Sirmilik National Park is located in northeastern Nunavut and is one of the most isolated, yet marvelous national parks in Canada. It was officially established in 1999 and holds on to 22,250km2 of land. To begin, the word “sirmilik” means “place of glaciers” in Inuktitut. One form of these glaciers are cirque glaciers (bowl-like carves). They have influenced the mountainous areas of this park.
These variations are produced by different temperature and humidity conditions through which the snowflakes fall. Some temperature/humidity combinations produce flakes with long needle-like arms. Other conditions produce flakes with wide flat arms and some other conditions can produce thin, branching arms. Vermont was the first person to capture photographs of snowflake images introduced many people to the astounding diversity of snow crystals. In 1951 scientist from an organization now called the International Association of Cryospheric sciences devised a classification system that
The wilderness is a great home for many different species of animals to inhabit. Such animals include polar bears, caribou, dall sheeps and wolves. It would be such a tragic that such a great habitat would be demolished. The Arctic National Refuge is a magnificent, and quoted, the last great wilderness. It has been mentioned that the wilderness will be consumed by "a web of roads and pipelines, drilling rigs and industrial facilities".
Torres del Paine National Park is a national park encompassing ancient forests, glaciers, lakes, rivers and fjords. Torres del Paine National Park was founded in 1959 and is located in the southernmost and largest region of Chile called Magallanes and Chilean Antarctica. Torres del Paine National Park covers approximately 242,242 hectares.
Eskimo is the name used for groups in Canada and Greenland. One of the group names are the Inuit. The types of shelters are an igloo or a karmak for the winter and tepee, in the warmer weather. They used typical materials that were hard to find in the artic. Some of the materials were mud and wood.
Glacier National Park was the world 's first International Peace Park and is called the "Crown of the Continent." Glacier National Park is located in the northwest corner of Montana, where two opposing air masses, the Arctic Continental and the Pacific Maritime, control Glacier 's climate. The Going To The Sun Road is a must see for all visitors to the park. Some effects of climate change are strikingly clear; glacier recession is underway, and many of the park 's glaciers have already disappeared. In Glacier National Park visitors find an array of plants and animals, learn geological and scientific facts, are able to participate in an abundance of activities, and have the opportunity to visit historical places that are breathtaking.
U. S. Rockies rock that they scrape the ice creates a heavy distinction of mountain glacier terrain, lack of sharp peaks and broad valleys are U-shaped. this can be a novel attraction of the mountain and also the Canadian Rockies is completely different. currently you’ll be able to visit lovely places like Lake Louise, Moraine
As a result, less carbon dioxide is removed from the atmosphere resulting in greenhouse gases accumulation and thus, a negative feedback. However, during the Cryogenian period, the earth continents were all at tropical latitudes which slowed down the effect of the negative feedback (Kirschvink, 2002). 5.1 Effect of frozen period on life A global glaciations as tremendous as the one suggested by Snowball Earth theory, would logically eliminate any photosynthetic life on Earth, as a result of the drastically depletion of oxygen.
The Flat Earth model illustrates “a flat disk ringed by sea ice, which naturally holds the oceans in” (Selk 2). If one ripped open a globe from Antarctica to flatten it out, the correct configuration of continents and countries on the Flat disk would be roughly shown. The North Pole lies in the center with Antarctica spread out as a ring of ice surrounding the disk (“Circumnavigation” 1). British Naval Officer Sir James Clark Ross first to documented his discovery of the “vertical ice front to the open sea [that extends] more than 50 meters high above sea level” (“The Ice Wall” 1). Humans are unable to survive a trip through the Ice Wall because the temperature approaches absolute zero the deeper into the wall one treks (“The Ice Wall” 1).
The archipelago a world unto itself, separated from the rest of the North American Continent. To the east it is flanked by ragged, perennially snow-capped Coastal Mountains. These are the mountains that the people of the Northwest call Cascadia.
Climate The Canadian Arctic is one of the extremely coldest climates known on Earth with the temperature of -28°C and -70°C during winter and in summer around 12°C which makes it very hard to survive unless you have appropriate shelter to keep you warm in freezing cold temperature. They had to discover a natural way of keeping them warm under shelter, For this particular reason, people who lived in that environment were forced to accommodate themselves by building with the material they had available and survive by using the techniques of passive engineering. Structure Design and Purpose People have always been fascinated by this traditional vernacular building called Igloo which is commonly found in Canada Arctic. The inventors of this vernacular
Blizzards are caused from low air pressure system. It’s a dangerous winter storm (snow and wind combined) Sometimes strong winds pick up snow that has already fallen, creating a ground blizzard.5 Officially, the National Weather Service defines a blizzard as a storm which contains large amounts of snow OR blowing snow, with winds in excess of 35 mph and visibilities of less than 1/4 mile for an extended period of time (at least 3 hours).5The conditions often develop on the northwest side of an intense storm system. The difference between the lower pressure in the storm and the higher pressure to the west creates a tight pressure gradient, or difference in pressure between two locations, which in turn results in very strong winds.5 A steady rain or snow can fall to the north of the warm front as warm moist air from the south rises up and over the cold air ahead of the warm front.6
The Arctic and the Yukon People Did you know that the Arctic and the Yukon people only wore animal skins for clothes?This essay is about the differences and the similarities between the Arctic and the Yukon people. This is how the Arctic and the Yukon people are similar. They both like to eat seafood. They wore animal skin for clothes so they could stay warm. There beliefs were based in a animism.
I am going to compare and contrast the effects that explorers and settlements had on three of the regions where they split into tribes. The first region that I am going to compare is the Arctic and Subarctic regions. Specifically, the Inuit Tribe. The Inuit Tribe was a tribe that lived in the far north part of the Arctic. They were hunters, because they could not farm for three fourths of the year, not even in the spring.
