Arctic Sea Ice Extent minimum reached

After a couple of days of substantial ice increase, and given the time of the month, I think it is safe to say that the ice extent minimum has been reached. Both IJIS JAXA and NSIDC agree on the date - 16 September. The numbers were:

DateExtent million sq km
IJIS JAXA16 Sept3.489063
NSIDC16 Sept3.36855
