The Arctic Region

The Arctic Region The Arctic Region is an ocean, mostly covered with a permanent stratum of ice. The ocean is limited by islands and North America, Europe and Siberia.

Geographical Characteristics
The Iced Ocean has a 14 million km²­ surface and its depth is 3.000 m. in the summers you can navigate around Canada's north coast. Many big rivers, Mackenzie in North America and Ob Lena and Enisa in Eurasia, flows into the Iced Ocean during the summers and in the winters they are frozen.

The winters are very cold and long, and in the summer temperatures climb a little above 0°C. the medium temperature in January is -30°C and even less on the earth near. In July temperature in the North Canada and Siberia can reach 9°C. the rains are rare because the cold air can't keep humidi ty.

Faun and Flora
When the snow melts the earth around the ocean presents a rapid growth of grass, flowers and bushes. Birds and migrating mammals, as wolves, bears and coats, are guests in the winter. The oceans are rich in fish and plankton, which feed the big animals, polar bears, whales, seals and sea-cows.

Fishing is an important industry- they catch whales, sea-cows and salmons, around the coasts. It is exploited the copper, coal and nickel in Canada and Eurasia, and were found large deposits of petrol in the north of Canada and Alaska.

The Arctic Region has a rare population. The people who were originally Indian and Inuit (Canadian Eskimos) from North America have already abandoned the old way of life, semi-nomad, and settled. The similar groups of people from Eurasia include Lapps, Samoyed and Yakut.
