82nd parallel north

The 82nd parallel north is a circle of latitude that is 82 degrees north of the Earth's equatorial plane.

It is situated almost entirely within the Arctic Ocean, passing north of both Franz Josef Land and Severnaya Zemlya, but it does pass through the northernmost parts of Ellesmere Island and Greenland. Alert, Nunavut at 82° 28′ N is the northernmost permanently inhabited place in the world.
