It would be interesting, let's say, if you assumed average ice displacements over the winter, to make a map showing how little multi-year ice we will have next spring

Well, one could make an animation of ENVISAT radar images (which gives a bit of a clue where the thicker MYI is), like Arctic.io did a while back for the 2010-2011 winter.

But I think I'll wait for Maslanik's analysis which should come out in October or November.

I am concerned about what will happen after Aqua (or the AMSR-E package) fails or becomes unreliable. Aqua is now in year 10 of a planned 6-year mission.

With the current mood in the US Congress, there is no assurance there will be a follow-on mission to replace any component of the Earth Observing System.

Perhaps Big Oil will demand it to safeguard their arctic rigs?

The only thing lost will be public, freely-available information. Propriety commercial information will continue to be for sale.

Bought any RadarSat-2 imagery recently?

I'm sure somebody will start protesting. When they do, I'll do all I can to support them. I'm sure I'll be able to count on this blog's community when the time comes.

It's of paramount importance that the Arctic gets monitored as much as possible, not less.
