Abstract
The paper describes the present state-of-knowledge of the dominant mechanisms found in the Canadian Arctic. However, since the ambient noise conditions depend strongly on the characteristics of the ice cover, which change significantly from one area to another and with time of year, it is convenient first to identify the various ice regimes of the Canadian Arctic and their related dominant noise sources. Other sources of noise, including wind-induced surface waves, acoustic vocalizations of marine mammals, current-induced turbulent flow noise, thermal noise and man-made noises related to shipping and resource exploration, will not be discussed.
