Sea Ice, Hudson Bay Region
Posted by Jeff Id on February 13, 2012
Sea ice area, Hudson bay-ish. From the gridded daily data.
Even though the peaks and valleys are near square waves, warming is causing a statistically significant decline in annual NET area.
Besides statistically measurable, the slope is alarmingly fast. It’s time to invest in the new Daytona beach.
Since we know that this region definitely melts 100% (should hit zero every year) and we can see the same step pattern in the lower edge. This appears to be another indication of a definite bias in the sea ice satellite data. How this is handled by the pro’s is an unexplored matter but this data is the final published version from the NSIDC.
