This summer’s Arctic sea-ice shrank to its second lowest ever extent in the era of satellite observation.
The floes withdrew to just under 3.74 million sq km (1.44 million sq miles) last week, preliminary data indicates.
The only time this minimum has been beaten in the 42-year spacecraft record was 2012 when the pack ice was reduced to 3.41 million sq km.
Shorter autumn days and encroaching cold mean the floes are now starting to regrow.

‘Shell structures’ found in the Milky Way could be a clue to the history of our galaxy – The Independent
Shell structures in our Milky Way are evidence of a huge collision between it and another dwarf galaxy, astronomers have found.
The crash happened nearly 3 billion years ago, when the dwarf galaxy fell into the middle the Milky Way and was torn apart by the collision.
But the merger has left behind evidence in the shape of formations, the first such “shell structures” ever found in the Milky Way, that shed more light on the collision as well as potentially explaining other phenomena.
