June 25, 2012
NSIDC has no new analysis since this one last week.
The graph above is the most current, from the 24th.
This shows is sea ice extent. “Extent” means that a given grid square contains at least 15 percent ice cover. So an area might count as “ice extent”, and still have a whole lot of open water.
Below, see the trend in August ice volume, according to the U. of Washington’s PIOMAS model.
