Short summary
A new version of the Snow Melt Onset Over Arctic Sea Ice from SMMR and SSM/I-SSMIS Brightness Temperatures is now available. From this data set, a statistical summary of melt onset (MO) dates on Arctic sea ice is presented. Significant trends indicate that MO is occurring 6.6days/decade earlier in the year for the Arctic while regional trends in MO are as great as 11.8days/decade earlier in the East Siberian Sea. The Bering Sea is an outlier where MO is occurring 3.1days/decade later.
