Early ice in the Arctic   Science

It looks like Russia may have acted too quickly in establish an Arctic shipping route because ships are having difficulty with new winter ice.

Over the past years, shipping along the Russian northern coast has proceeded rather smoothly in late October and early November. But not this year. Large parts of the remote Arctic waters were in late October covered by sea-ice. And the white sheet is quickly getting thicker and harder to navigate.

I suspect there will be different thicknesses of Arctic ice, some of which will interfere with shipping, but I would be surprised if that became the norm.

I have been following it for about fifteen years and sometimes it thins and sometimes it thickens. Beijing just got a very early snow and Longyearbyen is running colder than last year.
