SUMMARY ======= The Beaufort Sea (French: Mer de Beaufort) is a marginal sea of the Arctic Ocean, located north of the Northwest Territories, the Yukon, and Alaska, and west of Canada's Arctic islands. The sea is named after Sir Francis Beaufort, a hydrographer. The Mackenzie River, the longest in Canada, empties into the Canadian part of the Beaufort Sea west of Tuktoyaktuk, which is one of the few permanent settlements on the sea shores. The sea, characterized by severe climate, is frozen over most of the year. Historically, only a narrow pass up to 100 km (62 mi) opened in August–September near its shores, but recently due to climate change in the Arctic the ice-free area in late summer has greatly enlarged. Claims that the seacoast was populated about 30,000 years ago have been largely discredited (see below); present population density is very low. The sea contains significant resources of petroleum and natural gas under its shelf, such as the Amauligak field. They were discovered in the period between the 1950s and 1980s, and their exploration became the major human activity in the area since the 1980s. The traditional occupations of fishery and whale and seal hunting are practiced only locally, and have no commercial significance. As a result, the sea hosts one of the largest colonies of beluga whales, and there is no sign of overfishing. To prevent overfishing in its waters, the US adopted precautionary commercial fisheries management plan in August 2009. In April 2011 the Canadian government signed a memorandum of understanding with the Inuvialuit as a first step in developing a larger ocean management plan. The Canadian government announced in October 2014 that no new commercial fisheries in the Beaufort Sea will be considered until research has shown sustainable stocks that would be made available to Inuvialuit first.The Canadian government has set a new block of the Beaufort Sea off the Parry Peninsula in the Amundsen as a Marine Protected Area (MPA). The protected area is set to protect species and habits for the Inuvialuit community.

Extensive Ice Fractures in the Beaufort Sea
A series of intense storms in the Arctic has caused fracturing of the sea ice around the Beaufort Sea along the northern coasts of Alaska and Canada. High-resolution imagery from the Suomi NPP satellite shows the evolution of the cracks forming in the ice, called leads, from February 17 -- March 18 2013. The general circulation of the area is seen moving the ice westward along the Alaskan coast. The Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on the Suomi NPP satellite captured this view of extensive sea-ice fracturing off the northern coast of Alaska. The event began in late-January and spread west toward Banks Island throughout February and March 2013. More details at http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/IOTD...

9 Unbelievable Pirate Discoveries
What would you do if you found a mummified hand hidden away in your closet or treasures you've never even dreamed of ever finding Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 5. Consolacion Shipwreck Pirates wreaked so much havoc in on the seas, they could actually make their enemies sink their own boats. In August of 1680 a ship called the Consolacion sunk off the coast of Ecuador. The galleon was encountered by a group of English pirates, after it had picked up a large amount of gold from Lima, Peru. Before Pirates could get their hands on some of the treasures they were seeking the Spanish, set the ship on fire. They’d rather have the boat at the bottom of the sea then hand it over. A crew of explorer eventually salvaged the wreck in 1997 near the Santa Clara Island of Ecuador. Large amounts of gold and silver coins were uncovered and are even on sale online. 4. Montego Bay Pirate Treasure Montego Bay located on the island of Jamaica is an infamous place where pirates commonly lurked so it made for an excellent location to search for pirate treasures! A group of American treasure hunters set sail in the jamaican waters hoping to snatch some booty. The 17th century English vessel named the Manticore, was badly damaged and found in international waters just outside the Jamaican border limit. One of the scuba swimmers, Rick Miller, describes it as being an amazing experience, with gold and silver everywhere! Treasure’s one could only dream of! Just the weight of the precious metals alone is worth 187 million dollars. 3. Black Beard’s Ship in North Carolina In 1966, a an important piece of history was brought to the surface with the help from underwater divers off the coast of Beaufort, North Carolina. The vessel of, Queen Anne’s Revenge finally saw the light of day once again. This time, the boat came from Blackbeard himself and it is a true miracle this artifact from the past was brought to surface. They came across the heavy cannons, some weighing 2000 pounds each. 30 cannons were found total. Each cannonball that was fired, weighed at least 6 pounds. More than 280,000 rare historical facts were found. This pirate met Davy Jones locker in a gruesome fashion. British soldiers displayed is severed head on the ship where he was executed as a warning to pirates. That’s just a pirate’s life for you. This replica is what it possibly would have looked like at full strength and would have struck fear in any sailors heart! His flag was also gruesome. 2. Pirates Hand While doing a little bit of cleaning, a Florida couple in Tampa Bay were going through their attic when they came across a startling discovery. In the attic was a wooden box with a treasure map. Spanish coins and the strangest of all; a severed hand with a ring on it! Could these be some artifacts left from the legendary Jose Gaspar, a legendary Spanish pirate who would sail off the west coast of Florida, although it’s still a mystery of whether he even existed at all. Before you start jumping to conclusions, the authenticity is hard to prove. Pirates weren’t too well-known for openly documenting their every move. The Tampa Bay History curator, told WFLA news that he believed the coins are too thin to be authentic. And who knows if that hand thing is even real?! Is this finding a morbid hoax or possibly an unbelievable pirate hoax? 1. The Whydah Discovery The Whydah was a British slave ship that was originally captured by “Black Sam” and was found off the coast of Cape Cod in Massachusetts in 1984 by Barry Clifford. He actually credits a pirate treasure map that many discredited as being false. It seems to be the holy grail of pirate discoveries! Priceless artifacts were discovered including 200,000 individual pieces were received under only 14 feet of water. Rare gold and silver coins, gold jewelry and artifacts, cannons, sword handles and even a boy’s leg! The boat is believed to carry the plunder of 10 ships. Spanish Galleons were relentless looted by Black Sam until him and his crew were swept away by a strong storm in 1717. Divers pulled together huge clumps of gold coin masses that stuck together from years of being underwater. A museum exhibition called “Real Pirates: The Untold Story of the Whydah, from Slave Ship to Pirate Ship”, toured the United States. Barry believes there is more treasure out there from this wreck.

Eighteen months later we were getting married on a beautiful beach on Barbados, bare foot, very simple ceremony just like a dream! Two days after the wedding laying on the beach, talking about sailing, Carla suggested... why don't we sail around the world? Guess what Simon said? "Let's do it" He took it with no second thoughts! And here we are, fifteen months after that day in Barbados, we started our adventure in Croatia. We made it happen working through all the challenges on the way. Now we are enjoying this wonderful life, and what a wonderful life it is! As we travel we will cross less fortunate countries, we would love to help to build a school or a health care centre, anything that these people may need, and in our beautiful world this is taken for granted. But for these people it's a dream, or may not even be a dream. We will look around and when the opportunity to help comes we will put our hands and hearts in to it. Much love Carla and Simon

Westward from the Davis Strait 'tis there 'twas said to lie The sea route to the Orient for which so many died; Seeking gold and glory, leaving weathered, broken bones And a long-forgotten lonely cairn of stones. (chorus) Three centuries thereafter, I take passage overland In the footsteps of brave Kelso, where his "sea of flowers" began Watching cities rise before me, then behind me sink again This tardiest explorer, driving hard across the plain. (chorus) And through the night, behind the wheel, the mileage clicking west I think upon Mackenzie, David Thompson and the rest Who cracked the mountain ramparts and did show a path for me To race the roaring Fraser to the sea. (chorus) How then am I so different from the first men through this way? Like them, I left a settled life, I threw it all away. To seek a Northwest Passage at the call of many men To find there but the road back home again. (chorus)

Amount of old ice in Arctic, 1987-2013
**Latest version available @https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6jX9URzZWg** The winter ice pack in the Arctic was once dominated by multi-year*, thick ice. Today, very little old ice remains. This animation shows maps of sea ice age from 1987 through the end of October 2013. Age class 1 means "first-year ice," which is ice that formed in the most recent winter. The oldest ice (9+) is ice that is more than 9 years old. Animation by NOAA climate.gov, based on research data provided by Mark Tschudi, CCAR, University of Colorado. *Revised on 2/21/14. Caption originally said "old." Revised to "multi-year" to reduce ambiguity.

Old Ice Becoming Rare in Arctic (1987-2011)
The Arctic Ocean is virtually surrounded by land. The blanket of sea ice that forms there during the winter isn't completely free to drift away into warmer, southern waters. Because of that geography, it's common for sea ice to linger for many years at high latitudes, growing thicker and stronger, which makes it more likely to survive the summer melt. Or at least, it used to be common. The animation above shows how dramatically the amount of multi-year ice (ice that has survived at least one summer melt season) in the Arctic has decreased over the past two decades. Based on satellite tracking of ice parcels over time, the maps show the estimated age of sea ice once a week from January 1987 through mid-summer 2011. Ice age increases from darkest blue (1 year old) to white (9 or more years old). At the outermost edges of the ocean basin, the ice is seasonal: it forms every winter and melts every summer. Off the northeast coast of Greenland, a river of old ice continually flows out of the Arctic through the Fram Strait into warmer waters. Natural climate patterns accelerate the loss in some years and slow it down in others. Historically, that ice river was the major route by which the Arctic lost its very old ice. The export was balanced by ocean currents and wind patterns on the other side of the Arctic. Young sea ice gets caught up in the giant loop current called the Beaufort Gyre. The ice could remain in the gyre for years, circling around and around the central Arctic through the Beaufort and Chuchki Seas, growing thicker. The Beaufort Gyre was an incubator for growing multi-year ice. Since the late 1990s, however, the ice traveling through the southern part of the gyre rarely survives the summer melt. In other words, sea ice gets far less time in the incubator. In the mid-1980s, roughly 75 percent of the Arctic ice pack at the yearly maximum in March had survived at least one summer melt season; today only 45 percent has. Since the record low sea ice extent that occurred in summer 2007, no very old ice (9 or more years old) is left in the central Arctic basin. Only a thin ribbon remains tucked up against the islands of the Canadian Arctic. The loss of the multi-year ice is both a result of climate change and, ultimately, an accelerator of it. The less old ice there is in the ice pack, the more easily the ice melts in the summer. The more ice that melts, the more of the ocean that's exposed to the 24-hour summer Sun. Bright white ice reflects incoming sunlight, but dark ocean water absorbs it, heating the ocean and accelerating warming. credit: James Maslanik, Ned Gardiner, Hunter Allen, Richard Rivera, Rebecca Lindsey source: http://www.climatewatch.noaa.gov/video/2011/old-ice-becoming-rare-in-arctic

Watch 25 Years Of Arctic Ice Vanish In 1 Minute
Sea ice grows throughout the winter and melts throughout the summer, reaching its maximum extent in late February or March, and its minimum extent in September. The ice that survives at least one summer melt season is typically thicker and more likely to survive future summers. Since the 1980s, the amount of this perennial ice (or multiyear) has declined dramatically. This animation tracks the relative amount of ice of different ages each week from 1990 through early November 2015. The first age class on the scale (1, darkest blue) means "first-year ice,” which formed in the most recent winter. The oldest ice (greater than 9, white) is ice that is more than nine years old. Dark gray areas indicate open water or coastal regions where the spatial resolution of the data is coarser than the land map. Arctic sea ice moves continually. East of Greenland, the Fram Strait is an exit ramp for ice drifting out of the Arctic Ocean. Ice loss through the Fram Strait used to be offset by ice growth in the Beaufort Gyre, northeast of Alaska, where perennial ice could persist for years. But around the start of the 21st century, the Beaufort Gyre became less friendly to perennial ice. Warmer waters made it less likely that ice would survive its passage through the southernmost part of the gyre. By around 2008, the very oldest ice had shrunk to a narrow band along the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. In the 2015 Arctic Report Card, scientists wrote: In 1985, 20% of the ice pack was very old ice, but in March 2015 old ice only constituted 3% of the ice pack. Furthermore, we note that first-year ice now dominates the ice cover, comprising ~70% of the March 2015 ice pack, compared to about half that in the 1980s.

Hanging Snakes, Mexico There is a particular cave system in Mexico that is proof that animals are highly adaptable creatures! The José María Morelos cave near Kantemó in the Yucatan Peninsula is home to a horde of yellow-red rat snakes that have adapted to a world of complete darkness, to make the porous limestone rock cave their home. 9. Rock-Climbing Fish, Hawaii In Hawaii, you’ll find a species of fish commonly known as the Nopili rock-climbing goby, o'opu nopili, or Stimpson's goby … (tongue twister anyone?) which basically means, “the fish that climbs waterfalls.” These versatile little critters are an evolutionary wonder! While most of these fishes live on volcanic islands, they are in a constant battle of survival against mother nature. 8. Monkey Island, South Carolina Have you ever heard about Monkey Island? The island in question is located in Beaufort County, South Carolina, and is situated between the Morgan and Coosaw rivers. The island is known as Morgan Island to the natives and is currently home to one of only two Rhesus Monkey colonies in the United States - approximately 3500 of these free-roaming primates rule the roost here. 7. Baikal Seals, Russia Would you ever think to find seals in a lake?? Lake Baikal in Siberia, Russia, is home to the only exclusive freshwater seal species: the aptly named Baikal seals. The only other freshwater seals in the world are the Saimaa Ringed seals from Lake Saimaa in Finland, and the Ladoga Ringed seals found in Lake Ladoga, northwestern Russia. Notice they are all named after the lakes where they live! 6. Bunny Island, Japan Okunoshima is a small island in the Inland Sea of Japan and is often referred to as Rabbit Island, or Bunny Island as I like to call it, and you can imagine why!! This island is completely overrun by rabbits!! After World War II, the island was developed as a recreational park but during the war the place was so secret it was erased from all Japanese maps. The rabbits that can be found there today are said to either be descendants from their ancestors that were introduced for experimentation or were released there by some school children. 5. Peacock Island, Germany Pfaueninsel, also known as Peacock Island, is situated in Southwestern Berlin in the River Havel. It is believed that the island lay forgotten for a hundred years, until the Prussian King, Frederick William II, acquired Peacock Island in 1793, and build the Pfaueninsel Castle for his lover. The majestic island is of breathtaking beauty and can visitors are now welcome to explore the area at their leisure. 4. Goats of Sister Bay, Wisconsin Sister Bay is located in Door County, Wisconsin, and is known for its beautiful marina, breathtaking shoreline, friendly lodging establishments and restaurants for everybody’s taste. It is a year-round vacation destination, with loads of festivals and activities throughout each season. One of the famous restaurants in Sister Bay is surely Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant. Not only is this establishment known for its hospitality, excellent food and drinks, but also for goats on the roof. 3. Parrots of Telegraph Hill, California Telegraph Hill, San Francisco, is home to a flock of beautiful, colorful, wild parrots. Researchers believe that an escaped pair of Cherry-headed Conures found their ecological niche on Telegraph Hill in 1990. These escapees were quickly joined by other jailbreakers, or possibly released, conures from the city, and soon the population of wild parrots has grown to gigantic flock. 2. Feral Pigs, Bahamas Major Cay, or Pig Island, is an uninhabited island located in the Bahamas. This Island received the name Pig island, and some even call it Pig Beach, because of the colony of feral pigs that have made their home here. Legend has it that a bunch of sailors dropped the pigs off on the island with the intention of coming back later to enjoy a couple of pork chops, but never returned. Others believe that the pigs were survivors of a shipwreck and they swam to the safety of the island. 1. Hippos of Hacienda Napoles, Colombia Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar, built a luxurious estate in the country and named it Hacienda Napoles.

BOLD JOURNEY recounts the voyage of the CCGS Labrador, a Wind-class icebreaker, through the Northwest Passage in 1954. Labrador set sail on her maiden voyage on 23 July 1954 from Halifax, Nova Scotia, bound for the Labrador Sea. Over the next summer the vessel worked her way through Canada's Arctic archipelago from east to west, conducting hydrographic soundings, resupplying RCMP outposts and deploying assorted scientific and geological teams. Her rendezvous with her American sister-ships USCGC Northwind and USCGC Burton Island off the coast of Melville Island on 25 August 1954 marked the first time American and Canadian Government ships had met in the Arctic from the east and west. During the rendezvous, the crews visited with one another. The three ships surveyed the Beaufort Sea together until the end of September 1954, at which point Labrador headed for the base of Canada's Pacific fleet at Esquimalt, British Columbia. Labrador then became the first large vessel to transit the Northwest Passage. Upon sailing down the west coast of the United States, through the Panama Canal and back to Halifax, Nova Scotia on 21 November 1954; Labrador also became the first ship to circumnavigate North America in a single voyage. First commissioned on 8 July 1954 as Her Majesty's Canadian Ship (HMCS) Labrador (pennant number AW 50) in the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN), Captain O.C.S. "Long Robbie" Robertson, GM, RCN, In Command. She was transferred to the Department of Transport (DOT) on 22 November 1957, and re-designated Canadian Government Ship (CGS) Labrador. She was among the DOT fleet assigned to the nascent Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) when that organization was formed in 1962, and further re-designated Canadian Coast Guard Ship (CCGS) Labrador. Her career marked the beginning of the CCG's icebreaker operations which continue to this day. She extensively charted and documented the then-poorly-known Canadian Arctic, and as HMCS Labrador was the first ship to circumnavigate North America in a single voyage. This film, hosted by Jack Douglas, tells the whole story of the NW Passage trip — 66 days in length. At mark 1:45, Commander O.C.S Robertson- commander of the Labrador was invited to the program. He defines the Northwest Passage and explains the myriad challenges he faced, including lack of accurate maps. He also explains some of the rationale for the trip, including important questions of national defense. At mark 4:20, we see Sorrel where the ship was built and commissioned. At mark 4:47, we have the crew loading up supplies for their voyage and expedition. On July 23rd, they sailed for the arctic just a short time after commissioning. At mark 6:04, they stop and make researchers, took salinity of the water, and some also made charts. At mark 6:45, they met their first ice berg 685ft high which was measured by helicopters. At mark 7:20, they reached Beechie Island. At mark 7:54, the ice becomes thicker from 6-13ft thick. When this happens they ram off the ice. The Labrador rides up on top of the ice and approaching creak habour was a slugging match. This went on day after day. At mark 11:56, the islands were marked, also magnetic survey. At mark 12:37, we have the crew returning from a survey and their boat was stucked, the water temperature was very cold here and it took about 2days to get the boat off. At mark 13:30, they received a distress signal from a ship trapped in the ice and rescue team were made. Helicopters got a range of just 60miles.. At mark 15:33, the lost ship was found at midnight on the 21st of August. It was rescued and was able to follow behind the Labrador. After this, they headed westward to Banks island where they hope to pick up one of Stephasons caches which he left years ago. While searching for this, at mark 16:26, they found reindeers. At mark 17:15, they found it and helicopter was used in the pickup. At mark 19:20, we have the mother polar bear and her babies. Here they took experiment on how arctic weather affect the weather which was done based on heat. They then proceeded again and changed south again. It was a new kind of a voyage, 10,000 miles, a new ship, and 66 days. At mark 21:17, they fly their flag which shows the successful voyage and they were celebrated by their families. The commander talked on their achievements on the voyage at mark 22:20. The commander is now stationed in Washington and at mark 24:14, he was thanked for been available.

Bristol Beaufighter - Ten Gun Terror
The Bristol Type 156 Beaufighter, often referred to as simply the Beau, was a British long-range heavy fighter modification of the Bristol Aeroplane Company's earlier Beaufort torpedo bomber design. The name Beaufighter is a portmanteau of "Beaufort" and "fighter". Unlike the Beaufort, the Beaufighter had a long career and served in almost all theatres of war in the Second World War, first as a night fighter, then as a fighter-bomber and eventually replacing the Beaufort as a torpedo bomber. Design and development The idea of a fighter development of the Beaufort was suggested to the Air Ministry by Bristol. The suggestion coincided with the delays in the development and production of the Westland Whirlwind cannon-armed twin-engined fighter. By converting an existing design the "Beaufort Cannon Fighter" could be expected to be developed and produced far quicker than starting a completely fresh design from scratch. Accordingly the Air Ministry produced specification F.11/37 written around Bristols suggestion for an "interim" aircraft pending proper introduction of the Whirlwind. Bristol started building a prototype by taking a part-built Beaufort out of the production line. This prototype first flew on 17 July 1939, a little more than eight months after the design had started and possible due to the use of as many of the Beaufort's design and parts. A production contract for 300 machines had already been placed two weeks before the prototype flew, as F.17/39. In general, the differences between the Beaufort and Beaufighter were minor. The wings, control surfaces, retractable landing gear and aft section of the fuselage, were identical to those of the Beaufort, while the wing center section was similar apart from certain fittings. The bomb-bay was dispensed with, and a forward-firing armament of four Hispano 20 mm cannons was mounted in the lower fuselage area. (These initially were drum-fed cannon, necessitating the radar operator having to manually change the ammunition drums—an arduous and unpopular task, especially at night and in the midst of a chase with a bomber target.) The areas for the rear gunner and bomb-aimer were removed, leaving only the pilot in a smoother, fighter-type cockpit. The navigator/radar operator sat far to the rear in a small bubble where the Beaufort's dorsal turret had been located. The Bristol Taurus engines of the Beaufort would not be sufficient for a fighter and were replaced by the more powerful Bristol Hercules. This extra power presented problems with vibration. In the end they were mounted on longer, more flexible struts, which stuck out from the front of the wings. This had the side effect of moving the centre of gravity (CoG) forward, generally a bad thing for an aircraft design. It was then moved back into place by cutting back the nose area, which was no longer needed for the bomb-aimer in the fighter role. This put most of the fuselage behind the wing and moved the CoG back to where it should be, leading to the Beaufighter's famous stubby appearance. Production of the Beaufort in Australia, and the highly successful use of British-made Beaufighters by the Royal Australian Air Force, led to Beaufighters being built by the Australian Department of Aircraft Production (DAP), from 1944 onwards. Australian-built examples are generally known as the DAP Beaufighter. The DAP's variant was an attack/torpedo bomber, known as the Beaufighter Mark 21: design changes included Hercules CVII engines, a dihedral tailplane and enhanced armament. By the time British production lines shut down in September 1945, 5,564 Beaufighters had been built in England, by a number of manufacturers as well as Bristol: Fairey Aviation, (498) MAP (3336) and Rootes Securities Ltd (260).

Sea of Japan / A Globally Established Name
This video is the introduction of the video produced by MOFA of Japan. http://www.mofa.go.jp/mofaj/area/nihonkai_k/meisho_douga.html (1) ROK assertion: "The name Sea of Japan became widespread as a result of Japanese expansionism and colonial rule." The Japanese Government's survey of historical maps confirms that the name Sea of Japan was already prevalent at the early 19th century. Japan during the Edo Period (1603-1867) had an isolationist policy, and was unable to exercise any influence to establish the name Sea of Japan. Consequently, the ROK's assertion that the name Sea of Japan became widespread as a result of "expansionism and colonial rule" in the latter half of the 19th century is wholly invalid. Further, as shown in item6, the Government of the ROK has recently published a survey that can be interpreted as recognizing that the name Sea of Japan did not become widespread as a result of Japanese expansionism and colonial rule. (2) ROK's assertion: "For the past 2000 years, the name "East Sea" has been used in the Korean Peninsula." The ROK provides no evidence for the assertion that the name "East Sea" has been used continuously for the past 2000 years. Even though the name "East Sea" is in use today in the ROK, it is obvious that the name "East Sea" is nothing but a local name used only in the ROK,and that the name Sea of Japan is the only name that has been in wide use internationally for a long period of time. (3) ROK assertion: "The UN and IHO have issued resolutions that urge the use of the name 'East Sea' together with Sea of Japan." The ROK contends that the United Nations (UN) and the International Hydro-graphic Organization (IHO) have issued resolutions that advocate the name "East Sea" be used together with Sea of Japan. However, neither UNCSGN Resolution III/20 nor IHO Technical Resolution A.4.2.6 includes any specific recommendation to use "East Sea" alongside Sea of Japan. Further, these resolutions presume that the geographical feature concerned is under the sovereignty of two or more countries, such as in the case of a bay or strait, and does not apply to the high seas such as with the Sea of Japan. Following the ROK's assertion, if even one of the countries bordering the Atlantic or Pacific were to raise an objection to the names of these oceans, it would lead to the use of multiple names, which would clearly be unmanageable. The international community cannot accept such an argument. Further, as stated under item4 the UN has already officially confirmed its policy requiring the use of Sea of Japan as the standard geographical term in all official UN publications. The IHO publication "Limits of Oceans and Seas" (S-23) also uses the name Japan Sea for the sea area concerned. This demonstrates that there is no UN or IHO resolution recommending the use of "East Sea" together with Sea of Japan. (4) Results of the ROK survey lack credibility (a) The ROK survey counts "Oriental Sea" and "Sea of Korea" as "East Sea." The survey of historical maps conducted by the ROK(Society for East Sea)in 2004 that asserts "East Sea" as its official name counts the terms "Oriental Sea" and "Sea of Korea" (or "Korea Sea") as "East Sea," and compares the number of maps that use one of these terms to the number of maps that use Sea of Japan. It is apparent that "Sea of Korea" and "East Sea" are different names. Moreover, the names "Oriental Sea" and "East Sea" have completely different origins and meanings. "Oriental Sea" refers to the sea of the Orient from the perspective of the Occident, while "East Sea" means the sea on the eastern side of the Korean peninsula. (b) Japan's survey is more comprehensive than the ROK survey of the same collections. Japan's survey of historical maps in France's national libraries included 1,495 maps. The ROK's survey of the same institutions, on the other hand, consists of only 515, or approximately one-third of the Japanese survey's total, therefore yielding completely different results. It is evident that Japan's survey is more comprehensive.

NASA Reveals Mysterious 'Ice Circles' Formations Near The North Pole
NASA has spotted mysterious circles in the Arctic Sea during their annual flights over the earth's polar regions. Operation IceBridge is currently on its tenth year making the flights over in Greenland and Antarctica - an effort to map the remote regions' land and sea ice and predict its response to climate change. While flying over the eastern Beaufort Sea on April 14, scientist John Sonntag noticed there was something on the ice he had never seen before and took a photo from the window of the P-3 research plane. The circles were spotted about 50 miles northwest of Canada's Mackenzie River Delta, according to NASA. 'We saw these sorta-circular features only for a few minutes today,' Sonntag wrote from the field. 'I don't recall seeing this sort of thing elsewhere.' IceBridge project scientist Nathan Kurtz said the image shows an area of thin ice because you can see finger rafting near the holes and the gray color, which indicates little snow cover. Kurtz echoed Sonntag's thoughts, saying he's never seen anything like the circles in the ice and isn't sure what could cause the semi-circle shaped features surrounding the holes. NASA has speculated what could have cause the circles to form. One of their theories is that seals gnawed out the holes to make an open space in the ice so they can surface and breathe. Another possibility is that the holes were caused by convection- hotter water , less dense ice rising ad colder, more dense ice to sink under the pressure of gravity, which results in a transfer of heat.

Race is on for Arctic Treasures
The US, Canada and Russia have launched competing expeditions to map the bottom of the sea near the North Pole. Canadian Arctic researcher Edward Struzik shared some details behind the unlikely US-Canadian partnership. "Canada and the US do have a disagreement over one area: the Beaufort Sea, which contains a lot of oil and gas. But they have set those differences apart because they don't really have the icebreaker power to do the job that is necessary to do in a short period of time. They say: 'Let's get on with it', because the Russians are very far ahead of the game, the Norwegians have already done their work and Denmark has done a very good job as well," Struzik told RT. More than a third of the world's undiscovered gas and a tenth of its oil reserves are estimated to be in the region. So the race is on to claim ownership of the pole. "The oil there is expensive right now, but for countries like the US it is a matter of energy security," said Dr. Iosif Diskin, chairman of the National Strategy Council. "It will give Americans uninterrupted energy supplies regardless of any conflicts anywhere in the world." "The ability of a country to stake its place there will determine its prosperity in the coming decades," argued Arkady Tishkov, deputy director of the Geographic Institute. But it is not yet clear how the pie will be divided between the five nations closest to the North Pole. The easiest way to gain economic rights to significant portions of the Arctic is by proving they are linked to the country itself by land. And this is what these expeditions are trying to do. As for Russia, it is hoping to prove our economic rights to the region before the UN by 2013 -- this involves showing the exact location and makeup of our continental shelf. Michel Chossudovsky from the Canadian Centre for Research on Globalization believes the US "is pushing to extend its territorial sovereignty into the Arctic region without, however, abiding by the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea." "It does not have a continental extension in the Arctic region, as in the case of Canada, Denmark the Russian Federation and Norway," he said. "This is visible and it is understood from what we know about the region geographically. But what the United States is doing with this mission -- it's a joint mission between the US and Canada -- is essentially to use Canada as a means to extend its own sovereignty under the North American umbrella." Russia symbolically planted a flag at the North Pole back in 2007. Some have speculated this is a hint of the political grandstanding to follow. But Diskin does not believe it will come to armed conflict. "I will expect the word of the United Nations will be final on this," he predicted. Despite tens of millions spent by the northern neighbors, so far not a cent has been earned from the Arctic. "Russia, for example, doesn't have the skills, doesn't have the ships to extract oil in the Arctic -- it spends less on this than on football," stated Robert Nigmatulin from the Institute of Oceanology. But new technologies and equipment resistant to extreme weather and isolation may soon be here. Nigmatulin expects the active exploitation of the Arctic to begin within ten years. "But it's not just about the profit -- the risks as well," he warned. "If you see the recent oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, you can predict the scale of disasters that can happen in the fragile Arctic climate." Discussion of environmental risks may delay offshore drilling in the Arctic, but it is unlikely to prevent it. And one thing is clear: A region that has so far existed without major human involvement is set for its biggest and most rapid period of change in millions of years.

Arctic Sea Ice Minimum Volumes 1979-2016
Latest 2017 version here: https://youtu.be/Xh3oakgxZ9w This is an animated visualization of the startling decline of Arctic Sea Ice, showing the minimum volume reached every September since 1979, set on a map of New York with a 10km grid to give an idea of scale. It is clear that the trend of Arctic sea ice decline indicates that it'll soon be ice-free for an increasingly large part of the year, with consequences for the climate. The rate of ice loss in the Arctic is staggering. Since 1979, the volume of Summer Arctic sea ice has declined by more than 80% and accelerating faster than scientists believed it would, or even could melt. I also composed and played the piano music, "Ice Dreams". A longer version played live can be found here: http://youtu.be/_miBCygvO4Y About the data: Sea Ice Volume is calculated using the Pan-Arctic Ice Ocean Modeling and Assimilation System (PIOMAS, Zhang and Rothrock, 2003) developed at APL/PSC. Source data for this graph is available from http://psc.apl.washington.edu/wordpress/research/projects/arctic-sea-ice-volume-anomaly/ More information: The image first appeared in still form on Think Progress, and I decided to try to bring it to life over the following weeks: http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2013/02/14/1594211/death-spiral-bombshell-cryosat-2-confirms-arctic-sea-ice-volume-has-collapsed/ An earlier video also featured on BBC's Newsnight last year: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-19496674 I produced the animation using hand-written perl and php code to create povray scripts, and scheduling task distribution using MySQL between 8 linux servers working in parallel to render 875 frames at 1920 x 1080 resolution. The "farm" renders 22 frames simultaneously taking between 1-2 hours per frame. On completion, ffmpeg combines the individual frames and music into a high quality mp4 video.

Surviving Hurricane Threat - Sailing Spain to Portugal [Ep. 17]
In this sailing video we are sailing from Spain to Portugal. In this episode, we survive a scare from Hurricane Leslie, and then sail our way to Lisbon, Portugal. After arriving in Vigo, the very next day Maik took off for a week of work in Germany, while Cap’n Jack and Scout and Michelle stayed in Vigo. We explored the city a little, did some boat chores, and we both tackled a lot of work for our clients. Toward the end of the week, the sunny skies turned black, the wind picked up, and Maik raced back a few days early to prepare Seefalke for a visit from Hurricane Leslie. Thankfully, Leslie missed us and a couple days later we headed toward Porto. This was calculated to be about a 20-hour voyage. We wanted to arrive during high water the next morning. It was a beautiful, sunny, warm afternoon, so on our way, we decided to take a little detour and check out Playa de Rodas, which is considered to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. After our short detour, a school of common dolphins greeted us as we headed toward Porto. They stayed with us through the night and we were treated to the amazing bioluminescence created by the algae and plankton in the Atlantic. After sailing to Lisbon, we took two weeks to catch up on our real jobs with work in the US and Germany. We are Maik and Michelle, two sailors from different worlds and different cultures with very different perspectives about sailing around the world together on our 43-foot, steel ketch, Seefalke. We also have different levels of sailing experience. Maik (a German) has sailed for more than 20 years, while Michelle (an American) has only been sailing five years. Our crew includes two Beagles, Cap’n Jack and Scout! Come along for the ride to follow our journey! We also love to cover cool travel destinations and the amazing sea creatures we discover along the way! For deeper insight, please read our online blogs!

Since its completion in 1979, the 417-mile-long Dempster Highway has provided Inuvik, the largest town north of the Arctic Circle in Canada's Northwest Territories, with year-round road access to the rest of the country. Built from gravel and crushed stone piled high on top of permanently frozen ground, the Dempster makes for treacherous driving, especially during the winter months. Once you get past Inuvik, however, the situation gets even tougher. Sometimes called the Amazon of the north, the Mackenzie River begins at the Great Slave Lake and flows north into the Arctic Ocean's Beaufort Sea. During most of the year, towns in the Mackenzie River Delta region, such as Aklavik, located west of Inuvik, and Tuktoyaktuk, located 100 miles north on the coast of the Beaufort Sea, are accessible only by air or boat. When the weather gets cold enough to freeze the river (often in December but sometimes not until January or February) drivers heading north from Inuvik take their chances on the Mackenzie River Ice Road, opened for the first time in February 1981. Though the ice road is reportedly well-marked and plowed frequently to remove insulating layers of snow, extreme caution is necessary to navigate through often severe weather conditions and potholes caused by fissures in the ice. At kilometer 34, the road breaks into two branches, one heading west towards Aklavik while the other shoots up toward Tuk. The rough driving conditions only get worse further north, as the road reaches the mouth of the Mackenzie near Tuk and heads onto the frozen surface of the Beaufort Sea itself. Prior to 1981, dogsled was the only way to make the journey north to Tuk and other river delta communities; since then, trucks have been able to take the place of boats on the river highway during the winter months. They play the crucial role of supplying the river delta communities such as Tuk with much-needed medical and other supplies, as well as fueling the economy of the Northwest Territories by ferrying machinery, tools and fuel to work sites like that of MGM Energy Corporation, a Canadian oil and gas exploration and development company, and the Mallik Gas Hydrate Research Project, which studies the potential of extracting carbon energy from the natural gas hydrates that exist in the permafrost soil north of the Arctic Circle. The Mackenzie River Ice Road is only one of many similar Canadian ice roads; the longest one in the country (and the world) is the Tibbitt to Contwoyto Winter Road, which extends 370 miles from north of Yellowknife into the neighboring territory of Nunavut and allows trucks to service several diamond mines along the way. Ice roads are also in use in Finland, Norway, Alaska and Russia. In one particularly famous instance, the so-called Doroga Zhizni, or "Road of Life, stretching across the frozen Lake Ladoga, was used to evacuate refugees from Leningrad when the city was under siege by the Germans for 900 days—from September 1941 to January 1944—during World War II. During the winter months of the siege, trucks did the work of boats, ferrying thousands of people across the frozen lake to freedom.
