(3) What does the sediment record say about conditions of the Arctic Ocean in the post-Jurassic world? Answers to these questions suggest a significant role for the Arctic Ocean in post-Jurassic paleoclimatology and, equally important, point to possible future dramatic climate changes if the Arctic Ocean environment is altered.

Science and the Canadian Arctic: A Century of Exploration, by Trevor H. Levere. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, , reprinted Reviewed by Jonathan Dore. CUP has now printed a paperback edition of Trevor Levere's encyclopedic survey of the first century of science in Canada's high Arctic, first published in “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.

Adventurous travellers are drawn to remote Baffin Island, with its bowhead whales and Inuit communities.

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 comprises much of the territory of Northern Canada—most of Nunavut and part of the Northwest Territories. The Canadian Arctic Archipelago is showing some effects of global warming, with some computer estimates determining that melting there Location: Northern Canada. The fauna and flora of polar regions: Arctic. The Arctic is the region situated north of the Arctic Circle. It encompasses North America’s far north, Greenland, northern Europe and Asia, and the Arctic Ocean. This ocean is covered with pack ice that never completely thaws. The South Polar region of the Cretaceous comprised the continent of East Gondwana–modern day Australia and Antarctica–a product of the break-up of southern region, during this time, was much warmer than it is today, ranging from perhaps 4–8 °C (39–46 °F) in the latest Cretaceous Maastrichtian in what is now southeastern Australia.   The Arctic (limited here to the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, Greenland, Iceland, Svalbard, and other polar islands) is a northern geographical region defined by harsh climate. But the Earth's surface is constantly changing as a result of continental drift, explained by the theory of plate tectonics.
