    South Coast Highlights. On this South Coast adventure, we set out to explore the most visited attractions in the land of fire and ice. For starters, we’ll drive through farmlands and a few cozy little towns to Seljalandsfoss, one of Iceland’s most well-known the weather allows, you can walk behind the graceful cascade that drops 60 m ( ft) and peek through the crystal wall /5(29). A reduction in sea-ice extent will promote strong Arctic warming through the ice-albedo feedback mechanism and may influence weather systems beyond the Arctic (e.g., Francis et al., ).Changes in ice cover and freshwater flux out of the Arctic Ocean may also affect circulation in the North Atlantic, which has profound influence on climate in Europe and North America (Seager et al., Cited by:

Nunatak, isolated mountain peak that once projected through a continental ice sheet or an Alpine-type ice cap. Because they usually occur near the margin of an ice sheet, nunataks were thought to be glacial refuges for vegetation and centres for subsequent reoccupation of the land. Later studies.

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. Venture far above the Arctic Circle, in a land where the sun never sets and polar bears roam, with the Best of the Western Arctic: Canada and Greenland itinerary.

You’ll be exploring the northerly shores of Canada’s Baffin Island and the western coast of Greenland, searching for the wildlife and visiting the communities that call this mysterious realm home.

“There it was, the land under 80 degrees, a land of stern magnificence, where icebergs rear up almost to the very mountaintops, and mountain rises above mountain; there it was, inviolate, alive to the raucous voice of millions of birds, the continuous staccato bark of foxes, the castanet click as the hoofs of great herds of deer fell in a swinging trot; there it was, surrounded by waters.

As discussed in our last report, Arctic sea ice extent in is on pace to set a new record minimum that could be substantially below the record. White areas in Figure 1 define ice extent for Aug The magenta line shows the median August sea ice extent for to   Two new studies add support to the idea that climate warming in the Arctic and melting sea ice may be increasingly laying the groundwork for blockbuster East Coast snowstorms.

Split Tooth by Tanya Tagaq Viking, $ Reviewed by Paddy Eason It's my impression that many readers of the Arctic Book Review are seeking stirring tales of exploration from long that basis, this book - which contains enthusiastic teenage solvent abuse, erotic encounters with wild animals and gleeful retribution against human bullies and predators - may not be everyone's cup of tea.

Attention Arctic Refuge Visitors: Due to increased risk of polar bear encounters, avoid hiking, camping, or paddling along barrier islands and coastline. Due to low seasonal ice conditions there are currently reports of increased polar bear sightings along the Eastern Beaufort Sea Coast between.

Arctic facts. The Arctic is located at the northernmost part of our planet. Scientists usually define the Arctic as the area above the ‘Arctic Circle’ — an imaginary line that circles around the top of the globe. The Arctic consists of the Arctic Ocean and parts of Canada, Russia, the USA, Greenland, Norway, Finland, Sweden and Iceland.

The Arctic (/ ˈ ɑːr k t ɪ k / or / ˈ ɑːr t ɪ k /) is a polar region located at the northernmost part of Arctic consists of the Arctic Ocean, adjacent seas, and parts of Alaska (United States), Finland, Greenland (), Iceland, Northern Canada, Norway, Russia, and within the Arctic region has seasonally varying snow and ice cover, with predominantly treeless.

The Northwest Passage is one of Canada’s most exciting chapters of discovery, history and exploration. The Northwest Passage is a sea corridor connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans through Canada’s Arctic Archipelago islands and along the northern-most coast of North America.

This paper explores the controversy surrounding the periodwhich was a period of substantial warming in the Arctic. Historic variations in Arctic sea ice is a series that attempts to determine the arctic warming events through the Holocene which commenced some years ago.

Part 1 covered the warm period from approx. to Sea ice concentration data from regular aerial surveys of ice in the eastern Arctic by the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute, St.

Petersburg, Russia, beginning in Sea ice edge positions for Newfoundland and the Canadian Maritime Region from observations, for to tive.

This paper provides an overview of the Arctic sea-ice history spanning multiple climate regimes, from the early Cenozoic to present. Background on Arctic sea-ice cover Ice extent, thickness, drift, and duration Arctic sea-ice cover attains its maximum seasonal extent in March and shrinks through spring and summer to a minimumCited by:   “I’m used to my Ob kind,” said Dmitry Kuybin, who fishes on that gulf, a mile-long estuary along the eastern coast of the Yamal Peninsula that flows into the Arctic Ocean.

On the morning after our C arrived, we took off on that first IceBridge flight. Our route from the west coast was plotted across the island, due southeast, toward Greenland’s rugged eastern coast, where dark, jagged peaks jut up like huge animal teeth from a prehistoric crust of snow-covered ice.

It would be a long ride. Arctic sea ice loss The area covered by Arctic sea ice at least four years old has decreased fromsq miles in September to 42, sq. So much ice has melted this summer that the north-west passage across the top of Canada is fully navigable, and observers say the north-east.

Few countries are preparing for this reality except China. "Enthralling In the Kingdom of Ice is a brilliant explosion of narrative non-fiction: detailed, moving, harrowing, as gripping as any well-paced thriller but a lot more interesting because it is also true Too often American heroism is presented at one-dimensional success against the odds This is a much more subtle and rewarding book, an account of magnificent disaster, of courage Cited by: 2.
