It appears I didn't mention here the Windytv.com website with awesome presentations of wind, temperature, waves, precipitation and pressure forecasts.

has been mentioned and used to post images a few times in the past but it's a such an extremely nice and useful tool that it's certainly good to bring it to more users by regular re-mentioning :-)

Feliz Año :-)

Dragons that once appeared on maps of the Arctic apparently now only live in the Southern Ocean near Australia.

Incredibly rare ruby sea dragon has been caught on camera for the first time

It's even more beautiful than we imagined.

A type of seadragon known only from museum specimens has been seen in the wild for the first time in deep water off Western Australia.

Two ruby seadragons were observed for nearly 30 minutes, uncovering new details about their anatomy, habitat, and behaviour.
 

The researchers from the University of Western Australia, the Western Australian Museum, and Scripps Institution of Oceanography used a mini-remotely operated vehicle in waters more than 50 meters deep near the Recherche Archipelago off Esperance.

Here’s the footage:

Alright, I'm not really convinced early map makers were referencing the same or similar species to these small creatures now known to science.

Cross-posted old map
epiphyte: definitely unprecedented in recorded history.

From one of my articles - http://www.science20.com/chatter_box/arctic_ice_july_2010_update_3_0


The map shows what was considered to be an average minimum, i.e. summer  ice extent in 1939.

I notice pack ice reaches to almost 85' N of Svalbard . Permanent sea ice appears to cover less area than in my old school Atlas from 1975..

So extensive and dangerous a work

    Eleven nations established 14 principal research stations across the Polar Regions. 12 were in the Arctic, along with at least 13 auxilary stations. Over 700 men incurred the dangers of Arctic service to establish and relieve these stations between 1881 and 1884.

Svalbard and Franz Josef Land (FJL)

The Norwegian Svalbard archipelago was known as Spitzbergen before 1925 and includes the island of Spitzbergen.  The Russian military's Franz Josef Land archipelago is also know as Franz Joseph Land and (less often) Franz Josef(ph) Islands.

(Bottom map of both archipelagoes is from a cruse company's PR map)
Svalbard:

A cool map of FJL from an 1894-97 expedition is too big to show as an image.  An FJL sketch map is depicted below.

you can send me the image so i can gonna make it smaller for you if you like, assuming that you're talking about file size not image extent :-) however that as well could be fixed/altered, just in case you're interested.

Thanks, magnamentis.  From above, here is the "cool map of FJL from an 1894-97 expedition is too big to show as an image."  Click for enlarged, and much better looking, version.

This isn't an Arctic map, but some may find this cross-post helpful:
There is a mix of ice shelfs here: Only the first picture shows the Shackelton Ice Shelf, the others show the West Ice Shelf where a large ice berg is finally breaking apart after staying put for at least 25 years.


All of the above images show the Shackleton ice shelf.  The West ice shelf lies between Amery and Shackleton and is not shown above.  Please see the image below.

The ice island in Shackleton is sometimes known as Pobeda ice island: it is mentioned in my article The Amery Zig-Zags.

Crosspost plus Greenland map image (rotated - 'up' is to the right).  Click on links for 2 versions of map with scale.

couple of interesting links, the first shows bathymetry worldwide reasonably well, but with too little detail for the shelves, the second is one of a series of 16 gives a slightly improved veiw but again lacks detail, and stops at 750 N/S

You could try contacting the Royal Geographical Society in London( RGS.org ). they've got heaven knows what in their archives.

Not exactly a map, but it is pretty. Heres an exaggerated relief map of the bering strait, (High summer in 2021 by the looks of the ice):

cross post:
Hans Island is composed of Silurian aged limestone, per this  1931 map (via Geo. Survey of Denmark)
(Interesting that Petermann Fjord had a different name then.)

Has the limestone gone dolomitic? Memories of breaking my hands and heart breaking up some of it in the Forest of Dean, England.
ps: These old maps are wonderful, made by true Mariner Masters.
