enlarge over time.

  2. The snow is too powdery / sparkly for that to be meltwater. I suggest maybe it is seawater coming in through cracks and wetting the snow from underneath. Most freshwater lakes get watery spots like that during warmer weather or if moved / cracked by wind.

    Uh oh. Reggie will short-circuit when he sees the hills in the background…according to him they can’t exist

    Is that the Arctic Joule sitting there? Boy are they off course.

    Slightly OT,
    All us coastal residents need to move to higher ground right now according to models in Potsdam. The ratcheting up of the CAGW rhetoric before the election down under has become a cacophony. Fear of repealing the carbon tax has stirred up the greenies like a fire ants nest.

    I met a model in Potsdam once. Unlike the above models, Helena was very credible.
