  •  Most of that multi year ice went mobile this Feb (1+ / 0-)

    FOoW, I'm sure you were keeping an eye on the early cracking event this late winter?  Most of the multiyear ice went mobile with less than 2% of it still being landfast.  Time will tell if those leads, some of which froze back over, will promote transport and melt out of a majority of the remaining multiyear ice.

    Also, been keeping an eye on this:

    Note the thinning concentration spanning from 88° North to 86° North on the Siberian side.  I've been a cryoenthusiast for a number of years now and this is the first time I've seen it start thinning out there this early in the season.  Curious to see if the sea ice south of it flows North to compact around the pole or if we'll have open water there before June.

    Strange days.
