Near 80 North super fast sea ice movement

~12 nautical miles a day is hardly dense pack ice speed
~Very fluid movement precedes rapid melting

August 15-16 2018 rapid movement of sea ice at about 80 degrees North 151 West, moving towards the NE. Look at biggest ice pan next to NASA worldview right hand lower corner box on 15th,  it moved 12 nautical miles in a day,  from experience of 2018 preceding ice now melted areas,  this kind of speed is a precursor to possible rapid melting,  because the ice pans,  especially the smaller ones,  are surrounded by water... wd August 16 2018
