  1. You kill it everytime with the stats I love it. Gotta figure out what you use to come up with those because that is really interesting.
  2. Unfortunately I dont have the PDF version just the written copy, 70-80 pages long, so if I can figure out a way to get that into PDF from work ill gladly set it up and send it to you. As far as I know the masters program, depending on what you go for, is not heavily math based you will probably have to do some deriving of sorts and maybe some upper level math but as far as I know there wont be a math class you would have to take but again it depends on what you end up going for in your masters program. Many of times they list the courses you will have to take under the program and you can always talk with an advisor about those courses if you are unsure. Math is rough in some aspects but I would see how you do for the rest of your degree program now and see if you can do so further on but yes masters seems to be the way to go for now and then you can always work for your doctorate.
  3. Ill see if I have a copy, PDF, that a fellow student made to help us better understand MATLAB but luckily it was just introduced to us in instruments and was not really used. We had to go about with learning FORTRAN and Python. Python was probably the easiest to learn and have heard it would be more so used down the road havent had to do much but im not in forecasting or working with models im currently just an observer. One thing I will say is that I recommend going for a masters once you are done because not many will take consideration of you with a BS unfortunately. Currently in the process of doing so myself. As well as trying to diversify yourself so by taking courses normally people would not take and learning more coding languages.
  4. We need those warmer subsurface waters to calm that are being pumped into Arctic or massive release of heat from those waters, which seems unlikely more of chipping away process, as well. System cant sustain something if the region it is at has to work with has also been on average 1-2C warmer.
  5. I wouldnt really call a strong solar flare, release of energy, an uptick in solar activity.
  6. Gotcha thanks for the little tidbit on the interactive graph and yea i have frequented that forum quite a bit to get an idea and has immensely helped.
  7. Where do you get your area data from? and im guessing the 4.61 was from today? because last i saw it was 4.636 but yes Jaxa is hovering still right around that 4.48-4.5 region so yes that will have to be monitored. Thanks for the thoughts still trying to understand all about the arctic and its influences among many other things.
  8. If I am seeing it right it looks like 9/9 for extent at 4.47 according to this one https://ads.nipr.ac.jp/vishop/#/extent NSIDC has 4.636 as of 9/13 with slight gains yesterday https://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/charctic-interactive-sea-ice-graph/ Cant seem to find a good interactive map for area or volume but im pretty sure someone posted area may have been back at the beginning of september?
  9. Probably pretty close to hitting their flying hours with how much they have been updating
  10. Since we are getting real close now we have to ask the question do we see the large increase in extent as we have seen over the past couple of years at the beginning of the season or do we actually allow some heat to escape into the atmosphere from the ocean.
  11. Looks to me as though the energy from our trough in the NE is swinging out allowing possible a slightly further E track of the S/w in MS/AL region. Should be interesting to watch
  12. So which is which? I'm a little confused.
  13. DCA -0.5 NYC -0.6 BOS -0.8 ORD +0.4 ATL +0.2 IAH +0.6 DEN +0.8 PHX +1.1 SEA +1.3
  14. Thanks
