N70 - N80 FDDs Pacific side

Freezing Degree Days

Temperatures on the Pacific side from N70 to N80

Data from Nick Stokes'  moyhu arctic applet

Climatology would indicate about 890 accumulated FDDs to date
2016 appears to be around 400 accumulated FDDs

Using Lebedev new ice thickness reduces from 0.84m to 0.52m
Using Berillo new ice thickness reduces from 0.68m to 0.43m

Neither of these takes into account the actual date of first ice formation, this means they are likely biased high.
