Seems the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI), has Sea Ice Extent readings [at > 30% concentration], which now mid August, already matches past *low* record of 2007, which bottomed mid September  [See appended file link below]. Historically at least 2-4 weeks of melt to go, with data existing that these minima could hit as late as end of September. Oceans are hot. The Heat Content keeps rising, and eventually this is affecting every nook and cranny of the planet.

Addendum. The actual number, in the fringe was 87K Km square above the absolute record low.
