Skip to comments.CryoSat shows Arctic sea ice volume up 50% from last year

Measurements from ESAs CryoSat satellite show that the volume of Arctic sea ice has significantly increased this past autumn.
The volume of ice measured this autumn is about 50% higher compared to last year. In October 2013, CryoSat measured about 9000 cubic km of sea ice a notable increase compared to 6000 cubic km in October 2012.
Over the last few decades, satellites have shown a downward trend in the area of Arctic Ocean covered by ice. However, the actual volume of sea ice has proven difficult to determine because it moves around and so its thickness can change.
CryoSat was designed to measure sea-ice thickness across the entire Arctic Ocean, and has allowed scientists, for the first time, to monitor the overall change in volume accurately.
About 90% of the increase is due to growth of multiyear ice which survives through more than one summer without melting with only 10% growth of first year ice. Thick, multiyear ice indicates healthy Arctic sea-ice cover.
This years multiyear ice is now on average about 20%, or around 30 cm, thicker than last year. . .

Don’t let data fool you — the dogma remains the same.
Whataya mean? The data SUPPORTS global warming... it always does!
I blame fracking.
Some serious ice on the great lakes this year too.
Who you gonna believe, Michael Mann or your lyin’ eyes?
Henny Penny is going to be pi$$ed.
Great Lakes shipping will be fun when they try and start up again in March.
This is climate change. Colder weather is brought on by global warming, just like global warming is brought on by people. Too many sweating human bodies. Need something like Obamacare to reduce the old, the young and the diseased/
You laugh but there is evidence that fracking has opened pockets of the Hughes Bosons. The primeval particles were separated from decaying radio active elements geologic ages ago.
Over time the particles permeated the lower mantle and then over vast areas were resisted by the selenium trichloride found in much of the shale. They were forced together into pockets that were released into the extracted gas by the tiny fractures.Once on the surface they permeate the various containment vessels still in the clumps.
The precise method has not yet been determined but it is believed that the concentrations of Bosons in the atmosphere produce extreme thinning of CO2 resulting in conductive loss through the hole. Trisometric surveys are being conducted to measure the effect
Yes. Maybe. But ALGORE says it probably is the “bad” kind of ice, and not the “good” polar bear kind of ice.
Thanks for link.
An “Inconvenient Truth”.
When the warmists come up against data that contradicts their theories, they change the data. They’ve done this again and again. You can expect some type of error to suddenly be discovered in the Arctic sea ice data, requiring adjustments to bring it in line with the global warming religion.
I’m not supporting JAXA... notice the big bold note that they “adjusted” their data back in September....
No doubt to skew it back down some.
