Northern Canada

Northern Canada, colloquially the North, is the vast northernmost region of Canada variously defined by geography and politics. Politically, the term refers to three territories of Canada: Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut; the Far North may refer to the Canadian Arctic: the portion of Canada that lies north of the Arctic Circle, east of Alaska and west of Greenland. This area has less than 1 % of Canada's population; these reckonings somewhat depend on the arbitrary concept of nordicity, a measure of so-called "northernness" that other Arctic territories share. Canada is the northernmost country in the Americas and 80% of its 35 million residents are concentrated along its southern border with the United States; as a social rather than political region, the Canadian north is subdivided into two distinct regions based on climate, the near north and the far north. The different climates of these two regions result in vastly different vegetation, therefore different economies, settlement patterns, histories.

The "near north" or subarctic is synonymous with the Canadian boreal forest, a large area of evergreen-dominated forests with a subarctic climate. This area has traditionally been home to the Indigenous peoples of the Subarctic, the First Nations, who were hunters of moose, freshwater fishers and trappers; this region was involved in the North American fur trade during its peak importance, is home to many Métis people who originated in that trade. The area was part of Rupert's Land or the North-Western Territory under the nominal control of the Hudson's Bay Company from 1670–1869; the HBC's claim was purchased by the Canadian government in 1869, shortly thereafter the government made a series of treaties with the local First Nations regarding land title. This opened the region to non-Native settlement, as well as to forestry and oil and gas drilling. Today several million people live around 15 % of the Canadian total. Large parts of the near north are not part of Canada's territories, but rather are the northern parts of the provinces, meaning they have different political histories as minority regions within larger units.

The "far north" is synonymous with the areas north of the tree line: tundra. This area is home to the various sub-groups of the Inuit, a people unrelated to other Aboriginal peoples in Canada; these are people who have traditionally relied on hunting marine mammals and caribou barren-ground caribou, as well as fish and migratory birds. This area was more influenced by the whaling industry; this area was not part of the early 20th century treaty process and aboriginal title to the land has been acknowledged by the Canadian government with the creation of autonomous territories instead of the Indian reserves of further south. Few non-Aboriginal people have settled in these areas, the residents of the far north represent less than 1% of Canada's total population; the far north is often broken into west and eastern halves. The eastern Arctic which means the self-governing territory of Nunavut; the western Arctic is the northernmost portion of the Northwest Territories and a small part of Yukon, together called the Inuvialuit Settlement Region.

Since 1925, Canada has claimed the portion of the Arctic between 60°W and 141°W longitude, extending all the way north to the North Pole: all islands in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago and Herschel, off the Yukon coast, form part of the region, are Canadian territory and the territorial waters claimed by Canada surround these islands. Views of territorial claims in this region are complicated by disagreements on legal principles. Canada and the Soviet Union/Russia have long claimed that their territory extends according to the sector principle to the North Pole; the United States does not accept the sector principle and does not make a sector claim based on its Alaskan Arctic coast. Claims that undersea geographic features are extensions of a country's continental shelf are used to support claims. Foreign ships, both civilian and military, are allowed the right of innocent passage through the territorial waters of a littoral state subject to conditions in the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.

The right of innocent passage is not allowed, however, in internal waters, which are enclosed bodies of water or waters landward of a chain of islands. Disagreements about the sector principle or extension of territory to the North Pole and about the definition of internal waters in the Arctic lie behind differences in territorial claims in the Arctic; this claim is recognized by most countries including the United States. S; this is important with the Northwest Passage. Canada asserts control of this passage as part of the Canadian Internal Waters because it is within 20 km of Canadian islands. S. claims. Today ice and freezing temperatures make this a minor issue, but climate change may make the passage more acces


Chergach is a meteorite found at southwest of El Mokhtar, Erg Chech, Timbuktu district, Mali. It fell on 2 or 3 July 2007, in daytime, was composed of ordinary chondrite. During 2007 fall and winter about 100 kilograms of meteorites were collected in the Erg Chech, north of Taoudenni. Desert nomads reported that during daytime in July 2007 several detonations were heard over a wide area, a smoke cloud was seen and several stones fell from the sky, however no fireball was reported. Ouled Bleila was the finder of the first meteorites, but he died in October 2007 in a car accident on his way back from the trip to the Chergach strewn field. According to the Tuareg people, the elliptical strewn field stretches for more than 20 kilometres. Glossary of meteoritics A fine example of a fresh crusted individual is pictured here
