A Nasa satellite has documented startling changes in Arctic sea ice cover between 2004 and 2005.

The extent of “perennial” ice – thick ice which remains all year round – declined by 14%, losing an area the size of Pakistan or Turkey.

The last few decades have seen summer ice shrink by about 0.7% per year.
