Review Of 2013 – Global Sea Ice Area

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

 

Continuing the review of 2013, let’s look at global sea ice.

Sceptics are often criticised for cherry picking, but it is hard to see how Dec 31st can be a “cherry picked day”!

Global sea ice area for Dec 31st 2013 was the highest ever for that day, on the satellite record going back to 1979.

And during the year as a whole, the global sea ice anomaly has been above average for most of the year. On average over the year, the area has been 104,000 sq km above the 1979-2008 mean, and was above average for 212 days.
