Totally unfamiliar wide region of sea ice between North of Greenland and Ellesmere

~I have no explanation for this
~One thing for sure,  it was not air temperature driven
~Highly likely abnormal under sea ice ocean temperatures

  First we look at 2012:

  Quite normal sea ice in densest pack ice field even for August 5 2012, then  a very terrible year for sea ice,  now look at this:

   This August 5 2018 sea ice area seems awfully weak,  even ready to melt off completely.  All I know is that there is a tidal current going towards the Strait between Greenland and Ellesmere Island,  it usually has a semi-circular look about 1/10 the size of this area.   WD August 5 2018
