Those are good sites. A few years ago, I stumbled across one called the Extreme Ice Survey and it was very impactful.

http://extremeicesurvey.org/


I'm unsure if it's available outside of the US since it's publicly funded broadcasting, but PBS NOVA did a special on it and it's worth the watch.

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/earth/extreme-ice.html
The video: http://video.pbs.org/video/1108763899/


EDIT: Think I found a copy on youtube.

a good subset of the arctic ice cover is the graph contained in the following link - lets you see how ice cover changed throughout the year for each year - there appears to have been a step change to lower ice cover (and remaining that way after) in 2007

a little bit wider than just Arctic ice cover : Climate Central
at first glance looks pretty comprehensive to me (although admittedly, all from a US PoV)

Well, the Conservatives, Lib Dems and Labour have agreed to co-operate on climate change regardless of the electoral outcome - shows good will, if nothing else

well, i'm sure they'll take credit for meeting their targets when they oversee the closure of the rest of the steel industry in the UK

another noteworthy addition to the arctic ice cover monitoring :

Cryosat now measure the ice cover in 3D : '3D Cryosat' tracks Arctic winter sea ice

and there's also a website : CryoSat Operational Polar Monitoring

Cryosphere Today 5/27/2016 arctic: Typical example of spring meltwater hosing from the deltas to kickstart the sea-ice breakup. I think this freshwater also disrupts the thermocline, but it's just a pet theory. If true you could predict sea ice melt from the volume of snow on land.

something very unusual is happening with the ice cover in the Arctic : the rate of increase is very slow, making the end of october ice cover the lowest ever recorded

The Arctic Is Having a Very Bad Time
