Warning – Anti-Science “Data” Video
Posted by Jeff Id on February 18, 2012
Sea ice by latitude video. Layman Lurker was able to use online tools to establish that the only perennial sea ice exists above about 72 degrees latitude. This leaves a small 18 degree circle at the north pole for the multi-year sea ice to exist. I wanted to confirm this fact before moving on with an analysis of trends in multi-year ice vs perennial. If we parse the sea ice data at this latitude we can get a better idea of what the sea ice ‘death spiral’ is comprised of.
Anyway, many on the previous thread wanted a video of the plots but the early sea ice years had missing data (every other day) which didn’t agree with R’s plotting function. I have interpolated (linearly) missing data and created the same plots as shown previously in a continuous manner for the existing data.
So in the vein of the Heatland institute funding of Anthony Watts denier intent to put already online temperature data online in a user friendly format, here is another user friendly anti-science video of online data from the NSIDC. – Sorry couldn’t resist.
