Most of the Innuitian Mountains landforms are shaped by ice sheets and glaciers. The spectacular valley and fiord landscape
of parts of the archipelago was shaped during the glacial periods. On Baffin Island, the Laurentide ice spilled over the height-of-land and out toward Baffin Bay, carving out deep valleys and fjords, some reaching depths of more than 900 meter's. The Innuitian Region is surrounded by the Arctic Ocean. However, there are waterways that are nearby, such as Parry Channel and Baffin Bay.
