2002 Sea Ice Webcam Time-lapse in Barrow, Alaska
 
01:44
This is a time-lapse of the web cam located North of Barrow, AK at NARL, overlooking landfast ice in the Arctic Ocean (Chukchi Sea). One photo per day, spanning the entire annual cycle including sea ice drift and growth (October), and decay (May/June), and break-up (July). Note that young ice formed on October 16 sheltered by ice drifting in day before. A good part of the landfast ice broke out around March 19; while it is common for ice to break out before summer, usually it does not happen this close to the shore as there tend to be grounded pressure ridges to protect it. Melt ponds formed around May 21, 2002, which is comparatively early at this location; they refreeze and get covered by snow later in May. Time-lapse spans September 2001 until August 2002. The camera is located atop the UIC Science Center at NARRL, 5 miles NE of Barrow, facing approximately NW. See http://www.gi.alaska.edu/snowice/sea-lake-ice/barrow_webcam.html for today's sea ice webcam image in downtown Barrow.

AMSR-E  Arctic Sea Ice Study July 2009
 
01:54
This is only one part of several such studies I'm currently working on dealing with the current condition of Sea Ice . In this study we examine the AMSR-E Arctic Sea Ice . It is my thoughts that the U.S. National Snow and Ice Data Center ( NSIDC ) is manipulating data to help push the Current Administration of the United States Cap N Trade Climate Legislation . Furthermore the U.S. National Snow and Ice Data Center has already been caught in a blatant lie already once this year in February 2009 . They blamed the missing Sea Ice on Faulty Sensor sensor drift, that underestimated Arctic Sea Ice by 500,000 square kilometers (193,000 square miles), a California- size area . AMSR-E " Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer ", clearly showed the Sea Ice they had missed in February 2009 and it also shows that their deception has continued into July 2009 .The Ice for the most part has survived a Harsh Summer and will shortly no longer be a Seasonal Ice . There is something going on here and people need to look at the big picture and not short term day to day events . A good example is some of the record heat in the Pacific Northwest , Almost right away people came out in their battle cry that Global Warming is back with a vengeance . I ask that these people step back and take a look at the bigger picture and try not to focus on a few days. Many States in the Mid West have actually just finished what can only be called a Record Cool July. The Entire Month not a couple of days. In my location we did not even get above 90 degrees fahrenheit. This is the First time in over 130 years of weather observations this has not happened and was not for a few days but the entire month. There was well over 4,000 cold records broken in the month of July . Look at the larger picture do you realize that we have had four interglacial warming periods in the past 2,000,000 years.Six miles from Cincinnati you can still see the terminal moraine of the Wisconsin Glacier? A 1,000-foot high ice face was there just 18,000 years ago. This ice stretched back to the North Pole . What caused this massive glacier composed of countless cubic miles of ice to melt and go back to the Arctic over the past 12,000 years? There were no factories, no cars, no buses, no trucks, etc. Think about that long and hard. How much climate change do you need to have happen to melt that *enormous* amount of ice that stretched all across the Midwest to New England and then all over Canada back up to the North Pole?. Enter a new period of glaciation . Interglacial warming looks to have been halted and new Ice is starting to slowly become a dominant factor. The Stratopshere continues to cool and Ice is rebounding in some places . Though these places may be different then where we originally found the ice at it is clear from AMSR-E Data that the Ice is starting to rebound . Organization like the NSIDC should be ashamed of themselves , For the second time in a year their outdated Sensor Data System has been caught in a clear and deceptive lie .The only question that remains is this deception being done for the Obama Administration in an effort to push their climate change agenda on the people . Due to the fact of the recent cooling has been hushed up while the media has chosen to focus only on some of the excessive heat that has been encountered in the Pacific Northwest or the statements from a A Canadian astronaut on a six-month stay aboard the international space station said on Sunday it looks like Earth's ice caps have melted a bit since he was last in orbit 12 years ago. Of course there is less at this time than 12 years ago . But the difference is a Solar Cycle has gone by and in the last 2 years we have started to see the Ice Rebound , God forbid he would have seen the Ice in 2007 for he would have surely claimed the end was near . And to top off the list the timely release of the report in July by U.S. National Snow and Ice Data Center claiming that Ice had retreated more in 2009 and was the smallest ever seen. Clearly not true using Microwave data.In some places there is less Ice but there is much more in places like Hudson Bay ,Cambridge Bay and the Queen Elizabeth Islands . More study and more time are needed . This is not setteled science and as we move deeper into a Centruy Class Solar Minimum that mocks the Maunder Minimum we need to be more concerned with the potential Ice Age that has nothing to do with man . This study will continue onward as I have reviewed more data I have disabled comments because of threats to me and my family . Any further threats will be reported to the proper authorities. This cover up must stop here and now

Tourism meltdown, Climate change causes drift ice lost
 
06:41
The Sea of Okhotsk has long been the southernmost spot in the Northern Hemisphere where polar sea ice is found. After spreading southward out of the Arctic each winter and along the eastern edge of Sakhalin Island, the ice typically arrives in Hokkaido in mid to late January. The best time to see it is the latter half of February but it stays until late March or early April. However, over the past twenty years the drift ice has been slowly diminishing. Some say this is the result of global warming. The people of Abashiri have come together to take action. To read more about this http://ourworld.unu.edu/en/tourism-meltdown

Tomorrow Today | A new European polar research vessel
 
03:58
Polar researchers in Europe are planning a new vessel that will be able to overcome thick sea ice and stormy seas. Designed under the auspices of the Alfred Wegener Institute,the Aurora Borealis may be the world's strongest icebreaker,a research ship which will be able to drill 1,000 meters into the ocean floor. The ship is due to be completed in 2014. The Aurora Borealis will be an icebreaker,research ship and deep-sea drilling platform in one. It's designed to take sediment samples from the polar seabed - even in thick drift ice. Designing the icebreaker was a challenge for the engineers. It's new kind of boat - and innovations had to be made,from the hull up. A model about seven meters long is being used to see if the design is seaworthy. The first tests show that at slow speed,the boat can plow through ice three metres thick. And the underside remains ice-free. A ship able to survive thick ice and on a stormy sea The next trial for the model is in ice-free waters. This time,it's a simulation of a voyage over the equator - along the African coast. There the boat would have to surmout waves ten meters high. Eberhard Wagner gives a positive summary

Seeing is believing Antarctica ICE Rebounding

March 2009 to July 2009 This video covers the Antarctica Sea Ice Rebounding with 3 different views ........................................................ BREAKING NEWS On the video I'm working on about Arctic Sea Ice I'm about sick of all the lies that the Global Warming crowd is spreading .The NSIDC has been caught in yet another lie of clear deceit . Just as in the case noted below Faulty Sensor Underestimates Arctic Sea Ice Feb. 20 2009 (Bloomberg) — A glitch in satellite sensors caused scientists to underestimate the extent of Arctic sea ice by 500,000 square kilometers (193,000 square miles), a California- size area, the U.S. National Snow and Ice Data Center said. Well what do you know the NSIDC have screwed the counts up once more. I'm hard at work on putting together the data for the Northern Hemisphere Sea Ice Concentration. As soon as I have verified all the AMSR-E data I will post the results in a brand new video for the Arctic Ice shortly . Preliminary results suggest that they have missed counted an area of over 200,000 square miles . I will take great great honor in exposing the lies this time around .The error once more seems to be due to a problem called sensor drift, this year it began in May and caused a slowly growing underestimation of sea ice extent until mid-July 2009. This problem has yet to be corrected and comes at a time when the US Government is pushing Cap & Trade Climate Legislation based on corrupted and outdated data and bogus theories by the likes of Al Gore .while suppressing the most current data and attempting to hide the truth. Why do AGW believers discount any facts that go against their religious belief? Just because AGW believers uncritically accept heavily politicized documents (IPCC Reports), does not mean everyone is so gullible. If Gore is right why doesn't he talk about the recent events that disprove his contention? "The latest global averaged satellite temperature data for June 2009 reveals yet another drop in the Earths temperature. This latest drop in global temperatures means despite his dire warnings, the Earth has cooled .74F since former Vice President Al Gore released An Inconvenient Truth in 2006. ... ... Gore has not yet addressed the simple fact that global temperatures have dropped since the release of his global warming film. ... ...There has been no significant global warming since 1995, no warming since 1998 and global cooling for the past few years. In addition, New peer-reviewed scientific studies now predict a continued lack of global warming for up to three decades as natural climate factors dominate."

NASA Says Arctic Ice is "Thinner than Ever"
 
01:52
Scientists at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration say the ice covering the Arctic Ocean is thinner than ever. Researchers with NASA and the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Colorado report that recently formed sea ice, which is more vulnerable to seasonal melt, now composes 90 percent of the Arctic ice cover. As VOA's Catherine Cannon reports, scientists say this could lead to more global warming.

Overlap of Modis TC,FC,RGB confirms significant amounts of Ice still remaining in Southern parts of Hudson Bay and Northern James Bay .The ice was in the 7/10ths to 10/10ths range above the normal concentration for the date July recap and explanation The July 2009 temperature for the contiguous United States was below the long-term average, based on records going back to 1895, according to a preliminary analysis by NOAAs National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C. The average July temperature of 73.5 degrees F was 0.8 degrees F below the 20th century average. Precipitation across the contiguous United States in July averaged 2.90 inches, which is 0.14 inches above the 1901-2000 average. An abnormally strong, persistent upper-level pattern produced more than 400 record low minimum temperatures and 1,300 record low maximum temperatures (lowest high temperature) across the nine-state area that make up the Central region. Ohio, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania experienced their coolest July on record. Kentucky, Missouri, Wisconsin, and Michigan each had their second coolest July on record, while Minnesota and Tennessee had their third coolest July on record. Arctic SSTs is cool enough to support most of the remaining sea ice . It is my thoughts this will allow for another early start to the ice season and mark the point of 2 years of sustained growth and levels above the 2007 minimum .A pretty important development in the climate change debate / Mid August and there is still significant ice in Southern parts of Hudson Bay and Northern James Bay We are quickly closing in on the 40th day of a blank spotless Sun as we drift further into a Century Class Solar Minimum Credits National Climatic Data Center / NESDIS / NOAA July Statewide Ranks NCEP / NCAR Reanalysis ~ 850mb Geopotential Height (m) Composite Mean Weekly Ice Coverage for Seaon 2009 ~ Enviroment Canada NOAA /NESDIS Edge Image Display NOAA 19 SST National Snow and Ice Data Center ~ Artic Sea Ice Extent CIS WA , Beaufort Sea Canada Basin- Western Arctic Waterway -Heavier Ice Pack than normal normal ice concentration ~ courtesy of the Canadian Ice Service MODIS Beaufort Sea Canada Basin- Western Arctic Waterway , Hudson Bay

Hokkaido Ice Breaking Cruise Tour
 
03:01
This is a vacation package for those people who enjoy nature and want to do something completely different. These thrilling activities are very popular among tourists who visit Hokkaido. Ice Breaking Cruises are available from late January to March. Please make sure to make a reservation before you go. Hokkaido is a popular destination for travelers in winter. In addition to snow and ice festivals held all over Hokkaido, "ryuhyo" (drift ice) in the Sea of Okhotsk attracts many travelers. The Okhotsk Sea in Hokkaido freezes by the cold wind from Siberia from late January through to early April. Winds break and move the layers of ice, and the ice layers get thicker. Take an Ice Breaking Cruise through the drift ice from the port of Abashiri. Here resting on the floating bergs of pack ice in the Sea of Okhotsk, drifting down from the Arctic, you could see Northern Fur Seals and eagles on the lookout for a feed. For any of our warm climate friends, this is a perfect opportunity for some great photos that nobody else back home will have.
