The Northern Sea Route (Russian: Се́верный морско́й путь, Severnyy morskoy put, shortened to Севморпуть, Sevmorput) is a shipping route officially defined by Russian legislation as lying east of Novaya Zemlya and specifically running along the Russian Arctic coast from the Kara Sea, along Siberia, to the Bering entire route lies in Arctic waters and. The ice-free conditions in the sea around Sisimiut, including some of Greenland’s deepest fjords, allow us to sail in waters that are home to many whales and seals. Day Kangerlussuaq Sondre Stromfjord is one of the longest fjords in the world and boasts kilometres of superb scenery.

Ice drift speeds are of the order of 1 to 4 cm/sec, equivalent to to km/yr; in comparison, the Arctic Ocean is about km across. The speed and distance may be compared to the 3 years taken by the Fram to drift from the Laptev Sea to Spitsbergen, and the years for the Sedov to drift about km. The movement is not steady, but has frequent variations of speed and direction. Sea Ice: North, South and Global The statistics on the area of the arctic sea ice might seem to give some credence to the belief that global warming, although amounting to only a sixth of a degree Centigrade per decade, could have dramatic effects, perhaps even catastrophic effects. The amount of sea ice is the cumulative sum of the.

Two kilometers away is Northumberland House, built on a raised beach by Commander Pullen of the North Star, part of the Belcher Expedition, who lost 4 of their 5 ships in the ice Guests were shuttled to the shore by zodiac, to view the lonely graves of Braine, Hartnell, and Torrington. Attractions around the area Just 5 minutes away from The Beach House, enjoy the Jost Winery, offering wine tastings, the Seagrape café (open all year round) and bike rentals. Blue Sea provincial beach park is just up the road, only 5kms away. There are quad/snowmobile trails a plenty throughout the area as well as hiking and walking trails.

A Northumberland Strait iceboat is a rowing boat, typically 5 metres in length, 2 metres in beam, with runners fastened to the hull for dragging over sea ice. Constructed of wood, similar to fishing dories built in Atlantic Canada and New England, the iceboats were operated in the Northumberland Strait during the 19th century and early 20th century, running between Prince Edward Island and.

The strait is famous in folklore circles for regular sightings of the Ghost Ship of Northumberland Strait, a flaming vessel which appears in the middle of the strait.

The strait is also notable for the ice boats, small oared boats which made regular dangerous crossings of the strait in winter carrying mail and passengers before the era of ice. A picture of an ice formation in the Northumberland Strait is fascinating viewers on social media — and for good reason, according to the Atlantic Canadian Coast Guard.

Scallop Fishing Area 22 consists of the western end of Northumberland Strait between Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick, and a small part of Nova Scotia.

The strait’s shallow depth lends itself to the warmest ocean water temperatures (20 degrees Celsius or 70 Fahrenheit) in Canada during the summer. Beachgoers flocked to the coast to take advantage of the summer-like conditions and some at Parlee Beach even took a dip in the Northumberland Strait despite ice patches still floating in the water.

Although temperatures have been near normal so far this month, Greater Moncton has yet to crack 10°C. “Ice too thick for coast guard’s heavy icebreaker” said a 20 April CBC report on the state of ice in the Strait of Belle pack is thick first year ice (four feet thick or more in places) and embedded with icebergs of much older, thicker ice.

The ice packed along the northern shore of Newfoundland is hampering fishermen from getting out to sea and is not expected to clear. History and Facts about the Northumberland Strait The Northumberland Strait is a tidal water body between Prince Edward Island and the coast of eastern New Brunswick and northern Nova Scotia.

The strait extends km west-northwest to east-southeast from Richibucto Cape, NB, to Cape George, NS, with a width of km. Sea ice capable of impacting marine operations occurs periodically in the most favourable sites for energy harvest from the tidal currents of the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.

Lobster Fishing Area 25 consists of the western end of Northumberland Strait between Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick, and a small part of Nova Scotia. The strait’s shallow depth lends itself to the warmest ocean water temperatures (20 degrees Celsius or 70 Fahrenheit) in Canada during the summer.

Ms Bruce, who lives in High Bank, has been leafing through old history books and files in the Northumberland Ferries’ archives, learning important facts and details.

However, she’s also calling upon her own experiences and resources in the area where she grew up, such as the local residents whom she knows have ties to the Strait. In waters normally covered by thick ice, ships are today sailing easily and without escorts. Ice data from Russia’s Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute show that the whole Northern Sea Route now is ice-free.

Even in the waters between the Kara Sea and the Bering Strait, normally a highly complex and ice-covered area, shipping appears smooth and easy. The results from the first deployment of an upgraded Ice Profiler, operated just off the Confederation Bridge in Northumberland Strait, from November to Aprilare presented and compared.

These warm conditions helped break the ice up early in the northern route. If winds push sea ice away from the entrance to M’Clure Strait, the northern route of the Northwest Passage could open completely this year.

However, even scattered sea ice remains a significant threat to navigation. The ferry service continued tillwhen the Confederation Bridge opened for traffic. A private company, Northumberland Ferries Ltd. still maintains ferry crossings from Wood Islands to Pictou, Nova Scotia, the route of P.E.I.'s first ice boat runs.

Table 2. Users of sea ice information in the Northern Sea Route. The main role of ERS SAR data is to cover smaller, selected areas with detailed images of the sea ice which are needed in practical applications such as ice navigation.

With m resolution in the ERS SAR images, most of the ice features important for navigation can be detceted. Small ice caps were generated after Scotian Phase retreat perhaps during a brief late-glacial climatic reversal over southern Nova Scotia, (SM-South Mountain Ice Cap), the Northumberland Strait area (C-Chignecto Glacier) and the Antigonish Highlands in northern Nova Scotia (A-Antigonish-Chedabucto Bay Glacier Complex).

Northumberland Fisheries Museum 21 Caladh Avenue, Pictou The museum preserves the area’s rich sea heritage and pays tribute to all those involved. It is named after Arctic explorer William Edward Parry, who got as far as Melville Island in before being blocked by ice at McClure Strait.
