Temperature anomalies continue in the Arctic

The image below shows the current sea ice's thickness, i.e. for February 2012. The animation illustrates that much of the sea ice is moving along with the sea current, flowing out of the Arctic Ocean along the edges of Greenland into the Atlantic Ocean.

Abrupt release of methane in the Arctic in late 2011? 

The animation below shows daily satellite pictures of methane descending down the Arctic, from the North Pole into North America over a period of 13 days (November 26, 2011, to December 8, 2011). Distances traveled daily appear to match average wind speeds for the respective area at this time of the year.
