Arctic Sea Ice Extent January 30, 2020

January 30, 2020: Over the past 2 weeks the sea ice has increased by 5.10% from the level on 1/16/2020 of 13.572 M km2 to 14.301 M km2 for this week. The blue line for 2020 on the plot is now quite clear, and at this point, we're above the sea ice extent level over the past few years; kind of interesting.
