Ice Taking Hold in Barents Sea

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.
