The Arctic Ocean Basin is a large, deep depression that is situated under the cover of the Arctic permanent polar ice cap. This depression gradually slopes towards the seafloor in the shape of a basin or bowl. The Arctic Basin extends from the edge of the permanent ice cap in the northern part of the Beaufort Sea to the northern tip of Greenland. It runs along the northern edge of the Queen Elizabeth Islands to the tip of Ellesmere Island.
