      — A Current into Bering’s Strait, — Geographical Features unfavorable to large Icebergs in the North Pacific, — Necessity for cold to restore the Waste by the warm Currents, and Evaporation, — Arguments in favor of return Currents, because Sea Water is salt, — Currents Of The Pacific: Its Sargasso Sea, THE primary object of " The Wind and Current Charts," out of which has grown this Treatise on the Physical Geography of the Sea, was to collect the experience of every navigator as to the winds and currents of the ocean, to discuss his observations upon'them, and then to present the world with the results on charts for the improvement of.

    THE object of the following pages is to describe the Polar World in its principal natural features, to point out the influence of its long winternight and fleeting summer on the development of vegetable and animal existence, and finally to picture man waging the battle of life against the dreadful climate of the high latitudes of our globe.

      Polar navigators have learnt in the school of experience to distinguish between navigation in the frozen seas remote from the land, and navigation in the so called coast-waters. The former is far more dangerous, entirely dependent on accident, exposed to .   Fig 1. Arctic sea ice data collected by DMI. Click to enlarge! Sadly, just for a few years we also have March or September available, and thus we normally can’t read the Arctic ice minimum (medio September) from these maps.

In type A seas the deep and bottom waters are formed within the sea by the action of the atmosphere, while in Type B seas they are obtained from the outside ocean. 1 believe that the Norwegian Sea can be considered properly as a mediter- ranean sea of Type A and the North Polar Sea (or Arctic Ocean) can be considered as a Type B.

Polar amplification refers to _____. an increase in the magnitude of climatic change with increasing latitude.

The Younger Dryas _____. was a relatively cold episode that occurred ab to 10, years ago. The Vikings reached North America during the _____. Medieval warm period. All seas. have salinity ranging between 1 and %. Identify the FALSE statement. Ocean water. salinity decreases as seawater evaporates.

The thermocline occurs at a depth of m in the tropics but only m in the polar regions. Surface currents. are influenced by Earth's rotation. Identify the FALSE statement. The Coriolis effect. Biofilm formation on substrate surfaces is the first step in biofouling formation [1,2,3,4,5].Biofouling is a normal process occurring over several kinds of submerged surfaces, including natural aquatic systems such as marine [6,7] and freshwater ecosystems [], lentic or lotic water bodies, sediments, rocks, or artificial substrates, medical devices or pipelines in industrial or drinking water.

Fog is literally a cloud on the ground. It can cover vast areas and comes in a variety of types, just like clouds do. Fogs seen over the sea are different to those found in valley lowland areas and over mountains for example. Download fog fact file for printing, or have a look at our.

Where wood is scarce, a piece of turf turned up answers the purpose of a pole to conduct them towards the. Assuming the average density of sea-water, with an allowance for increase in the lower layers due to pressure, to be 1*04, the total weight of the seas would be 16 metric tons.

x io Allowing the weight of salt to be on the average 3^ per cent, of this, the total weight of dissolved 16 salts is xio metric tons.

The broad distinction still remains, that when carbon dioxide in solution is presented to a green plant in the sunshine it can decompose it, while an animal cannot.

I believe we have a simpler explanation. All sea-water contains a certain quantity of organic 1 North Atlantic Sea-bed, p. Page 47 CHAP. 1.] INTRODUCTION. The voyage, which it is my purpose to sketch in this book, owed its origin to two preceding expeditions from Sweden to the western part of the Siberian Polar Sea, in the course of which I reached the mouth of the Yenisej, the first time in in a walrus-hunting sloop, the Procven, and the second time in in a steamer, the Ymer.Sunspot observations indicate that solar activity has varied on an year cycle for the past years (since about AD ).

But longer-term variation has been inferred from observations of sunspots made over the last several centuries. For instance, during the Maunder Minimum () no sunspots were observed (Lean, ).One of the ways fogs form is when evaporation is minimal, and the water surface is covered by a very thin (mono-molecular) film.

Evaporation is reduced by %, creating the right conditions for fogs to form. Another method of fog formation is based on an artificial change of the status of a fog.
