The whole of the Arctic basin is covered in heavy cloud, covering up what is happening to the ice. We can get a clue from an area to the NE of Greenland where the Naval site shows some of the very last thick ice (2 meters thick) remains.
If that is happening there what is the thick cloud covering up?
This is very alarming.
This is from the only area that is relatively free of cloud today.
Perhaps if we keep collecting these pictures showing areas of ice breakup and melt without cloud we can get a better idea of the true situation beyond the useless graphs of “sea ice extent”
