Every spring, the dark open waters of the Arctic Ocean meet the frozen sea ice along a line called the floe edge. Sometimes also called “the line of life,” the floe edge forms a dynamic ecosystem where Arctic sea and land mammals, shorebirds, and humans congregate around large, flat, floating chunks of sea ice (floes) that move with the tide and melt with the changing temperatures. This “edge” (or sinaa in Inuktitut, the Inuit language) is constantly forming and re-forming, an active site that takes its name and shape not from fixity but from continuous movement.
