The Year–To–Date average volume is still 5th lowest for sea ice in the Arctic. Next target is 2016.
In the Arctic, the sea ice volume 4-yr average reached a new record low this week due to climate change. The new milestone was 13.7 thousand km³.
The Year–To–Date average extent is still 3rd lowest for sea ice in the Arctic. And all 5 lowest years are also the 5 latest years: 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019. Next target is 2018.
Yesterday daily Arctic sea ice volume was already lower than the September minimums of 8 years; 1979-80, 1983, 1986-89 and 1992, with about 90 more melt days to go. 2019 Melt Season average is 3rd lowest. Ten–Year Trend though, is still very stubborn.
