Extraordinary pictures capture scores of walruses crammed onto a chunk of ice floating in the Chukchi Sea off the coast of Alaska. American photographer Steven Kazlowski said he was 'amazed' to see the mammals crowded onto the iceberg surrounded by open water. He said the island provided a safe resting place for the creatures, in between foraging for shrimp, crabs and molluscs on the sea floor.

Surviving Alone In Alaska - Wild Alaska Documentary - Documentary Films (Official) Alaska is a U.S. state positioned in the northwest extremity of the North American continent. Surrounding the state to the eastern are the Canadian territory of Yukon and the Canadian district of British Columbia; to the north are the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas, southerly parts of the Arctic Ocean. To the west and also south is the Pacific Sea, with Russia (specifically, Chukotka Autonomous Okrug and also Kamchatka Krai) further west across the Bering Strait. Alaska is the biggest state in the Usa by location, the Fourth the very least heavily populated and the least largely populated of the 50 Usa. Approximately fifty percent of Alaska's locals (estimated at 736,732 by the Census Bureau in 2014  live within the Anchorage metropolitan area. Alaska's economy is dominated by the oil, gas, and fishing markets, resources which it has in wealth. Tourist and army bases are also a significant part of the economic situation. Although it had been occupied for over 10 thousand years by indigenous individuals, from the 18th century onward, European powers taken into consideration the territory of Alaska ripe for exploitation and trade. The Usa purchased Alaska from the Russian Realm on March 30, 1867, for 7.2 million U.S. dollars at approximately two cents per acre ($4.74/ km2). The area went through a number of management modifications prior to ending up being organized as a territory on Might 11, 1912. It was admitted as the 49th state of the U.S. on January 3, 1959. The name "Alaska" (Аляска) was introduced in the Russian colonial duration when it was utilized to describe the peninsula. It was derived from an Aleut, or Unangam idiom, which figuratively refers to the landmass of Alaska. Actually, it means object to which the action of the sea is directed. It is also referred to as Alyeska, the "excellent land", an Aleut word derived from the very same origin. Alaska is the northern most and western state in the United States and also has one of the most easterly longitude in the Usa since the Aleutian Islands expand into the eastern hemisphere. Alaska is the only non-contiguous U.S. state on continental The united state and canada; about 500 miles (800 kilometres) of British Columbia (Canada) separates Alaska from Washington. It is technically part of the continental U.S., however is occasionally not consisted of in colloquial use; Alaska is not part of the contiguous UNITED STATE, typically called "the Lower 48". The funding city, Juneau, is located on the mainland of the North American continent yet is not attached by road to the remainder of the North American freeway system. The state is bordered by Yukon as well as British Columbia in Canada, to the eastern, the Gulf of Alaska and the Pacific Sea to the south, the Bering Sea, Bering Strait, as well as Chukchi Sea to the west as well as the Arctic Sea to the north. Alaska's territorial waters touch Russia's territorial waters in the Bering Strait, as the Russian Big Diomede Island and also Alaskan Little Diomede Island are only 3 miles (4.8 kilometres) apart. Alaska has a much longer shoreline than all the other U.S. states incorporated. Alaska is the biggest state in the Usa in acreage at 663,268 square miles (1,717,856 km2), over two times the size of Texas, the next biggest state. Alaska is larger than just about 18 sovereign nations. Counting territorial waters, Alaska is larger than the consolidated area of the following 3 biggest states: Texas, The golden state, and Montana. It is likewise larger than the combined location of the 22 smallest UNITED STATE states. Subscribe For Mor Documentary Films: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNfl2... .

Location of the Chukchi Peninsula in Far East Siberia. The Chukchi Peninsula, Chukotski Peninsula or Chukotsk Peninsula (Russian: Чукотский полуостров), at about 66° N 172° W, is the northeastern extremity of Asia. Its eastern end is at Cape Dezhnev near the village of Uelen. It is bordered by the Chukchi Sea to the north, the Bering Sea to the south, and the Bering Strait to the east. The peninsula is part of Chukotka Autonomous Okrug of Russia. The peninsula was traditionally the home of the native Chukchi people, some Eskimo peoples (Siberian Yupiks and Sireniki Eskimos), Koryaks, Chuvans, Evens/Lamuts, Yukagirs, and some Russian settlers. The peninsula lies along the Northern Sea Route (the Northeast passage). Industries on the peninsula are mining (tin, lead, zinc, gold, and coal), hunting and trapping, reindeer raising, and fishing. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chukchi_Peninsula

Besides Chukchi bears, the United States shares the southern Beaufort Sea population with Canada (file photo) The controversial report claims nine polar bear sub-populations are increasing in size. This goes in contrast to conservationists' estimates. The graphic above from WWF shows only two small sub-populations appear to be growing (green), several others are considered to be stable (blue) and one is known to be declining (red). There are still many uncertainties, though, as indicated by the white circles Polar bears have become one of the enduring symbols of the environmental cause (pictured, on Somerset Island in Canada).

The report Ice algal communities in the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas in spring and early summer: Composition, distribution, and coupling with phytoplankton assemblages, will be presented by Edgar Villarreal. Voiced over a text to speech because he has performance anxiety. The Questions the report asked are How do ice algal communities bloom? What is the role of ice algae in under‐ice bloom development? The Hypothesis is that Sea ice algae can seed water column phytoplankton blooms in the Chukchi Sea. What we know is that Phytoplankton are found deeper in the water column, underneath the icescape, and blooms later in the summer. Ice algae grow right underneath the ice sheet and seeds (spores) when the ice melts, later in the season. the objectives are to know environmental factors influencing late spring and early summer ice algal community distributions and to measure the maximum potential for ice algae to seed down to the water column with massive phytoplankton. To test the predictions that ice algal communities were going to spore where deeper in the column where phytoplankton are, They took 37 ice sheet samples and water samples at different depths of the water column and ice sheets throughout the Chukchi sea. Also, sampling was collected from mid-May to late July from 2010, 2011 and 2014, when it was possible to observe. The ice during the spring were compared during the summer for its light penetration. Special sensor microwave /imager data obtained from the National Snow and Ice Data Center were used to quantify sea ice concentrations. This was determined when ice sheets melt at sampling location spots throughout the year. Snow depth was measured with the ice core samples. To test the ice algal, they added a filtered water solution to reduce osmotic shock from the ice melting. The water column samples and ice slushy samples were collected to measure the nitrate, silicate, phosphate, and ammonium nutrient concentrations. How much light was going through the ice was measured using a hyperspectral radiometer system. Chlorophyll A was measured to quantify the ice algal and phytoplankton biomass. The Results were as followed. There was no relationship between ice thickness and snow thickness. The melting rate was slightly delayed in the north and only one sample has shown advance melting. The only nitrate was lower than expected. Chrollphille a was ice algal was high in spring than summer for ice algae, as expected. Chlorophyll an in phytoplankton were lower in spring and higher in summer, as expected. However, the light penetration under the ice was higher than previous studies. This was because of the snow inches have been lower than the year before due to climate change. The discussion concluded that the results supported the hypothesis. There was seeding down in the water column when the spring turns into summer. This is when the phytoplankton blooms in the summer. There have to be further studies made to understand why. What was amazing that the amount of light penetrated through the ice was double the amount from previous studies. Even though the melting rate was the same years before, the reduction of snow resulting in more light penetrating through the ice. The ice algae were not as sensitive as shown from previous studies and acclaimed over the years.

Around 1,000 Seattle activists in kayaks were set to protest Shell's Arctic drilling Saturday. Has the oil industry learned from past disasters? Follow Cliff Judy: http://www.twitter.com/cliffjudy See more at http://www.newsy.com Transcript: If you're not familiar with the term "kayaktivists" — well, get ready. Around 1,000 of them are expected to paddle through the Puget Sound Saturday to protest the Royal Dutch Shell ships and oil drilling rig currently docked in Seattle. The ships are headed north this summer. (Video via KING) Earlier this week, Shell won conditional approval from the U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management to explore for oil in the Chukchi Sea off Alaska's coast. The move infuriated environmentalists who point to the infamous Deepwater Horizon explosion and environmental disaster as a worst-case scenario. (Video via Shell and RT) But given an incredibly cautious public sentiment in wake of past tragedies and the enormous backlash if Shell did produce another disaster, has the oil industry learned from past mistakes? The concern is certainly fair. The Chukchi Sea has far more extreme oceanic conditions and is far more remote than drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, making disaster response more difficult if something went wrong. (Video via U.S. Geological Survey) Shell is pushing hard to present a message of safety. Ahead of its approval to drill in the Chukchi Sea in 2012, it released several videos explaining its response plans if something went wrong. It also pointed out features on its rigs meant to prevent a massive BP-like oil leak into the sea. It also has a 12-point explainer on its website on how it would deal with a leak in the nearby Beaufort Sea. But part of that plan includes "using detailed ice and weather forecasting to warn of extreme conditions" — something it's seemingly already failed to do. The rig mentioned in that Shell video we featured earlier was the Kulluk. When Shell tried to move the rig in late 2012 to avoid taxes, a Coast Guard report shows the tow master warned the rig it was a bad idea because the frozen conditions "guarantees an ass kicking." Sure enough, the tow lines broke and Kulluk ran aground, forcing a Coast Guard rescue and eventually leading the Department of the Interior to rescind Shell's Arctic drilling approval. (Video via ODN) And then there's a February report from the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management predicting a 75 percent chance there will be a large oil spill in the Chukchi Sea if drilling begins there. That figure understandably inspired a flurry of foreboding headlines. But the bureau has since released a larger explanation saying the 75 percent figure is over the course of 77 years if the Chukchi Sea had hundreds of wells in production, not one company exploring the area. A "large" oil spill is defined as anything leaking 1,000 barrels or more, which pales in comparison to the Exxon Valdez oil spill that dumped an estimated 257,000 barrels or the 4.9 million barrels spilled by Deepwater Horizon. Ultimately, this is a crystal ball issue. The government has tried to make sure Shell is fully prepared for any situation in the name of a potentially huge economic impact. But in doing so, it's also accepting the risk a largely untouched ecosystem suffers some kind of significant setback. (Video via Greenpeace) A risk management consultant who used to work for Shell in the Arctic told The Atlantic, "Have we really worried enough about the potential of a catastrophic blowout? Have we learned enough about the prevention and mitigation of spills? At this point it’s an unanswered question.” This video includes images from Edward Boatman / CC BY 3.0, Thibault Geffroy / CC BY 3.0, Getty Images, and music by @nop / CC by NC 3.0.

In a vivid demonstration of the cascading consequences of manmade global warming, a record 35,000 Pacific walruses have hauled out of the Chukchi Sea onto a beach near Point Lay, Alaska. Walruses are an ice-dependent species, and with sea ice having retreated far offshore, the walruses have been forced to swim to land to be able to forage and rest, officials said. Walruses, each of which can weigh more than 4,000 pounds, depend on sea ice for hunting food in deeper ocean waters and resting in between those dives, and the retreat of sea ice cover in recent years has helped push them ashore in increasing numbers in the Russian Arctic and now the Alaskan Arctic as well, biologists and climate scientists said. http://feeds.mashable.com/~r/Mashable/~3/814ZKdO2e84/ http://www.wochit.com

The emerging Arctic Ocean is defined by less sea ice and larger expanses of open water in summer. Waves have a larger role to play in this regime. Oceanographer Jim Thomson led a 32-day research cruise on the Beaufort and Chukchi seas in October–November — the season of maximum open water, strongest storms, and potentially largest waves — to study the air-sea-ice interactions and feedbacks during the seasonal sea ice regrowth and advance. The team encountered several storm events, observed pancake ice everywhere, and discovered the unexpected.

It is bounded on the west by the Long Strait, off Wrangel Island, and in the east by Point Barrow, Alaska, beyond which lies the Beaufort Sea. The Bering Strait forms its southernmost limit and connects it to the Bering Sea and the Pacific Ocean. The principal port on the Chukchi Sea is Uelen in Russia. The International Date Line crosses the Chukchi Sea from northwest to southeast. It is displaced eastwards to avoid Wrangel Island as well as the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug on the Russian mainland.
