(The plus sign marks the North Pole.) The pink outline indicates the median ice extent in September from 1979 to 2000.

It turns out that no record was set this year, however: when the melting bottomed out in mid-September, the ice extent for 2011 turned out to be the second-lowest of any year since satellite measurements began in 1979.
