Clay-mineral and grain-size distributions in surface sediments of the White Sea (Arctic Ocean): Indicators of sediment sources and transport processes Arctic shelf of western Eurasia. Norsk. Scientists have found surprising evidence of rapid climate change in the Arctic: In the middle of the Arctic Ocean near the North Pole, they discovered that the levels of radium have almost dou. Paleogeographic maps showing reconstructed environments of the Eurasian Arctic shelf and coastal zone during the last glacial maximum (18, yr B.P.) were compiled within the project IGCP "Sea-level correlations and applications". The reconstruction shows conspicuous difference between eastern and western sectors of the Arctic shelf of Cited by: Category:Environment of the Arctic only covers the area north of the Arctic Circle (66° 33’N).

This is related to cryospheric changes Cited by:   The pattern of key Cenozoic magnetic isochrons (24, 20, 18, 13, 6, 5, 2a) is constructed for the entire Eurasia Basin. In the western half of the basin, this pattern is consistent with a recently published scheme [16]. In its eastern half, magnetic isochrons are determined in detail for the first time and traced up to the Laptev Sea by: John McCannon's "A History of the Arctic: Nature, Exploration and Exploitation" is a monograph of exceptional quality, which should be read by anyone, irrespective of academic background, who is interested in understanding or cares for the future of this vastly important region of our by:

[1] The East Siberian Arctic Shelf (ESAS), which includes the Laptev Sea, the East Siberian Sea, and the Russian part of the Chukchi Sea, has not been considered to be a methane (CH 4) source to hydrosphere or atmosphere because subsea permafrost, which underlies most of the ESAS, was believed, first, not to be conducive to methanogenesis and, second, to act as an impermeable lid, .   Ancient Ice Complex deposits outcropping along the ∼7,kilometre-long coastline of the East Siberian Arctic Shelf (ESAS)4,5, and associated shallow subsea permafrost6,7, are two . Last Glacial landscape supported a unique mix of large species, now extinct or living in non-overlapping biomes, including rhino, bison, lion, reindeer, horse, muskox and mammoth so called “mammoth steppe” 2,3,4 community thrived for approximately , years without major changes, and then became extinct by the end of Pleistocene, aro years BP 5, by: shelf and upper slope in this area of the western Arctic. Preliminary data on the origin and fate of the shelf-edge boundary currents indicate that the outer shelf of the Herald Valley outflow site is filled with cold, dense, Pacific-origin winter water as it flows eastward, forming a shelfbreak jet.
