We are at the end of the melt season 2013, and the floating ice at the north pole is definitely more extensive thn last year. but it needs to be mentioned that last year was a record breaking low year. if you look closely at the graph you will understand that more-than-really-low is still much lower than average.
it will be interesting to watch how this trends over the next few years. The prediction is that we will eventually within the next 20 or 30 years see a summer sea in the arctic that is essentially ice free, a thing that has never occurred in human history.
