Beautiful Day in the Beaufort Sea

Beaufort Sea
A beautiful day downwind in the Beaufort Sea. The Beaufort Sea is part of the Arctic Ocean, located north of the Northwest Territories, the Yukon, and Alaska and west of Canada’s Arctic islands. The sea is named after British hydrographer Sir Francis Beaufort, who is best known for creating the Beaufort Wind Scale (when winds are described as Force 8, that means 8 on the Beaufort wind scale).
