~With top of sea ice snow curtain melted, the status at the Atlantic Front is revealed
~It is broken up , ready to move anywhere, at the winds whim
Deep past the Atlantic ice front between Spitzbergen and Franz Josef Islands lies a state of loose pack ice, ready for the clearing, only if the winds team up with the sea current. And so it is just a matter of synergistic coincidence as to whether a massive melt will show at end of September. NASA EOSDIS June 20-23 2020 loop depicts a rather unsteady flow, moving one way one day, the opposite direction the next. Once a certain towards the South wind pattern hits this region for about 1 week, the clearing will be done. leaving sea ice even further towards the Pole more vulnerable.
The survival of 2020 sea ice is rather precarious at this moment. WD June 24,2020
