The BEAUFORT SEA (French : mer de Beaufort) is a marginal sea of the Arctic Ocean
Arctic Ocean
, located north of the Northwest Territories , the Yukon , and Alaska
Alaska
, west of Canada\'s Arctic islands . The sea is named after hydrographer Sir Francis Beaufort . The major Mackenzie River empties into the Canadian part of the sea, west of Tuktoyaktuk , which is one of the few permanent settlements on the sea shores. The sea, characterized by severe climate, is frozen over most of the year. Historically, only a narrow pass up to 100 km (62 mi) opened in August–September near its shores, but recently due to climate change in the Arctic the ice-free area in late summer has greatly enlarged. Claims that the seacoast was populated about 30,000 years ago have been largely discredited (see below); present population density is very low
