Summer cyclone chewing up Canada’s Arctic sea ice
July 25, 2013
Back when the sea was thick and lasted for years, cyclones tended to spread the ice out and actually increase its extent, said Julienne Stroeve of the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boulder, Colo. Now, when ice gets spread out, it simply breaks up and disappears.
“As our ice cover has thinned, some of our old rules are changing,” said Stroeve.
Looking at the graph below I am having a tough time locating the disappearing part.
Never any follow up. They just move on to their next soon to be failed prediction.
