Following the records set last September,  Antarctic Sea Ice Extent continues to run well above normal. The average for January was similar to last year, and continues the increasing trend since 1979.

Sea Ice Area is also much higher than normal. As at the 4th February, it was 27% above normal.

Meanwhile, Arctic Ice Extent has been running above last year’s figures for the most of last month.

    It is clearly apparent that warmth causes more ice in the Southern Hemisphere and less in the Northern Hemisphere. (sarc)

    LOL, Paul, you’re killing me!!! I can’t remember what I was going to write about last time, but, this is twice now, I had a notion to write about something and you’ve just written about it! Keep it up!

    The arctic maximum should be interesting this year. I look for global ice extent it to be well above last year.
