Ten year record high Arctic Sea Ice Extent for this date, ice higher than 30% concentration-DMI

11/1/15, "Arctic Sea Ice Extent, The Northern Hemisphere Sea Ice coverage," DMI,  Danish Meteorological Institute 

"Current Sea Ice extent"

"Total sea ice extent on the northern hemisphere since 2005. The ice extent values are calculated from the ice type data from the Ocean and Sea Ice, Satellite Application Facility (OSISAF), where areas with ice concentration higher than 30% are classified as ice.

The total area of sea ice is the sum of First Year Ice (FYI), Multi Year Ice (MYI) and the area of ambiguous ice types, from the OSISAF ice type product. However, the total estimated ice area is underestimated due to unclassified coastal regions where mixed land/sea pixels confuse the applied ice type algorithm. The shown sea ice extent values are therefore recommended be used qualitatively in relation to ice extent values from other years shown in the figure....

Please notice, that the sea ice extent in this plot is calculated with the coastal zones masked out. To see the absolute extent, go to this page."...


Comment: None of this matters. The US political class has built a $2 billion a day imaginary industry based on stealing from and demonizing innocent Americans. Why should they stop now?
