Kara Sea

Kara Sea (Karaz=" Black"), that part of the Arctic Ocean which lies between Novaia Zemlia and the boundary between Russia and Siberia. The name is also given to a bay on the same coast, and to a river which enters it, after a course of 150 miles, beginning in the Ural Mountains. The Kara Sea has been explored by Nordenskjold and Wiggins. It is navigable from July to September.
