Strong Recovery In Multi Year Arctic Sea Ice Continues
By Paul Homewood https://notalotofpeopleknowthat.wordpress.com/2015/03/23/rapid-recovery-in-arctic-sea-ice-volume-back-to-2006-levels/ I mentioned a couple of weeks ago we have been witnessing a strong recovery in Arctic sea ice volume and thickness in the last three years. This is due to the build up of multi year ice in recent years. I have been waiting for NSIDC to publish their Ice Age chart, which they have now done. (There is no link, as they have not released it publically yet – they have emailed it to me). As can be seen, all categories of multi year ice have increased since last year, apart from the 4-year percentage. Perhaps most significantly, 5-year and over ice has strongly recovered from its low point in March 2012. The 2012 figure, of course, reflected the large amount of ice lost in 2007 and 2008. With the large increase in 3 and 4-year ice in the last couple of years, there is a strong foundation for a continued increase in 5-year ice in the next two years.
