Annual Arctic Sea Ice Volume the Lowest Ever

By the way, as of the end of May, PIOMAS's estimates gives an annualized Arctic sea ice volume of 13.17 Kkm3 -- its lowest value ever.

(That's the 365-day moving average.) That's a 2.2% decline in one year, and a 35% decline in 10 years.

(My earlier estimate is for the entire record, but in recent years the ice is melting at a faster-then-linear rate.)
