The Dirty Little Secret About Arctic Ice
#1
Real Science

September 2012

EXCERPT:

The vast majority of multi-year ice is lost during the winter, not the summer. Winter winds blow the thick ice out into the North Atlantic where it melts when it contacts warmer water.

Between 1988 and 1996, two thirds of the five year old ice disappeared.

Dr. Meier at Watts Up With That made a specific statement of low and lower than 2007 Arctic ice level in the earlier parts of the Holocene:

NSIDC’s Dr. Walt Meier – part 2

Selected Excerpt:

Can the Arctic really become sea ice-free during summer?

It has been suggested that the Arctic really can’t lose all its sea ice during summer because there isn’t enough energy to melt all of the ice in the short summer. There are a couple of reasons why this thinking is faulty.

First, we know the Arctic can potentially lose all its sea ice during summer because it has done so in the past. Examination of several proxy records (e.g., sediment cores) of sea ice indicate ice-free or near ice-free summer conditions for at least some time during the period of 15,000 to 5,000 years ago (Polyak et al., 2010) when Arctic temperatures were not much warmer than today.

An update on the Arctic ice recovery.

EXCERPT:

Quote:The Danish Meteorological Institute shows a 63% increase in Arctic sea ice extent since the same date in 2012, and an increase of 76% since the 2012 summer minimum. Current extent is 4.4 million km², up from 2.7 million km² on August 28, 2012.

Chart to see in the link.

EXCERPT:

Quote:A favorite comment from alarmists is “the increase in ice extent is meaningless, because the ice is getting thinner“

They have it exactly backwards. The reason why ice extent is up, is because the ice is thicker. The animation below, based on maps from NSIDC, shows the movement of older, thicker ice into the western Arctic over the past two years. The color scale represents the age of the ice – i.e. five year old ice is red. You can see how older, thicker ice is moving towards Alaska, and accumulating. The amount of five year old ice has more than doubled over the past two years.

Albedo Changes – What NSIDC Don’t Want You To Know

January 10,2014

Paul Homewood

EXCERPT:

[Image: arctic_albedo_2.png]

We often hear it said that the loss of Arctic sea ice is more important than gains in the Antarctic.

I saw it again the other day, when some idiot made a comment to the effect that “Arctic summer = Antarctic winter” – his train of thought apparently being that, in the Arctic summer, the sun is shining and therefore less ice means less sunlight being reflected back into space. At the same time, it is winter in Antarctica, and therefore the albedo effect there is not relevant.

We should not be surprised that people make such stupid comments, as NSIDC seem equally confused. In their 3rd October press release, they talk of:

Sea Ice And Albedo Effects

October 25,2013

Paul Homewood

EXCERPT:

NSIDC have grudgingly admitted that Arctic minimum sea ice extent has recovered from last year’s low.

(I think the headline says everything you need to know about the politicisation of NSIDC – “Avoids last year’s record low” – an unaware reader would assume that this year had just scraped above it, rather than exceed it by 50%).



But back to the point! We often hear that the loss of ice in the Arctic is of more significance than the gains in the Antarctic. As NSIDC lead scientist, Ted Scambos, says:



“The tiny gain in Antarctica’s ice is an interesting puzzle for scientists. The rapid loss of ice in the Arctic should be ringing alarm bells for everyone”



But why is this so? NSIDC explain:

Ed Hawkins Mocks Peter Wadhams

November 6,2014

Paul Homewood

EXCERPT:

Ed Hawkins, climate scientist at Reading University and contributor to IPCC AR5, does not seem to think too much of fellow climatologist and uber warmist, Professor Peter Wadhams. It is Wadhams, you may recall, who has regularly been telling us that all the Arctic ice would have melted away by now.

Hawkins has the above graph on twitter, exposing Wadham’s nonsensical claims.

Having failed to get it right before, the good professor now tells us we will have to wait till 2020. This is his latest offering from the Alaska Dispatch News.

Historic Variation in Arctic Ice

EXCERPT:

Guest post from the Air Vent by Tony B

The following is a guest post by Tony B on the history of Arctic ice. I nominated him Arctic ice historian on WUWT when I noticed he had done a considerable amount of research. Happily he took me up on it and has put a lot of work into this. I don’t know his full background, but I think you’ll see he has an excellent grasp of the historic nature of sea ice in the Arctic. His post here is well referenced and tells an interesting story not found in the nuances of mathematical data mashing.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

I placed most of the images in myself from Tony’s references.

Historic Variations in Arctic sea ice. Part II: 1920-1950

April 10,2013

Tony Brown

EXCERPT:

Satellite observations that provide an hour by hour picture of every part of the Arctic make it easy to forget that large areas of it had not even been even explored 80 years ago – let alone its ice extent minutely observed. This paper explores the controversy surrounding the period 1920-1950, which was a period of substantial warming in the Arctic.

Historic variations in Arctic sea ice is a series that attempts to determine the arctic warming events through the Holocene which commenced some 11000 years ago. Part 1 covered the warm period from approx. 1816 to 1860. This paper – Part 2 – examines the period of warming 1920-1940 with a decade long overlap. Part 3 will examine the evidence for other episodes of warming through the Holocene.

More On The Arctic Ice Satellite Scam

By Steve Goddard

May 14, 2015

EXCERPT:

Arctic ice propaganda at NSIDC depends on graphs like the one below, which cleverly start at peak ice in 1979, and create the deceptive appearance of a linear decrease in ice – intended to fool the reader into believing it is due to CO2 emissions.

[Image: figure3-350x2701.png?w=452&h=349]

But they are hiding the Nimbus 5 microwave satellite data, which goes back to 1972 and was included in the 1990 IPCC report. The Nimbus 5 data completely wrecks their story, because it shows that ice in 1974 was no more extensive than it is today, and that NSIDC cherry-picked 1979 as their start date.

Antarctic Peninsula Stopped Warming 30 Years Ago

Let’s look at the GISS temperature records for Rothera and Faraday, on the west side of the peninsula, and the Argentine stations of Esperanza and Marambio on the east. At all four stations, there was a sharp rise in temperatures between 1980 and 1983, since when temperatures appear to have been fairly stable.

New insights on Arctic Quaternary climate variability from palaeo-records and numerical modelling
