this year seems to have retained a good ice cover so far with ice loss slowing right down

unless theres a sudden huge loss then i think this will be the most ice retained since 2006?

Main Ice website http://www.natice.noaa.gov/ims/
Sea Ice Graph http://www.natice.noaa.gov/ims/images/sea_ice_only.jpg
Asia Europe Sea/Ice archive 2013 http://www.natice.noaa.gov/pub/ims/ims_ ... Asia/2013/
Asia Europe Sea/Ice archive 2012 http://www.natice.noaa.gov/pub/ims/ims_ ... Asia/2012/

By adding the year at the end of the link you may be able to go back further, all the way to 1998

graph shows there to be more ice this year than last

though i agree you cant really tell by comparing the images

a very 2006 feel about the whole year really both here and up in the arctic?

Is the website the same as:
http://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/

that looks a good clean site and to quote from it:

"The end of this year’s Arctic sea ice melt season is imminent and the minimum extent will be slightly lower than last year’s, making it the sixth lowest extent in the satellite record. Earlier in the month, a small area of the Laptev Sea ice edge was within five degrees of the North Pole. This appears to be the result of persistent southerly winds from central Siberia.
Meanwhile, Antarctic sea ice is poised to set a record maximum this year, now at 19.7 million square kilometers (7.6 million square miles) and continuing to increase"

Looks like you need to go to south for ice
