Because of Arctic Ice Melt in the largest magnitude ever recorded in history in 2012, the north shoreline of Alaska eroded more than usual. This caused a variety of problems.

All of America’s shorelines erode continually to an extent, but Alaska’s erosion reached a point in the late 2000s that caused Indigenous fishing villages to pick up their Native Alaskan communities and move at least 40 miles inland.

At the same time, the long-sought Northwest Passage through Northern Canadian Provinces revealed itself for the first time under conditions of greater ice melt. Read about more of the changes at:
