Arctic sea ice extent, Arctic sea ice extent, 6,443,00 km2 (August 9, 2013), the day's loss, W.Virginia plus Rhode Island-sized. Before 2013 began, I posted, the 2013 Arctic Ice might not be as dramatic a loss as 2012. At this point, the Arctic sea ice will have to disappear quickly to match 2012.

Average temperature above the 80th degree parallel, 0 degC. Thought our early morning temperature was warm here in the Puget Sound, at 61degF. But a wide far northern Canadian region had early morning temperatures above the Arctic Circle as high as 19degC(66degF).

Arctic sea ice VOLUME loss is a better measure of overall Arctic biosphere warming, than sea ice area loss, tho it's data is harder to determine. AGW deniers have complained about the seeming inaccurate use of Volume, but recently new satellite data have confirmed Volume measures. Since the 1980's, the loss of Arctic sea ice VOLUME could only be seen in decadal periods of time. However, the rate of Arctic sea ice VOLUME loss has so greatly increased, VOLUME loss, often can be seen YEARLY! Arctic VOLUME as of August 1, 2013 is 7% HIGHER than that of the "2010-to-current" time range. Average Arctic sea ice VOLUME for August 1, for the period 1980-89, was ~18,000 cubic kilometers. Present August 1, 2013 sea ice VOLUME is ~7100 cubic kilometers,~11,000 cubic kilometers less than the 1980-89 period for August.

Often, toxic topix AGW deniers love to concentrate on Arctic sea ice area in the latter winter-early spring period, to show how little sea ice has been affected. However, considerations of Arctic sea ice VOLUME show the uncontrolled plummet of sea ice, desired by unscientific AGW deniers, who mostly have no or little mathematical or science background.

Hello, litesong. About Judith Curry:

Her PhD thesis at the University of Chicago was on the impact of sea ice and clouds on the radiation balance of the Arctic. She continued that research for a decade while serving as a faculty member at the University of Wisconsin, Purdue and eventually Penn State.

Any comment? Her BS was in Geography, not kidding.

Glad she has engaged with AGW deniers. Wonder if she has studied excess AGW energy being absorbed by ever clearer Arctic waters & if she has any thoughts of downwellings & excess AGW energy transported to Siberian Arctic ice shelves & even deeper, into the Arctic Ocean by secondary feedbacks?

Despite the Arctic late winter & spring, colder than normal, the 2013 Arctic sea ice VOLUME at the beginning of August is 2000+ cubic kilometers less than the Arctic sea ice VOLUME average total yearly losses for the 2000's.

Average temperature above the 80th degree parallel is at -1 degC. With the sun 23.5 diameters of the sun lower in the sky than at its highest at the beginning of summer, near by temperatures in early morning western Canada across the Arctic Circle reflect that ambiguity with variances of 15degC(27degF). Daylight is lessening above the Arctic Circle.

Arctic sea ice extent, Arctic sea ice extent, 5,619,531 km2 (August 24, 2013), the day's loss, Connecticut plus Rhode Island-sized. Before 2013 began, I posted, the 2013 Arctic Ice might not be as dramatic a loss as 2012.

Average temperature above the 80th degree parallel,-1 degC.

Arctic sea ice VOLUME loss is a better measure of overall Arctic biosphere warming, than sea ice area loss, tho it's data is harder to determine. AGW deniers have complained about the seeming inaccurate use of Volume, but recently new satellite data have confirmed Volume measures. Since the 1980's, the loss of Arctic sea ice VOLUME could only be seen in decadal periods of time. However, the rate of Arctic sea ice VOLUME loss has so greatly increased, VOLUME loss, often can be seen YEARLY! Arctic VOLUME as of August 1, 2013 is 7% HIGHER than that of the "2010-to-current" time range. Average Arctic sea ice VOLUME for August 1, for the period 1980-89, was ~18,000 cubic kilometers. Present August 1, 2013 sea ice VOLUME is ~7100 cubic kilometers,~11,000 cubic kilometers less than the 1980-89 period for August.

Considerations of Arctic sea ice VOLUME show the uncontrolled plummet of sea ice, desired by unscientific toxic topix AGW deniers, who mostly have no or little mathematical or science background.

Presently the 2013 Arctic sea ice extent is about the same as the yearly average total sea ice loss for the 2000's.

Average temperature above the 80th degree parallel dropped to -3 degC. With the sun 24 diameters of the sun lower in the sky than at its highest at the beginning of summer & only 10degrees above the horizon at the NP, near by temperatures in early morning northwestern Canada & Alaska reflect that ambiguity with variances of 12degC(22degF). Daylight is lessening above the Arctic Circle.

The pattern of unusually low pressure centered near the pole in 2013 has helped to spread the ice out and is consistent with generally cool conditions over much of the Arctic Ocean, inhibiting melt. By contrast, in the summer of 2012, a broad region of unusually high pressure centered over Greenland, in combination with below average pressure centered over the East Siberian and Chukchi seas, led to winds over the Beaufort Sea with a more southerly component than is usually the case, leading to warm conditions. That high pressure last year over Greenland also contributed to a record melt season for the Greenland ice sheet. Melt this year over the ice sheet has been more moderate, though still above rates seen in the 1990s. http://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/2013/08/the...

Yes, even in August, the very temporary Arctic warmth, dependent on the higher sun & long times of daylight, is disappearing, as quickly as darkness is returning to portions of the Arctic.

"I'm training [the post was written before the climb] for something that I hope will help stop one of the most heartbreaking acts of wanton environmental destruction – drilling for oil in the Arctic. I'm over the moon that I can play any part in the mass resistance to this horrifying practice," she wrote.
