  Henry Hudson was an English explorer who was one of the most influential and renowned figures of the Age of Discovery, a term used to refer to extensive European overseas exploration from the end of the 15th century to the 18th undertook four voyages in early 16th century to find a short northerly passage to Asia.

Distributions of freshwater (sea-ice melt and runoff) were investigated along inshore-offshore sections in southwestern Hudson Bay for fall conditions. Conductivity-temperature-density profiles and bottle samples collected for salinity, oxygen isotope (δ 18 O), and colored dissolved organic matter (CDOM) analyses were used to discriminate between contributions of river .

Arctic sea ice levels over the Barents Sea and Hudson Bay were the third lowest on record since officials began monitoring the area by satellite in , according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC). Last month the sea ice extent averaged million square miles, , square miles less than the average from the period between. Lecture 1: Introduction _____ Chemical oceanography is the study of everything about the chemistry of the ocean based on the distribution and dynamics of elements, isotopes, atoms and molecules.

Oceanography. the science of recording and describing the ocean's contents and processes. Abstract. This paper examines, in turn, the influence of a number of oceanographic and ecologic factors on the control of phytoplankton production and biomass in estuarine and coastal environments, with particular attention to studies conducted in the St. Lawrence by:

Adventurers: Hudson's Bay Company, The Epic Story by Christopher; Hudson's Bay Company Staff Moore and a great selection of related books, .   The Hudson’s Bay Company eventually came to own about 15% of the entire North American continent. It operated much as the East India Company did, which essentially owned all of British India until the mutiny led the British government to assume responsibility for governing the Raj in India. (Hudson’s Bay Company. This implies that the Hudson Strait outflow accounts for approximately 15% of the volume and 50% of the fresh water transports of the Labrador Current. This larger than previously estimated contribution is partially due to the recycling, within the Hudson Bay System, of relatively fresh waters that flow into Hudson Strait, along its northern edge. Predicted impacts of climate change on the marine environment include an increase in temperature, a rise in sea levels and a decrease in sea-ice by:

Hudson Bay Lowlands is a vast wetland located between the Canadian Shield and southern shores of Hudson Bay and James of the area lies within the province of Ontario, with smaller portions reaching into Manitoba and wide and slow-moving rivers flow through this area toward the salt water of Hudson Bay: these include the Churchill, Nelson.

In oceanography, a marginal sea is a sea partially enclosed by islands, archipelagos, or peninsulas. Some of the major marginal seas include the Arabian Sea, Baltic Sea, Bay of Bengal, Bering Sea, Black Sea, Gulf of California, Gulf of Mexico, Mediterranean Sea, Red Sea, and all four of the Siberian Seas (Barents, Kara, Laptev, and East Siberian).

The waters of Hudson bay, though potentially rich, do not present suitable conditions for the development of fisheries of any magnitude. Fresh water from an extensive drainage basin mixes only superficially with the salt water, so that the bay has an estuarial character, apart from the somewhat barren deeper arctic water, with the fisheries largely those of the rivers emptying Cited by: 6.
