Conodont-bearing Triassic strata collected from five locations across west-central to southeastern Yukon contain trace-element ratios ((La/Yb) N = ∼8; Eu/Eu* = ∼), εNd ( Ma) values (–9 to –10), and detrital zircon ages (–, –, –, – Ma) that correspond with those of coeval rocks in the Canadian.

The Arctic Cordillera is a terrestrial ecozone in northern Canada characterized by a vast, deeply dissected chain of mountain ranges extending along the northeastern flank of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago from Ellesmere Island to the northeasternmost part of the Labrador Peninsula in northern Labrador and northern Quebec, spans most of the eastern coast of Nunavut with high.

The Arctic region includes the Yukon’s narrow coastal plain, Banks and Victoria islands, and Baffin Island’s lowlands. The Arctic Cordillera runs along Baffin Island’s east coast, extending into Ellesmere Island, where sheer cliffs on Borden Peninsula overlook the ice-clogged waters of Lancaster Sound.

Llandovery graptolites have been collected from 11 sections in the Cape Phillips Formation of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago: Melville, Bathurst, Truro, Cornwallis, Devon, and Ellesmere islands. The Arctic Cordillera is a vast, deeply dissected chain of mountain ranges extending along the northeastern flank of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago from Ellesmere Island to the northeasternmost part of the Labrador Peninsula in northern Labrador and northern Quebec, spans most of the eastern coast of Nunavut with high glaciated peaks rising through icefields and some of Canada's.

The Arctic Islands. The Arctic Islands is the northernmost region of earth and generally considered to be all areas above the Arctic Circle (66° 33’N).

It encompasses parts of Canada, the US, Russia, Scandinavia and the whole of Greenland. The Arctic Islands is a formidable place of bitter cold and barren lands.

The western slopes of the Great Smokies, with their abundant rainfall, produce trees that have reached record maximum height and diameter.

Among these are the yellow poplar, buckeye, eastern Canadian hemlock, and chestnut oak. The Appalachian forest is a highly complex interdependent system. It forms one of the great floral provinces of the Earth.

This group of s islands is mostly part of the territory of Nunavut Baffin, Ellesmere and Victoria Islands are the largest of the group respectively.

The Cordillera focuses on the three sub-groups: the taiga, largely unpopulated and unspoiled; the boreal, which is mountainous and forested; and the montane, which encompasses the foothills of the Rockies.

The book also tells the story of the Frank Slide, which killed 76 people in just seconds, and the Klondike Gold Rush. The deeply dissected mountains ranges of the Arctic Cordillera stretch from the Ellesmere Island to the Labrador Peninsula, and extend as far south as northern Quebec.

The greater part of Nunavut’s eastern coast is covered by mountains of the Arctic Cordillera. Large areas of these mountains are protected within the limits of various national. This includes: the Eastern Woodlands, the Plains, the Plateau, the Northwest Coast, the Subarctic, and the Arctic Aboriginals.
