Photo: Ice chart image shows Arctic deep freeze

By NUNATSIAQ NEWS

It's a far cry from July... The Canadian Ice Service, an arm of the federal department of environment and climate change, released this regional ice chart Dec. 29 which shows most communities in Nunavut — save for Sanikiluaq on the Belcher Islands in southern Hudson Bay — are officially frozen in for winter. Nunavik's shorelines appear to be solid as well. Bright white areas from Victorial Island northward into the Arctic archipelago show ice at full concentration. Areas where white turns to grey and light blue show thinner concentrations. The darkest blue shows areas of open water. You can watch how that sea ice formed in late December here: http://tinyurl.com/jpkkyoo. (CANADIAN ICE SERVICE IMAGE)
