Caption: Arctic ice cover. Map showing the maximum extent of the polar ice pack in the Arctic. The ice cap, shown as shaded white, covers the whole of the Arctic Ocean and northern semi-enclosed seas such as the Baltic Sea (bottom) and the Sea of Okhotsk (top right). The ice cap also covers some northern coastal areas, particularly in Canada and Alaska (upper left). The permanent ice cap is somewhat smaller, touching land only at the northern edge of Greenland and some of the Canadian islands.
