2022 Arctic Ice Abounds at Average Daily Minimum

Posted: September 19, 2022 by oldbrew in climate, data, sea ice

But alarmists still insist the poles are warming several times faster than the global average. Data says no.

Science Matters

The annual competition between ice and water in the Arctic ocean has reached the maximum for water, which typically occurs mid September.  After that, diminishing energy from the slowly setting sun allows oceanic cooling causing ice to regenerate. Those interested in the dynamics of Arctic sea ice can read numerous posts here.  This post provides a look at mid September from 2007 to yesterday as a context for understanding this year’s annual minimum.

The image above shows Arctic ice extents on day 260 (lowest annual daily extent on average) from 2007 to 2022 yesterday.  Obviously, the regions vary as locations for ice, discussed in more detail later on. The animation shows the ice deficits in years 2007, 2012, 2016 and 2020, as well as surplus years like 2010, 2014 and the last two years, 2021-2022.

Note that for climate purposes the annual minimum is measured by the September monthly average…

    That’s clearly ice-free…unless you are a Denier!

    Phoenix – maybe someone spilt white paint on the graphics 😉

  3. The Arctic Ocean does not evaporate when it is covered with sea ice. There would be no ice on Greenland if the Arctic never thawed. The Arctic was thawed during the Roman and Medieval Warm times, the Vikings sailed the thawed ocean and moved to Greenland and lived there. Greenland Ice Core Records show there was abundant ice accumulation while the Vikings lived there and the ice piled up and pushed the Vikings out as the advancing ice brought on the Little Ice Age. History and Data support this. Warm times with thawed polar oceans are necessary for evaporation and rebuilding of sequestered ice on polar land. Climate change is natural and not caused by man-made CO2.

    Satellites now get full-year view of Arctic sea-ice

    Satellites can now measure the thickness of sea-ice covering the Arctic Ocean all year round.


    No more bluffing then?

    2022 Arctic Summer Sea Ice Tied for 10th-Lowest on Record


    Fascinating 😴

    Two doomsters whose Arctic predictions failed by expiring this year…


    “The chance that there will be any permanent ice left in the Arctic after 2022 is essentially zero,” Anderson said.

    Right 😆

    Arctic sea ice: 16 year September trend line is ‘virtually flat’.


    ‘Rapid melting’ mythology takes another hit.
