However when I speak of recovery I’m comparing the ice to 2012 really, that’s the bottom. So roughly a 30% increase above the bottom in a so called warming world that is a big big deal.
Yesterday, as covered by WUWT, NSIDC announced that Arctic sea ice melt had turned the corner on September 10th with a value of 4.14 million square kilometers:
XMETMAN writes of his discovery of a discrepancy between what NSIDC announced yesterday, and what their data actually says. I’ve confirmed his findings by downloading the data myself and it sure seems that the minimum was on September 7th, and not the 10th:
He says on his blog:
The Arctic sea ice looks to have reached its minimum on the 7th September, which is four days earlier than average. The sea ice extent bottomed out at 4.083 million square kilometres making it the second lowest since records started in 1978 – well that’s according to the data file that I’ve just downloaded!
Strangely, according to the data that I download from the National Snow and Ice Data Center [NSIDC] the minimum occurred…

Thought I might give some climatology facts I will be doing.this randomly as I find them
