From the Cornell Birds of North America species account:

Two subspecies recognized based on size, only one of which is known to occur in North American waters in any season. Larger, nominate A. t. torda Linnaeus (1758) breeds e. North America, w. and nw. Greenland, Jan Mayen, the Baltic Sea area, sw. and n. Norway, and nw. Russia. Overwinters off e. North America, sw. Greenland, and Norway; also in North Sea, Skagerrak, and Kattegat, and in Baltic Sea (Brown 1985g, Cramp 1985a, Bräger 1995, Durinck and Falk 1996, Lyngs and Kampp 1996, Barrett et al. 2000). Smaller A. t. islandica C. L. Brehm (1831) breeds Iceland, Faeroe Is., British Isles, and in very small groups at Brittany, France, and at Helgoland, Germany. Overwinters around Faeroe Is. and British Isles, in North Sea, Skagerrak, Kattegat, and other Danish waters, Bay of Biscay and south as far as Morocco, some into w. Mediterranean Sea (Lloyd 1974, Mead 1974, Brown 1985g, Cramp 1985a, Lyngs and Kampp 1996, Camphuysen 1998).

Description

from the Cornell Birds of North America species account -

Five subspecies recognized following Nettleship (Nettleship 1996), 3 of these occurring in North America: 2 in Pacific and 1 in Atlantic (Storer 1952a). Genetic evidence clearly distinguishes Pacific and Atlantic forms, apparently separated since Pleistocene (Friesen et al. 1996b; see Distribution: fossil history, above). For measurements of North American races, see Appendix 3; colony locations and numbers given in Appendix 1 (western), and Appendix 2 (eastern).

U. a. inornata Salomonsen, 1932. Breeds e. Korea and Japan northward to e. Russia east to North America south to nw. British Columbia. Larger than U. a. californica .

U. a. californica (Bryant, 1861). Breeds British Columbia south to California (Appendix 1). Smaller than U. a. inornata .

U. a. aalge (Pontoppidan, 1763). Breeds Atlantic coast of North America, Greenland, Iceland, and nw. Europe east to Novaya Zemlya. Both Pacific races larger, especially in wing length, than nominate U. a. aalge .
