What happens when the tide goes out...

When the tide is out... under the ice.

Very interesting what the indigenous inhabitants of the region have
done for ages.

5. That must be in the more southern parts of Canada.

 

In the Arctic regions the tides are too small to allow for that to be done.

19. Really doesn't matter north-south

Tides are more influenced by the shape of the land and shallowness of the sea.



Anchorage, I remember, had 30-40 foot changes in tide.

20. Arctic regions get almost zero tidal change.

 

They are most affected by storm surge.

Anchorage has the largest tidal flats in the US. Flat, sloppy silt from glacier run-off

21. Well the place they were at was the Hudson Straight

That's not southern Canada.

The arctic regions, at least the north slope of Alaska, aren't affected by tides because of the shape of the land more then anything.

If you look on the map, you can see it varies from place to place. The west coast of france gets more then the east coast of north america because of the shape of the land.

14. How much longer will this activity last?

With all the vanishing sea ice, glad that the BBC got this on film while it could.

18. That scene is from "Human Planet" series...highly recommend

I received the 3-disc Blu-Ray version as a gift and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. Same production quality as Life and Planet Earth and some amazing footage in each episode...the building of the forest tree house is also very impressive...makes me hopeful that once we are done fucking up the climate there will still be SOME humans that survive and start over...just won't be Western "grow-grow-grow" civilization in its current incarnation!
