Hudson Bay (Inuktitut: Kangiqsualuk ilua, French: baie d'Hudson) (sometimes called Hudson's Bay, usually historically) is a large body of saltwater in northeastern Canada with a surface area of 1,, km 2 (, sq mi). Although not geographically apparent, it is for climatic reasons considered to be a marginal sea of the Arctic drains a very large area, about 3,, km 2 Coordinates: 60°N 85°W / 60°N . In addition, there’s still very little open water in Hudson Strait, which connects Hudson Bay to Davis Strait in the east – that’s also unusual. Figure 1. Sea ice extent over Hudson Bay and Hudson Strait at 26 May

The chart below shows what sea ice thickness over Hudson Bay was like at the first week of May in a so-called a ‘good year’ () – when polar bears came off the ice in excellent condition late in the summer and left early in the fall (‘thick first year ice’ is dark green and indicates ice greater than m thick): Hudson Bay ice conditions this year appear to be shaping up to be as good or better than last . This is the third year in a row that freeze-up of Western Hudson Bay (WH) ice has come earlier than the average of 16 November documented in the s. Reports by folks on the ground near Churchill confirm polar bears are starting to move onto the sea ice that’s developing along the shore after almost 5 months on land.

Hudson Bay. Named for the Dutch explorer Henry Hudson who explored these waters in , it is the second-largest bay on the planet, next to the Bay of Bengal. Shallow, with an average depth near m ( ft), the bay is approximately 1, km ( mi) long and 1, km ( mi) wide. Introduction. The marine waters of Hudson Bay, James Bay, Hudson Strait, and Foxe Basin in the eastern Canadian Arctic (the “study area”; Figure 1) are covered by sea ice for 5 to 10 months of the year (Hochheim and Barber, ).The seasonal duration of sea ice in the area is declining in response to climate change (Hochheim and Barber, ; Stroeve et al., ; Kowal et Cited by: 5.
