Borders of Oceans
When do you you know when you've sailed into a different ocean?
The Arctic Ocean is the smallest and shallowest of the five major oceans. Fridtjof Nansen was the first to make a nautical crossing of the Arctic Ocean, in 1896. It is generally taken to include Baffin Bay, Barents Sea, Beaufort Sea, Chukchi Sea, East Siberian Sea, Greenland Sea, Hudson Bay, Hudson Strait, Kara Sea, Laptev Sea and other tributary bodies of water. It is connected to the Pacific Ocean by the Bering Strait and the Atlantic through the Greenland Sea and Labrador Sea.
