Arctic Death Spiral for May 2013 made from PIOMAS data.
I calculated the soundtrack from the data using 500km³ per semitone using a piano.

As an avant garde piece derived from real world data this is quite interesting, and emphasizes the downward trend, but it leaves much to be desired as music!
(If you don't like it, just mute!)

The rate of ice loss in the Arctic is staggering. Since 1979, the volume of Summer Arctic sea ice has declined by more than 80% and accelerating faster than scientists believed it would, or even could melt.
The first ice-free summer in the Arctic Ocean is expected to happen between 2016 and 2022.

About the data: Sea Ice Volume is calculated using the Pan-Arctic Ice Ocean Modeling and Assimilation System (PIOMAS, Zhang and Rothrock, 2003) developed at APL/PSC.
Source data for this graph is available from http://psc.apl.washington.edu/wordpre...
