The Canadian Arctic Rift System is a major North American geological structure extending from the Labrador Sea in the southeast through Davis Strait, Baffin Bay and the Arctic Archipelago in the northwest. It consists of a series of interconnected rifts that formed during the Paleozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoic eras. Mapping within the Canadian Arctic Archipelago: Ian Church, John Hughes Clarke, Doug Cartwright, Steve Brucker, James Muggah, Ocean Mapping Group, University of New Brunswick, Canada and Steve Blasco, Geological Survey of Canada ( MB) Initial cross-over analysis of Amerasian Basin gravity and bathymetry datasets.

The IPY project examines the amount of fresh water, sea water and sea ice that passes from the Arctic Ocean to the Labrador Sea through the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. Led by Dr. Humfrey Melling, CAT is measuring ocean currents, salinity, temperature, ice drift and thickness in four of the ocean gateways between the Arctic and the Atlantic. The vast Arctic region contains nine proven petroleum provinces with giant resources but over half of the sedimentary basins are completely undrilled, making the region the last major frontier for conventional oil and gas exploration. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the geology and the petroleum potential of the Arctic.

Abstract. There are few geological and geophysical data from the Arctic continental margins. Accordingly, the morphology of the Arctic Ocean Basin and extrapolation of known terrestrial structure becomes very by:

The Arctic Archipelago, also known as the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, groups together all islands lying to the north of the Canadian continental mainland excluding Greenland (an autonomous territory of Denmark).

Situated in the northern extremity of North America and covering about 1, km 2 (, sq mi), this group of 36, islands in the Arctic Sea Location: Northern Canada.

Oceanographic Survey of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago book The Canadian Arctic Archipelago (CAA), which represents ∼20% of the total shelf area in the Arctic (Jakobsson,Jakobsson, ) is ideally located to better understand the nature of this thermal gradient because it connects the western and the eastern part of the Arctic Ocean.

Moreover, relatively high biogenic flux allows the use of Cited by: Holocene paleoceanography of the Northwest Passage, Canadian Arctic Archipelago Article in Quaternary Science Reviews 29() December. Naval Postgraduate School, Dec. A dense network of conductivity-temperature-depth measurements was conducted from Baffin Bay northward to 82 deg 09 min N at the entrance to the Lincoln Sea, in the most comprehensive physical oceanographic survey ever performed in the northern Baffin Bay-Nares Strait region.

[Slide 2] The presentation is divided into three parts. Part I is an overview of early expeditions to the High Arctic, and their political consequences at the time. Freshwater export from the Arctic can have dramatic impacts on ocean circulation inside the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, as well as globally when it.

Pennsylvanian (Bashkirian) to Lower Permian (Kungurian) slope carbonates and cherts are widespread in the Sverdrup Basin of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago (Fig. 1A). Up to km of peripheral shelf carbonates pass basinward into condensed basinal deposits through a well-developed shelf margin and adjacent slope (Fig.

Arctic vegetation is composed of plants such as dwarf shrubs, graminoids, herbs, lichens, and mosses, which all grow relatively close to the ground, forming example of a dwarf shrub is the one moves northward, the amount of warmth available for plant growth decreases considerably.

Burton Island’s role in the summer of would be to conduct hydrographic and oceanographic studies in the Arctic, including charting the waters and land in the Canadian Archipelago using EPI technology to greatly improve accuracy, studying ice and water movements, and correcting existing nautical charts, some of which were more than   The unique geographical position and oceanographic properties of Hudson Bay make it very different from other Arctic regions that polar bears inhabit.

Hudson Bay is a large shallow basin that freezes over every winter - somewhat like an enormous salt-water lake. This ice cover melts completely every summer, in part because it is well south.

A Northwest Passage Journey Finds Little Ice and Big Changes After decades of travel in the Far North, E ’s Arctic correspondent joins a voyage through the Northwest Passage and witnesses a world being transformed, with ice disappearing, balmy temperatures becoming common, and alien invaders – from plastic waste to new diseases – on.

The first oceanographic observations recorded in the Canadian Eastern Arctic were taken by Sir W. Parry in Lancaster Sound in Since that time oceanographic reconnaissance has been extended throughout the Eastern Arctic including Baffin Bay, Lancaster Sound, Foxe Basin, and.

The LIS advanced northwestward from the Canadian mainland inundating both the Beaufort Sea and adjoining marine channels and islands of the western Canadian Arctic Archipelago (CAA). There, the LIS coalesced with the southern margin of the Innuitian Ice Sheet (IIS) that inundated the Queen Elizabeth Islands (QEI) to the by: This is one of the little-known areas of the Canadian Arctic, though it is proving to be biologically rich and numerous polynyas in northern Foxe Basin support high densities of bearded seals and the largest walrus herd in Canada (over 6, individuals).

Ringed seal and polar bear are common, with north Southampton Island as one of the highest-density polar bear denning. Three possible routes were considered - directly across the Arctic Ocean, the Northwest Passage (from Davis Strait, through the channels of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, and then along the coast of Alaska) and the Northeast Passage (along the Eurasian coast, also known as the Northern Sea Route) (Figure ).Price: $.

For this report the Canadian Arctic (Fig. 1) is considered to include all the main- land shoreline lying between Cape Chidley (60'25'N., 64'25'W.) and the Yukon- Alaska border (69'40'N., "OO'W.). Northward from these two points in a rough triangle is the Canadian Arctic Archipelago of over 70 islands.Canadian sector of the Arctic Ocean.

The infrastructure will also support ship-based studies of the response of the coastal inland zone of the Canadian Arctic to climate forc-ing, and epidemiologic studies of the impact of climate change on the health of North-erners. Planned programs include: Canadian Arctic Shelf Exchange Study (CASES,   These data indicate Nares Strait Atlantic Intermediate Water and Arctic Basin Polar Water to be derived from Arctic Basin waters via the Canadian Archipelago, whereas the West Greenland Current (WGC) is the source of the comparatively dilute West Greenland Current Atlantic Intermediate Water and West Greenland Current Polar Water :
