Arctic Sea Ice Melt Patterns and Analysis // Sep 5, 2018
It appears that Arctic Sea-Ice will hang on for another year, as the melt season draws to a close for 2018. No blue-ocean event this year. However, the nature of the melt is definitely changing, and we can discern patterns in the melt from year to year.
For example, at minimum-sea ice extent in Sept., 2014 there was still relatively thick ice (multi-year, and/or ridged ice) north of the Canadian Archipelago, but it pretty much vanished by the subsequent melt season. All that’s been left in September’s since then is ice less than a meter thick, apart from some 2 meter ice hanging on near the archipelago islands. What’s next? When? Why?
Stay tuned for 3 more ice videos.
