In just the last week, the progression of ice extents in Barents Sea is impressive. The first image from MASIE is January 27, 2017. h/t Pethefin
Then a week later on February 3 we see that Svalbard is almost enclosed.
In that one week Arctic ice gained 240k km2 up to 14.3 M km2, including Barents Sea adding 145k km2. Thanks to MASIE we can see Arctic ice growing before our eyes.
One Week in Barents Sea shows Svalbard under siege.
