  •  A note on Arctic Sea ice: (3+ / 0-)

    From Uni Bremen, here are same-date images of ice coverage in the Barentsz and Kara Seas that show something pretty startling going on.

    As Neven says over on his Arctic Sea Ice Blog: "The Sun is barely rising over the horizon right now and remains visible for only a couple of hours. But this will soon change and it won't be long before there is enough light for us to start gazing at the MODIS satellite images. Whether the sea ice will retreat even more in the meantime or whether we will see a late freeze-up in the Barentsz and Kara Seas, remains to be seen. But as things currently stand, the Atlantic side of the Arctic looks spectacular. Spectacular and ominous."
