Antarctic sea ice extent just slipped below last year’s record level, but was still the 2nd highest October extent in the modern satellite record. At the end of the month it measured 18.208 million sq km, 768,000 sq km above the 1981-2010 average.

With Southern Ocean SST’s still well below normal, where they have been for most of the last eight years, ice extent is likely to remain near to record levels over the Antarctic summer.

With Arctic ice extent just 6% below average at the end of October, global sea ice area remains just above normal.

      Triggered by the prayers of Mark Serreze and his acolytes wanting something to reduce Arctic sea ice from it’s near normal levels?
