Melville Bay, Greenland
Melville Bay is a largely ice covered area with small scattered islands. The language of the Inuit people living on these islands is significantly different to the dialect of southern Greenland because of their isolation from the rest of Greenland. Though the weather conditions can be harsh, they are favorable to the plentiful wildlife that lives in Melville Bay. The narwhal and belugas take advantage of the cracks caused by the rough winds. Polar bears can be seen using these conditions to their advantage as well for hunting year round. The bay never fully defrosts during the summer because of its position high on the northwestern coast of Greenland.
