Sea Ice from Barrow

UAF's Barrow sea ice webcam has been down for a couple of weeks, but came back to life Wednesday. Here's the view Thursday morning, looking northwest from downtown Barrow. Some of the water visible is melt water on top of still stranded shorefast ice, but with lots of open water southwest of Barrow, the ice will likely go quickly, especially this weekend when winds become more easterly.
