Coastal water lies along the Alaskan coast to the east. In between lies Bering Sea shelf water of intermediate salinity. Tidal currents dominate the southeastern shelf region, varying from 60% of the horizontal kinetic energy in the outer shelf to 90% in the coastal domains. About 80% of the tidal energy is semidiurnal.

Get this from a library. Selected bibliography on sea ice distribution in the coastal waters of Canada. [Canada. Geographical Branch.]. Sea ice begins as thin sheets of smooth nilas in calm water (top) or disks of pancake ice in choppy water (2 nd image). Individual pieces pile up to form rafts and eventually solidify (3 rd image).

Over time, large sheets of ice collide, forming thick pressure ridges along the margins (4 th image). (Nilas, pancake, and ice raft photographs courtesy Don Perovich, Cold Regions Author: Michon Scott.

Sea ice, frozen seawater within the Arctic Ocean and its adjacent seas as far south as China and Japan and the seas surrounding sea ice occurs as pack ice, which is very mobile, drifting across the ocean surface under the influence of the wind and ocean currents and moving vertically under the influence of tides, waves, and swells.

There is also landfast ice, or fast ice. Over the past 20 years the study of the frozen Arctic and Southern Oceans and sub-arctic seas has progressed at a remarkable pace. This third edition of Sea Ice gives insight into the very latest understanding of the how sea ice is formed, how we measure (and model) its extent, the biology that lives within and associated with sea ice and the effect of climate change on its distribution.

Sea ice arises as seawater freezes. Because ice is less dense than water, it floats on the ocean's surface (as does fresh water ice, which has an even lower density). Sea ice covers about 7% of the Earth's surface and about 12% of the world's oceans.

Much of the world's sea ice is enclosed within the polar ice packs in the Earth's polar regions: the Arctic ice pack of the Arctic Ocean. Sea ice, which covers up to 7% of the planet’s surface, is a major component of the world’s oceans, partly driving ocean circulation and global climate patterns.

It provides a habitat for a rich diversity of marine organisms, and is an extremely valuable source of information in studies of global climate change and the evolution of present day life forms.

The monthly Sea Ice Index provides a quick look at Arctic-wide changes in sea ice. It is a source for consistently processed ice extent and concentration images and data values since Monthly images show sea ice extent with an outline of the year () median extent for that month (magenta line).

The date that the last ice clears can vary significantly. Insea ice persisted in the Northeast Arm into the middle of July and the following year, sea ice in the Strait of Belle Isle did not melt until the end of July. Ice Features of the Area. Fast ice for most coastal.

Canada’s sea levels are rising at a dramatic rate, according to a new climate change report leaked this week, and that has B.C.’s coastal cities worried. Sea ice is more than just frozen water. During formation, pockets of brine form within the ice, providing habitat for bacteria and algae.

These ecological communities remain relatively dormant during the darkness of winter, but when spring arrives with more available light and warmer temperatures, the ice ecosystem becomes much more active.

How sea ice influences the oceanography of underlying waters and the influences that sea ice has on humans living in Arctic regions are also discussed. Featuring 12 new chapters, this edition follows two previous editions ( and ), and the need for this latest update shows just how rapidly the science of sea ice is developing.

Canada has the longest coastlines of any country in the world (60 km excluding islands, including all measurable islands).
