  • This prediction used data from satellite microwave sensors AMSR-E and AMSR2, as well as the first report prediction. We analyzed the ice motion from January 1, 2014 up to June 10, 2014. In addition to this ice motion, sea ice concentration on June 20, 2014 is used for the prediction. Sea ice cover in the Arctic starts retreating in May; interannual difference in the shape of ice cover becomes obvious after it. We found that sea ice concentration in June correlates strongly with that after July.In this report we are showing the predicted ice cover from July 1, 2014 to September 11, 2014, calculated by the multiple regression analysis based on the ice motion during January-June (please see the first report for detailed method) and sea ice concentration on June 20, 2014.
