Aberdeen Lake, 1100 km2, elev 80 m, maximum length 91 km, is located in Nunavut, 213 km south of the Arctic Circle. It is part of a closely linked chain (west to east: Lakes Beverly, Aberdeen and Schultz) of elongated lakes that, together with Baker Lake, form a 2987 km2 drainage basin for the Thelon River before it empties into Hudson Bay via the 160 km long Chesterfield Inlet. Baker Lake, the only community within close proximity (144 km E) is the sole inland settlement of the Inuit in Nunavut. Aberdeen Lake was named for Governor General Lord Aberdeen(1893-98) by geologist Joseph B. Tyrrell.
