The Arctic Ocean occupies a roughly circular basin and covers an area of ab, km 2 (5,, sq mi), almost the size of Antarctica. The coastline is 45, km (28, mi) long. It is the only ocean smaller than Russia, which has a land area of 16,, km 2 (6,, sq mi). It is surrounded by the land masses of Eurasia, North America, Greenland, and by several islands. Description of various ice charts, availability dates, and link to the current ice charts. These real-time information products generally serve strategic (day-to-day) or tactical (longer-term) planning and operational purposes. Included here are Ice analysis charts, Iceberg analysis charts, Regional ice charts, Regional ice chart departure from normal concentration, St. Lawrence river ice.

Recent modeling predicts some of the same climatic and oceanographic events recognized in the oldest sediment of the Arctic Ocean. The sequence of events from a warm Arctic Ocean to an ice‐covered condition involved circulation changes, seasonality, and uneven spreading rates that increased North Atlantic‐Arctic ventilation. Arctic Ocean The Arctic Ocean consists essentially of two large basins sepa-rated by the Lomonosov Ridge. The Amerasia Basin covers the Canada Basin, and the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas and Eurasia Basin includes the Amundsen and Nansen Basins and the Bar-ents and Laptev Sea. Most of the oceanic crust was generated.

During the late twenties various spot oceanographic observations were made by observers carrying out investigations in marine biology for the Fisheries Re.

Oceanography (compound of the Greek words ὠκεανός meaning "ocean" and γράφω meaning "write"), also known as oceanology, is the study of the physical and biological aspects of the is an important Earth science, which covers a wide range of topics, including ecosystem dynamics; ocean April-May, waves, and geophysical fluid dynamics; plate tectonics and the geology of the sea.

Materials used were collected September to September near Igloolik, northwest Foxe Basin, in the Canadian arctic. A single station, about one mile from shore and 52 m deep, was occupied. Cold, arctic surface water, originating in the upper m of the Arctic Ocean, flows out of the Arctic basin through the Canadian Arctic Archipelago and between Canada and Greenland towards the Atlantic Ocean.

In Baffin Bay, Davis Strait and neighbouring regions, it mixes with warmer water from the Atlantic to form subarctic water. Phipps' expedition into the fringe of the Eurasia Basin in marked the beginning of Arctic Ocean research in the modern sense, while a century later Nansen's Fram drifted across the Eurasia Basin.

Arctic Ocean, smallest of the world’s oceans, centring approximately on the North Arctic Ocean and its marginal seas—the Chukchi, East Siberian, Laptev, Kara, Barents, White, Greenland, and Beaufort and, according to some oceanographers, also the Bering and Norwegian seas—are the least-known basins and bodies of water in the world ocean as a result of their remoteness, hostile.

In Augustthe Canadian Geographical Journal ran a feature that essentially inventories the resources of the eastern Arctic. Described as a “barren, bleak and little-developed region,” the region was cut off from the rest of the country in the winter, “except,” J.

Within the last few years, a significant amount of interest has developed in the Arctic Ocean and its seafloor features. Three factors are important in driving this new level of interest in the Arctic.

The Arctic Ocean is unique among the world’s oceans for many reasons. It is largely ice-covered (much of it year-round, the rest seasonally) and it is relatively isolated from the rest of the world’s oceans, much like the Mediterranean Sea. Follow the water as it enters and exits the Arctic Ocean.

important role they play in the Canadian Arctic marine ecosystem. There are other fish species that are important to the Arctic ma-rine environment. For example, sand lances (Ammodytes species) are a very important food for many of the larger marine animals in the Arctic Ocean.

They have been found in the stomachs of many. Arctic Ocean - Arctic Ocean - Topography of the ocean floor: From the late 19th century, when the Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen first discovered an ocean in the central Arctic, until the middle of the 20th century, it was believed that the Arctic Ocean was a single large basin.

Explorations after revealed the true complex nature of the ocean floor. Recently, however, much greater standing stocks of zooplankton were reported for the Canadian Basin of the Arctic Ocean during the summer ofwith biomass of the same order of magnitude as that found in the Greenland Sea and 8–10 times that observed previously in the Arctic Ocean and representing 48% of the total POC (Wheeler et al.Ocean Station P (50 00°N, 00°W, depth metres) was operated as an ocean weather station from 19 December, through 20 June, The first oceanographic observation there, in the form of a bathythermograph cast, was made on 19 December, (Leipper et al., ).Oceanographic and meteorological observations conducted during the Fram’s drift refuted the idea that the waters of the Arctic Ocean were shallow.

The data collected established the structure and origin of the ocean’s water masses, and showed the influence of the earth’s daily rotation on ice movement.
