Antarctic Sea Ice Sets New Record For Jan 31st

February 2, 2014

By Paul Homewood




Antarctic sea ice extent continues to break records. Extent at 31st January, of 4.540 million sq km, beat the previous record set in 2008. This is 26% higher than the climatological average for this date of 3.598 million sq km.





On average, Antarctic sea ice reaches minimum on 20th February, about a month earlier, relatively speaking, than the Arctic. It is likely then that we will see a new record high minimum set this month. The current record was set in 2008, with 3.691 million sq km.


Meanwhile, global sea ice area is normal.

    Can you imagine the hoopla if the big finger east of WA breaks off and goes wandering?
