By Paul Homewood http://nsidc.org/data/seaice_index/index.html Antarctic sea ice extent continues to run at well above average, with March extent 2nd highest on record, behind 2008. http://nsidc.org/data/seaice_index/index.html Sea ice ice grew rapidly during the month, as temperatures dived, adding 2.7 million sq km. At the end of March, extent was 1.2 million sq km above average, or 22% higher. As a result, global sea ice area, according to Cryosphere Today, finished the month slightly above the long term mean. http://arctic.atmos.uiuc.edu/cryosphere/IMAGES/global.daily.ice.area.withtrend.jpg
