*Slowest Arctic Melt On Record*
/Posted on August 16, 2013 by stevengoddard/

Over the last three weeks, Arctic ice area has declined by 662,000 kmĀ²,
which is 60% of normal and the slowest on record.
This has been caused by the coldest Arctic summer on record.

Graphical:
In 2012 was the ice loss between July 24 and August 14 1,35 miljoen km2.
In 2013 was the ice loss between July 24 and August 0,65 miljoen km2.

The average day temp at 80 degr ia 2 degr C below the median and has been below since the middle of May. So it may be possible the the winter starts earlier as there disappeared less ice and the water is colder.
