Antarctic Sea Ice Well Above Normal In June

July 4, 2013

By Paul Homewood




Antarctic sea ice extent in June remained well above normal. This continues the long term trend for June extent since 1981.

The average extent during the month was 14.6 million sq km, and represents the second greatest extent since 1980. Only June 2010 was higher.




Daily numbers confirm that extent is still much higher then the 1981-2010 mean, as well as last year.




Similarly, ice area is also much greater then usual.




You don’t have to look far for the reasons. GISS temperatures for May show most of the Antarctic much colder than normal.

    Global Warming must have caused this. Sceptics Rule 🙂

    Who cares? Sea ice has no sea level or other significant effects, despite efforts to ascribe some. Open navigable waters might well be better. Warming is good, but unfortunately improbable.
