Arctic Sea Ice Still Quite Abundant for Early Summer

Forget about whether the numbers are below or above some short-term average, there is no catastrophe in the making for marine mammals in the Arctic at this time.

Claim: Data Exists Showing Polar Bear Body Condition Improves Over Summer On Sea Ice

I would seriously like to know which paper or papers this data appears in but of course, he doesn’t provide that information. Instead, it’s ‘trust me, I’m the expert’.

Southern Beaufort Sea Polar Bear Habitat at the Summer Solstice is Above Average

Sea ice is well above recent levels for this time of year in the Southern Beaufort and only time will tell if that’s bad news for polar bears.

New Polar Bear Subpopulation Update: More Background Facts and Details from the Paper

As a consequence, the media have been trying to out-do each other with the most over-the-top climate catastrophe headlines,

Polar Bear Habitat in Canada Over the Last Decade: Spring Sea Ice Not in a Death Spiral

Sea ice extent in Canada at the height of Arctic spring over the last 10 years has been more like a gentle roller coaster than a death spiral.

Arctic Sea Ice Stabilizes, No Trend Reduction In More Than 10 Years As Solar Cycle Starts Off Weakly

From the NoTricksZone By Die kalte Sonne The Copernicus program offers very interesting data on Arctic ice. While sea ice has been declining off the Greenland Sea (east of the island), the Chucki…

Solar energy explains fast yearly retreat of Antarctica’s sea ice

Unlike other aspects of its behavior, Antarctic sea ice is just following simple rules of physics.

NASA Finds 2022 Arctic Winter Sea Ice 10th-Lowest on Record

Arctic sea ice appeared to have hit its annual maximum extent on Feb. 25 after growing through the fall and winter. This year’s wintertime extent is the 10th-lowest in the…

Arctic Snow Depth, Ice Thickness, and Volume From ICESat-2 and CryoSat-2: 2018–2021

(Arctic) East Coast Sea Ice so far Similar to Last Year

Compared to last year at this time, there was somewhat less ice along the Labrador coast but the difference is really negligible. By April, ice extent was well below average,…

Higher than average Svalbard sea ice extent in November 2021 has implications for birth of cubs

Results of polar bear health monitoring in the spring of 2021 indicated the bears are doing just fine after last year’s low ice levels. Despite this evidence, a single bear photographed killing a…

Late Freeze-Up For W. Hudson Bay Polar Bears At Odds With Ice Conditions Elsewhere

There was so little ice on the west shore of Hudson Bay yesterday it is barely visible on the NSIDC global chart yet there was abundant ice in the Chukchi…

Chukchi Sea ice that didn’t melt this summer is now 2+m thick between Wrangel Island and the shore

Thick multiyear ice between Wrangel Island and the shore is now more than 2m thick, potentially impacting fall feeding for bears that routinely summer on Wrangel or the north coast of Chukotka.
