Baffin Bay is a gigantic counter-clockwise gyre. Currents sweep north along the coast of Greenland and capture the icebergs calved off its tidewater glaciers. These bergs, some of them as big as Manhattan Island, are carried hundreds of miles north to Thule and then double back as the current carries them south along the east Baffin coast.

Graphs for 30 July sea ice coverage (CIS, click to enlarge), for Hudson Bay, Davis Strait and Foxe Basin: In contrast, when you look at Northwest Hudson Bay (see the red insert map on the graph below) for 11 June (7 weeks ago), ice coverage over that portion of the bay in was about the same as it Davis Strait and Foxe Basin in (which apparently had the.

Foxe Basin Polar Bear Aerial Survey 4 INTRODUCTION The boundaries of the Foxe Basin (FB) polar bear sub-population appear to encompass the northern part of Hudson Bay, the western end of Hudson Strait and Foxe Basin 1961.

book (Figure 1). This region is seasonally ice-free, spanning some million km2 across Nunavut and Nunavik in northern Quebec. To obtain an updated abundance estimate for the Foxe Basin population, we conducted comprehensive aerial surveys during the and ice-free seasons, when bears are confined to land.

We sampled with mark-recapture distance sampling protocols on inland and coastal transects and surveyed small islands and remnant ice by: Studies in West Greenland and Baffin Bay suggest that copepods, euphausiids and mysids are a primary food source for bowhead whales (FinleySimon et al.Pomerleau et al.

The spreading history in Baffin Bay remains conjectural, but the presence of Paleocene basalts on both sides of Davis Strait suggests that the oceanic crust in Baffin Bay (Keen et al. ) is no. Foxe Basin Polar Bear Aerial Survey 2 season. Ongoing analysis will evaluate the distribution of bears in Foxe Basin and assess alternatives for long-term monitoring.

Project Objectives Our objectives were to: 1) Develop and implement an aerial survey to reliably estimate polar bear abundance in Foxe Basin during the late summer, ice-free season.

Study area. The study area is located in Baffin Bay, a ~,km 2 large basin between Canada and Greenland. We focus on Melville Bay, the northeastern part of Baffin Bay, between Upernavik in the south and Kap York in the northwest of the Greenland coast ().Melville Bay is characterized by three large overdeepened CSTs that are 45– km wide, – km long, and up to m deep Author: Patricia Slabon, Boris Dorschel, Wilfried Jokat, Francis Freire.

It connects to the North-Atlantic Ocean in the south via Davis Strait and to the Arctic Ocean in the north via passages of the Canadian Archipelago.

Long-term results from Davis Strait were not conclusive, particularly because the maximum percentage of ice cover in Davis Strait varies considerably more between years than in western Hudson Bay, Foxe Basin, or Baffin Bay. Conversely, Stirling and Parkinson () documented a negative short-term trend from to in Davis Strait.

Baffin Island encompasses both field research and High Arctic adventure. The research trips to Baffin between and also served as a vital training ground in polar studies for university students; further, they represented a breakthrough in gender equality in government-sponsored science, thanks to the author's persistence in having Cited by: 3.

Baffin Bay is a semi-enclosed, often ice-covered basin between northern Canada and 30 Greenland. It connects to the North-Atlantic Ocean in the south via Davis Strait and to the Arctic Ocean in the north via Nares Strait and the Canadian Archipelago.

Since the area of Hudson Bay, Foxe Basin, and Hudson Strait is geographically contained, we could calculate annual estimates. The Baffin bay among the following choices given in the question, is the body of water that opens to the Davis Strait.

The Baffin Bay is connected to the Atlantic Ocean through the Davis Strait. The correct option among all the options that are given in the question is the first option or option "A".
