The Chukchi and Beaufort seas are off the north coast of Alaska in the Arctic Ocean proper; the Bering Sea is subarctic, located between Siberia and Alaska soup of the Bering Strait and north of the Aleutian Island chain.
Matthew, Nun~vak, and the Pribilof islands are in the eastern Bering Sea shelf.
Finally, winter conditions in the Chukchi and Beautort seas produce fast ice along Be coast that interacts with the offshore open Arctic Ocean current and wind-driven free-floating sea ice to cause an extensive, somewhat predictable, system of flaw leads and polynyas off the Chukchi and Beautort coasts eastward to Be Canadian Archipelago.

The contour lines of the approximate ice edge at six-day intervals are derived from the 19GHz channel of the DMSP SSM/I instrument, which measures passive microwave radiation from the sea surface.
Because natural microwave radiation emitted from the earth is affected differently by the presence of sea water and ice, it can be used to determine the extent of the polar ice cover, as well as other surface properties.

 Marine Climate and Relative Sea Level Across Central Beringia
During the last glacial maximum sea level was lowered by ~125m.The size of Beringia increased dramatically, and the flow of fresher, nutrient rich Pacific water into the Chukchi Sea was cut off due to the resulting emergence of the Bering Strait.
This lack of understanding is partly due to the fact that relative sea level in Beringia is likely to have differed from eustatic sea level as a result of tectonic and possible glacio-eustatic effects.
Yet the history of these variables in the Bering and the Chukchi Seas is not known well enough to integrate with the evidence for terrestrial climate change.

Stationary observations began in the Kara Sea (Dickson Island) in 1933, in the Laptev Sea (Tiksi Bay) in 1934, in the Chukchi Sea (Cape Schmidt) in 1935, and in the East- Siberian Sea (Ambarchik Bay) in 1939.
Only 30-40 years ago, the sea level station benchmarks were related to the Baltic System (Kronshtadt gauge) using geodetic methods.
The mean monthly sea level data based on four measurements per day are very close to the observations with 1-hour interval.
