Year-To-Date Average Sea Ice Volume

The Year–To–Date average volume went from 7th in March to 5th lowest for sea ice on Thursday, after some record early flash melting this year. Now the Top 3 lowest for the year is within reach!

Q: Where’s the data source for this plot?
A: Here: http://psc.apl.uw.edu/research/projects/arctic-sea-ice-volume-anomaly/data/
Q: How can anyone make a year-to-date average graph?
A: Easy. Use a computer. Add all the ice for every day so far this year, divide by the number of days.
Q: Why would I even do that?
A: Let’s say you want to know how much ice we have in 2019 compared to other years.
