October Status

New PIOMAS data is now out for October, I've no intention of continuing with monthly status posts, but will do so when there's something to say. So here's an October's status blog post, and at the end there's a link to my new sea ice spreadsheet.

The 2013 Sea Ice Rebound (that never was)

There was no sea ice rebound in 2013, what happened was variation due to weather, the process underway in the Arctic has not stopped. But the increased volume of 2013 could still be one of the most useful features of the post 2010 situation. In this post I use PIOMAS data both from the PIOMAS main volume series, and PIOMAS gridded data, also Cryosphere Today Area (CT Area) and NSIDC Extent.
