Cryosphere Today imagery back online

They seems to have fixed their data problems.The comparison image to 2007 remains interesting. There also has been a shift in the wind.

The DMI temperature image has a big uptick in sync.

Jaxa Sea Ice Area shows it below 2009.

Still a lot of area- I don’t think it’s going much lower.The pull up is about to begin….

Reason? Seems SST still fairly warm. comment image

Them being down made me wish someone would save off all their images “just in case” there is a next time. But that’s pretty impractical without automating it.

Is the wind over now, because the DMI just did a big downtick after the uptick. ??

Looking at the earth from the south pole side, an alien would easily think that the planet is an ice planet. The land and sea-ice extent at the SP is sooooooooooo large. http://nsidc.org/data/seaice_index/images/daily_images/S_bm_extent_hires.png

Okidoki, they’re online. And the 2007 data is interesting. And the wind shifted. ?
When did the wind shift, in 2007?

I’ve automated a daily fetch and convert to .jpg mechanism. It would be trivial to archive things, but I haven’t decided I want to yet.
I’ve moved the fetch time to later (1145 EDT), soon after the archive is updated. It had been earlier to catch the garish image-of-the day. (The archive images aren’t as garish.)
The Antarctic archive isn’t back in place yet, unless it’s moved – they seem to be replacing/upgrading parts of their archive.
I’ll poke around a bit.

August 18 is the first time this year, since May 5th, that the IARC-JAXA extent numbers show 2010 greater than the same day in 2008. August 18 2010 is 241,094 km^2 below same day 2009 and 227,500 km^2 below same day 2005. Beating those 2 years’ minima is not impossible. Extrapolating from past trends, I predict that the minimum will occur on Labour Day (September 6th).

Would someone please explain something to me.
Cryosphere shows some 1.3 Million sq km less than normal. YET … when I look at the individual seas, we have:
Arctic, Baffin, Greenland, Hudson: -50K [collective about -200K]
Kara: – 150K
Laptev, Siberian, Chuck, beaufort, Canada .. all at about -100K [collective – 500K]
When adding all these up, I come up with a -850K anomoly. … so in Cryosphere language …. -0.850 million kms.
So .. why do they say -1.3, when the collective anomoly is -0.850
WattsUpWithThat?????????
