Polar ice cap melting

Quite nice,the grey band showing the 95% chance to have the value within that limit.

It means that we should see this low level of ice one time in every forty years.

The winter minimum makes the Siberian north-west shipping lanes cheap to maintain - strategically  important to Russia.

It makes the Russian north fleet more valuable than before, and the century old strategy to contain Russia off from the warm waters less usable .

Interesting to see as the Coriolis force drive the ice to the coast of Iceland/America on one side, and to the Asian side of the Bering on the other.
