Ice Growth In The Arctic Since Yesterday

Green shows areas of ice gain since yesterday. Red shows regions of ice loss. Cold temperatures and a cyclone in the western Arctic have essentially halted ice extent loss.

    Is there a colorblind friendly graph you can point me to?


    • Chewster says:

      This one is from Cryosphere Today and they usually update it daily!
      Those seeking to traverse the elusive N.W. Passage this year may have a rough go of it πŸ˜‰

    The big dot in the middle is a polar bear orgy. (You don’t want to see it.)

  3. Fred from Canuckistan says:

    Again, so much ice, so few row boats.

    Wonder what ever happened to our ever so earnest and Greenie do gooders? Maybe they needed to make some money to pay their debts and they have gone to work at the Oil Sands.

    Gaia would be most pleased.

  4. glenncz says:

    I was up in Calgary last year skiing and was with some oil sand people that were greenies and seemed to have no problem working in the oil sands. But they still “cared” about the problem and wanted someone/something bigger than themselves to fix it.

    • geran says:

      Were they able to define what the “problem” was?

      • Eric Simpson says:

        “If Canada proceeds [with its tar sands oil development]… ice sheets would accelerate out of control. Sea levels would rise and destroy coastal cities. Global temperatures would become intolerable. Twenty to 50 percent of the planet’s species would be driven to extinction.” -James Hansen, 2012
        Wow, these greenies really put there own personal interest above that, huh. Of course, Gore does the opposite, by showing charity to the owners of a soon to be deluged beachside CA mansion by buying it off them for $9 million. Very nice of Gore.

      • Eric Simpson says:

        Of course we also got this:
        “Entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000. Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of eco-refugees, threatening political chaos.” -Noel Brown, ex UNEP Director, 1989
        And this:
        β€œ[in twenty years (2008)] the West Side Highway (and thus much of Manhattan) will be under water.” -James Hansen, 1988, NASA

  5. Anto says:

    And yet, no right turn in the anomaly maps so far…

    • Dmh says:

      DMI shows 2014 and 2013 as nearly identical in the last few days,
      15% concentration

      and 30%

      Last year the ice extent nearly halted around July 20th and the plateau continued for nearly a week, but only the 15% graph shows it clearly.

    • Chewster says:

      This is two days behind, but a right turn is in the making:

  6. Steve says:

    I don’t know if you have seen these images but they are updated every 3 hours and the graphic is excellent! Only works for me in google Chrome, not IE.Enjoy:,88.95,635
    PS: Has a lot of changable parameters down the bottom left corner too.

  7. Emanuelle Goldstein says:

    Interesting pictures of summer snow in Chelyabinsk, Russia on July 12th.

  8. Andy says:

    Steve, nearly 1000 Manhattens melted away yesterday, how can you say “essentially halted” ?


  9. Jussi says:

    It is melting.
    From 11th to 12th -90,000 km2
    From 12th to 13th -50,000 km2
    From 13th to 14th -75,000 km2
    Actually tracking years 2007 and 2014.

    • stewart pid says:

      It is a very good thing that 2014 is tracking 2014 … we are all going to die of GLO-BULL warming but the last thing we need is a tear in the space time continuum so that we can die twice πŸ˜‰
      Groundhog Day!
