Sea Ice Data

A couple of exercises for chapter 5 refer to a dataset of Arctic sea ice extent, and we also plan to add an online case study on regression to the mean where this will be one of the examples.  The data comes from the National Snow and Ice Data Center Arctic Sea Ice News and Analysis.   The dataset is more completely summarized in the graphic below.
