The Sawtooth Range is a jagged snow-capped mountain range on central Ellesmere Island, Nunavut, Canada. It lies between the Fosheim Peninsula and the Wolf Valley. The Sawtooth Range is a subrange of the Arctic Cordillera. It also runs through a Canadian Forces Station, called Eureka, a base used to study atmospheric changes.


Widespread clastic deposits, 80–1,800 m (260–5,910 ft) long, on the eastern side of the Sawtooth Range are the result of debris flows and slushflows.[1]
