Evolution of the Canadian Arctic Islands: A Transition between the Atlantic and Arctic Oceans

  • J. Wm. Kerr

Abstract

The Canadian Arctic Islands and nearby mainland areas (Fig. 1) form a physiographic transition between the Atlantic and Arctic Oceans. Thus, the margins of two ocean basins are involved in this study.
