This chart over the last 36 hours (31-01AUGUST2019) is from the Danish Polar Portal. Denmark, despite its continental European roots, has had a substantial interest in the Arctic through its heritage of political control over Greenland and Iceland. Today, it is one of the few nations openly monitoring every aspect of the the changes occurring to the Arctic from Global Warming and Climate Change.
I want you to look at the surface sea temperatures for a moment. Moving on the 50E-70E longitudes (right side of chart) to the Pole, you see how extremely HOT the B-K Sea Region has become. The Barents and Kara Seas stand at a nominal +10ºC (orange-red). There is no sea-ice in this region now. The sea-ice minimum of September is still one and a half months away.
Compare the OSI SAF lotto that of NOAA. Essentially the same for the same date, however, this Danish Chart seems starker as it has a finer grai, measuring every 5% of thickness, as opposed to every 10%.
