The sound of the general alarm bell reverberated through the ship. At AM, this couldn't be a drill. Even more puzzling, we were still dockside in Halifax, four hours from our scheduled departure for the Labrador Sea.

This represents a contributing land area more than three times the combined area ( ( km2) of Hudson Bay and its adjacent bodies of water (Foxe Basin, Hudson Strait, and James Bay).

Hudson Strait is a deep, wide channel that connects Hudson Bay and Foxe Basin to the west with the Labrador Sea and Davis Strait. Labrador Sea and consists of the Davis Strait, Baffin Bay, the Northwest Passage, and Hudson Bay. The second group is located between Europe, Africa, and Asia and contains the Eurafrican Mediterranean Sea (which includes the Black Sea).

The third group is found near the junction of North and South America and contains the American Mediterranean Sea. The Canadian Arctic Rift System is a major North American geological structure extending from the Labrador Sea in the southeast through Davis Strait, Baffin Bay and the Arctic Archipelago in the northwest.

It consists of a series of interconnected rifts that formed during the Paleozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoic eras. Extensional stresses along the entire length of the rift system Age: Paleozoic-to-Cenozoic. Labrador Sea, northwestern arm of the North Atlantic Ocean, between Labrador, Canada (southwest), and Greenland (northeast).

It is connected with Baffin Bay (north) through Davis Strait and with Hudson Bay (west) through Hudson Strait. The cold, low-salinity Labrador Current flows southward along the Canadian coast.

The Labrador Sea (French: mer du Labrador, Danish: Labradorhavet) is an arm of the North Atlantic Ocean between the Labrador Peninsula and sea is flanked by continental shelves to the southwest, northwest, and northeast.

It connects to the north with Baffin Bay through the Davis Strait. It has been described as a marginal sea of the countries: Canada, Greenland. Labrador Sea is the body of water between Greenland and the coast of Labrador. It is m deep and km wide where it joins the North Atlantic and shallows to less than m where DAVIS STRAIT separates it from BAFFIN BAY.

Labrador Sea. Labrador Sea is the body of water between Greenland and the coast of Labrador. in Hudson Strait through the mixing of waters from the Baffin Island Shelf, deep waters from the Labrador Sea, and relatively low salinity waters from Hudson Bay (Dunbar ; Kollmeyer et al.

Indeed, Kollmeyer et al. () had called the region of eastern Hudson Strait the "birthplace" of the Labrador Shelf waters. Basin, and Hudson Strait). A recent observational study highlights how the outflow from Hudson Strait (the channel linking HJB to the Labrador Sea) is a significant contributor to the freshwater flux over the Labrador Shelf, both by conveying the freshwater from HJB and by recycling part of the Baffin Current (Straneo and Saucier, b).

In this chapter, we present estimates for the net, as well as the inflow and outflow transports, of volume, heat and freshwater through Hudson Strait. These are based both on a review of the inputs into the basin and on the first year-long measurements of the outflow from Hudson Strait to the Labrador by: Title: Oceanography of the Labrador Sea in the vicinity of Hudson Strait in / Ronald C.

Coast Guard Oceanographic Unit,   With these origins of Labrador Sea freshwater—60%–80% from the WGC and 20% from precipitation—a causal connection between central LS convective activity and the main WGC freshwater sources, like sea ice melt and Fram Strait freshwater export, must dominate over salinity anomalies originating from or passing through the Baffin Bay by: Full text of "Oceanography of the Grand Banks region and the Labrador Sea: April-June, August, and October " See other formats.

() estimated that Hudson Bay and the Labrador Sea dis-sipated GW of M2 tidal energy. This made it the fifth most important region of tidal dissipation, the first four being the Bering Sea, the Sea of Okhotsk, the Northwest Australian Shelf and the European Shelf.

The International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) recognizes it as an ocean, although some oceanographers call it the Arctic is sometimes classified as an estuary of the Atlantic Ocean, and it is also seen as the northernmost part of the all.

The shallow water boundary circulation of the Labrador Sea is essentially cyclonic and consists of three main currents ().The West Greenland Current flows northward along the Greenland shelf and shelf break with a transport of roughly 3 Sv (Sv ≡ 10 6 m 3 s −1) measured at Cape Farewell (Clarke ).Along the Labrador coast, the shallow Labrador Cited by: Hudson Strait).
