    There is an awful lot of extra ice over last year it has to be said. That will form a good base for multiyear ice next year, but how thick is it? Would be interesting to know.

    Only 12 months to wait πŸ™‚

    Looking at the JAXA site, ice extents on this date, Oct 1, in the Western Arctic (i.e. Beaufort, Chukchi, E. Sib. seas) are above those from any in the last ten years, except for 2004, which looks to be close to the same. JAXA’s overlays only go back to 2002.
