Canadian Basin

Canadian Basin

 

a depression of the floor of the western part of the Arctic Ocean. To the south the Canadian Basin is bounded by the continental slope of North America, on the north by the Mendeleev Range, and to the west and east by the Chukchi and Alpha rises. It is up to 3, 810 m deep. The bottom of the Canadian Basin is an abyssal plain covered with clayey silt.

"We've seen that there is the potential for $10 billion in cost savings to existing shippers in the Western Canadian Basin as well as potential cost savings for shippers of Alaskan gas.
An ice island slowly describes a circle within the Canadian Basin where the present IOEB study is concentrated.
Freshwater input to the Arctic Ocean is important for the development of stratification in the water column, and the eastward redirection of the Russian river water resulted in a reduction in stratification in the Eurasian Basin and an increased stratification in the Canadian Basin. Specifically, instead of entering the surface Transpolar Drift to exit the Arctic Ocean within about two years, the pollutants could instead access the lower Atlantic layer and thus find their way into the Canadian Basin, where they have a 10-year residence time.
The Northwest Passage spans the ice-congested regions of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago and the pack ice of the Arctic Ocean found in the adjacent Canadian Basin (Fig.
This summer-winter difference is likely part of the reason for the negative salinity difference shown for the surface waters of the Canadian Basin. The salinity increase in the Makarov Basin is comparable to the spatial variability of salinity over the whole upper Arctic Ocean.
