Although the Bering Sea is situated in the same latitude as Great
Britain, its climate is much more severe.
Practically all of the Bering Sea water comes from the Pacific Ocean.
Thus, the Bering Sea is an

The Bering Sea consists of a large, deep basin in the southwest
portion, where depths as great as 9900 ft (3000 m) are encountered.
The Bering Sea connection with the Arctic Ocean (Chukchi Sea)
