    Marine geology of the Bering Sea; selected bibliography of U.S. Geological Survey studies (present) Open-File Report By: K.R. Evans. But there is no underlining or highlighting on the pages. There is a name written on the flyleaf. This book covers the broad spectrum of marine geology in a largely non-quantitative way: the rocks, sediments, geophysics, structure, microfossils, and stratigraphy and history of the ocean basins and their margins. The most northern feeding sites known for this species are located in the Chukchi Sea near Hanna Shoal and Point Barrow. The other cetacean species for which take is authorized are uncommon in Prudhoe Bay, and no known feeding or calving grounds occur in Prudhoe Bay for these species.

On- and off-transect sampling effort (km) by month conducted in the Bering and Chukchi seas.

    A bowhead whale feeding “hotspot” (Okkonen et al., ) commonly forms on the western Beaufort Sea shelf off Point Barrow in late summer and fall. Favorable conditions concentrate euphausiids and copepods, and bowhead whales congregate to exploit the dense prey (Ashjian et al., , Moore et al., ; Okkonen et al., ).

The North Sea basin is located in northern Europe and lies between the United Kingdom, and Norway just north of The Netherlands and can be divided into many sub-basins. The Southern North Sea basin is the largest gas producing basin in the UK continental shelf, with production coming from the lower Permian sandstones which are sealed by the upper Zechstein salt.

Watt, Samuel Y. Johnson, Stephen R. Hartwell, and Stephanie L. Ross. The Chukchi Sea is covered by sea ice in late winter and spring and is mostly ice-free in late summer and fall, a process that drives seasonal movements of marine mammals that use the Chukchi Sea mainly for foraging and migration during the open-water period.

The ice edges form important habitat for seals and by:. Chukchi Sea is a less important target for this objective than the Beaufort margin, investigating Chukchi shelf and slope will improve our understanding of permafrost/gas-hydrate distribution in the western Arctic.
