New Paper Indicates There Is More Arctic Sea Ice Now Than For Nearly All Of The Last 10,000 Years

March 2017. Massive Growth In Thick Arctic Sea Ice. Over the past nine years, there has been a huge increase in the area of thick Arctic sea ice.

Massive Growth In Thick Arctic Sea Ice

The Chukchi and East Siberian Seas had no thick ice in 2008, but lots of it now. DMI Modelled ice thickness Government experts of course claim the exact opposite, because they are paid to lie – or at least they were until January 20th. Historic Variation in Arctic Ice. Historic Variation in Arctic Ice Guest post from the Air Vent by Tony B The following is a guest post by Tony B on the history of Arctic ice.

Historic Variation in Arctic Ice

I nominated him Arctic ice historian on WUWT when I noticed he had done a considerable amount of research. Happily he took me up on it and has put a lot of work into this. Historic Variations in Arctic Sea Ice – Part Two. Guest essay by Tony brown Foreword Note; Last year an edited version of this article appeared at Climate Etc.

Historic Variations in Arctic Sea Ice – Part Two

This new version contains numerous additional references, graphics, quotes, more historic detail and updates. ‘Historic variations in Arctic Ice’ is a series of articles that attempts to determine the arctic warming events through the Holocene which commenced some 11000 years ago. (See Graphic ‘after Dansgaard et al’ below. Part 1 covered the warm period from approx. 1816 to 1860. After Dansgaard et al. This paper- Part 2–examines the period of warming 1920-1940 in detail with a decade long overlap. Long Term Arctic Temperature Trends. By Paul Homewood As I pointed out in my post, Arctic Sea Ice Update, the other day, we currently have low sea ice extent and unusually high temperature anomalies in the Arctic.

Long Term Arctic Temperature Trends

Although much of this is just weather, there is an underlying pattern of warming related to pulses of unusually warm water, which have been entering the Arctic Ocean from the Atlantic for the last decade or more. But just how unusual are conditions there? Short Video of Arctic Climate Alarmism - Principia Scientific International. The Deplorable Climate Science Blog. Inconvenient finding: Melting sea ice may lead to more life in the sea. From the UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN DENMARK and the “I can hear sea ice fanatic heads exploding already” department comes this bit of good news.

Inconvenient finding: Melting sea ice may lead to more life in the sea

Melting sea ice may lead to more life in the sea Melt ponds cover vast areas in the Arctic. CREDIT Heidi Louise Sørensen/SDU Melt ponds provide more light and heat for the ice and the underlying water, but now it turns out that they may also have a more direct and potentially important influence on life in the Arctic waters. Mats of algae and bacteria can evolve in the melt ponds, which can provide food for marine creatures. Own little ecosystems The melt ponds can form their own little ecosystem.

Honey, I Shrunk the Arctic Ice! Not.

The notion that man-made global warming causes Arctic ice to melt took a major hit with a recent publication. The article is Influence of high-latitude atmospheric circulation changes on summertime Arctic sea ice by Qinghua Ding, Axel Schweiger, Michelle L’Heureux, David S. Battisti, Stephen Po-Chedley, Nathaniel C. Johnson, Eduardo Blanchard-Wrigglesworth, Kirstin Harnos, Qin Zhang, Ryan Eastman & Eric J. Steig. The paper was published online by Nature Climate Change on 13 March 2017. Fear Not for Permafrosty. The Permafrost Bogeyman is Back!

Fear Not for Permafrosty

The Climate Scare of this Week is apparently melting permafrost.The Met Office warning on April 10: Increased climate change risk to permafrost. Global warming will thaw about 20% more permafrost than previously thought, scientists have warned – potentially releasing significant amounts of greenhouse gases into the Earth’s atmosphere. The researchers, from Sweden and Norway as well as the UK, suggest that the huge permafrost losses could be averted if ambitious global climate targets are met. Lead-author Dr Sarah Chadburn of the University of Leeds said: “A lower stabilisation target of 1.5ºC would save approximately two million square kilometres of permafrost. “Achieving the ambitious Paris Agreement climate targets could limit permafrost loss.

The permafrost bogeyman has been reported before, been debunked, but will likely return again like a zombie that never dies. Permafrost basics He grabbed a T-shaped depth probe and shoved it into the ground. Fig. 1. Nature, not humans, could be cause of up to half of Arctic sea ice loss, study claims. Natural processes may be responsible for up to half the dramatic decline in sea ice in the Arctic over the last four decades, according to a new study. While air currents had been affected by human-induced climate change, most of the changes were the result of an internal variability within the system over several decades, the researchers found.

And they estimated these natural fluctuations were responsible for between 30 and 50 per cent of the sea ice loss since 1979. Other climate scientists said the study helped explained why their computer models had underestimated the reduction in sea ice compared to what has actually happened in the region. Sea ice in the Arctic and Antarctic has been hitting record lows in recent months. The loss of sea ice is believed to be accelerating global warming, because white ice reflects the sun's heat back out to space, while dark water absorbs it. “We do know that global warming, anthropogenic forcing, will have some effect on the circulation,” he said. Visualizing Government Arctic Sea Ice Fraud. “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.”– Upton Sinclair Government agencies like NOAA, NASA and NSIDC start their sea ice graphs in 1979, in order to make it look like there is a linear decline in sea ice.

NOAA claims they don’t have satellite data before 1979, but they are lying. The 1990 IPCC report showed NOAA satellite data back to 1973, which was much lower than 1979. 1990 IPCC Report. The Deplorable Climate Science Blog. In 1922, the Arctic was hot, glaciers were disappearing and sea ice never formed around Spitzbergen. This year, there is lots of ice around Spitzbergen. ‎osisaf.met.no/p/osisaf_hlprod_qlook.php According to fake NASA temperature data, 1922 was one of the coldest years on record. Data.GISS: GISS Surface Temperature Analysis: Analysis Graphs and Plots. Today’s Arctic Compares with 150 years ago. Imagery date refers to Google Earth capture of land forms. Ice extent is for August 31, 2016 from MASIE. Serenity is docked at Devon Island. Today’s Arctic Compares with 150 years ago. By Paul Homewood h/t Tom0mason Repost from Ron Clutz: Researchers found that ice conditions in the 19th century were remarkably similar to today’s, observations falling within normal variability.

The study is Accounts from 19th-century Canadian Arctic Explorers’ Logs Reflect Present Climate Conditions (here) by James E. Overland, Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory/NOAA, Seattle,Wash., and Kevin Wood, Arctic Research Office/NOAA, Silver Spring, Md. Arctic Was An Open Sea In The Year 1122. You ask, I provide. November 2nd, 1922. Arctic Ocean Getting Warm; Seals Vanish and Icebergs Melt. Roger Carr recently wrote in comments: Inconvenient new study: Canadian Arctic had significantly warmer summers a few thousand years ago. Arctic Warming Unalarming. A Light In Siberia. By guest writer Ed Caryl. The Calculations Behind “A Light in Siberia” NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT. Bipolar disorder – as in the Arctic, the Antarctic sea ice extent is affected by wind, unless of course it’s ‘climate change’ From the “no matter what happens it is climate change” department. Remember the Arctic cyclone that busted up sea ice in 2012? It seems such storms are more common than previously thought.

From 2000 to 2010, about 1,900 cyclones churned across the top of the world each year, leaving warm water and air in their wakes – and melting sea ice in the Arctic Ocean. That’s about 40 percent more of these Arctic storms than previously thought, according to a new study of vast troves of weather data that previously were synthesized at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC).

A 40 percent difference in the number of cyclones could be important to anyone who lives north of 55 degrees latitude – the area of the study, which includes the northern reaches of Canada, Scandinavia and Russia, along with the state of Alaska. The finding is also important to researchers who want to get a clear picture of current weather patterns, and a better understanding of potential climate change in the future, explained David Bromwich, Ph.D., professor of geography at The Ohio State University and senior research scientist at the Byrd Polar Research Center. How could anyone miss a storm as big as a cyclone? Study: Landmass shape affects extent of Arctic sea ice. Polar Vortex Blamed On Global Warming And Global Cooling.
