Summary
Abstract: Monthly average sea ice concentration for February to May, 2007 and June to September 2007 show regionally where the ice edge for the month in question equator ward/pole ward of the 29-year mean. Based on the 29 year time series (1979-2007), the following rankings were observed for monthly averaged Southern Ocean sea ice extent from January to August 2007: January 2007 was the fourth lowest ...

Purpose: Year 2007’s sea ice extent, concentration and timing of sea ice advance for the months February to September were analyzed within the context of variability observed over 1979-2007. The analyses were based on passive microwave satellite derived sea ice observations available from the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boulder Colorado.
