    The Arctic Ice freezeup has continued its course along the very bottom of the past freezeups.

    Northern Hemisphere Sea Ice Area

    The present freezeup is over 1.6 million square kilometers less than the norm. And we are nearly done with this year. The differance between the previous low point and this years low point was the greatest that it has ever been. And then there is the total volume;

    I notice they left out the 2010 max in the images which showed In March 2010, average Arctic sea ice extent was 15.10 million square kilometers (5.83 million square miles). This was 670,000 square kilometers (260,000 square miles) above the record low, set in March 2006
