Arctic sea ice report - 08/27/2018

Arctic Sea Ice Extent Threatening a Top 5 Lowest Annual Minimum This September (Aug. 27, 2018)

Margo shares an article from Nick Humphrey regarding loss of ice in the Arctic and its consequences. She also reviews a blogpost from Robin Westenra regarding the freakishly warm temperature that accurred in the Arctic last February. 

Time is short. 

Be kind to one another and get your spiritual houses in order. 

God bless everyone! 

Power to the Truth! Peace, Margo

I recommend that you watch the entirety of Margo's video.  However, if you are short on time here is my own short explanation of what is happening using those areas that are free of cloud cover.

You can clearly see at 68 degrees N that the ice is breaking down and one is looking either at large meltponds or we are seeing open water (I suspect the latter). 

All those areas that were until recently thick, multi-year ice, north of Greenland and in the inlets is to all practical purposes now open water.

Although temperatures are falling the melt continues.

These are sea surface temperatures. The whole of the edge is above zero. The representation does not indicate the temperature of water underneath the ice.

These are absolute tempeartures at 2m.


And high sea temperature anomlaies, especially in the north of Siberia (except for the East Siberian Arctic)

This is the sea ice concentration as of today -

And the sea ice thickness according to the US navy

I shall post Nicholas Hunphrey's excellent post seperately.
