I can only find graphs of Arctic sea ice volume from the Polar Science Center. Does anyone know if the data is available online in numerical form?|
I don't know where you can find the data but you could just guestimate.... |
And use this
Just put in the lines so you can make more accurate estimates...
Neven's Sea Ice blog has a ratio of area/extent (referred to as CAPIE/Compactness) to help deduce volume; discussed more here.
I don't believe the volume data gets released to the public by the Polar Science Center, U of Bremen or NSIDC as its too rudimentary as yet. Cryosat-2 data, when released, will be the definitive word on volume for the first time.
