ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECTS OF ARCTIC MARINE TRANSPORTATION AND DEVELOPMENT

This paper analyzes the unique environmental circumstances of the Arctic which challenge technology developed in the south and resource development directed from the south. Gaps in knowledge on the Arctic are identified. It is suggested that appreciation of the unique character of the arctic environment will lead to more appropriate decision-making concerning northern development activities with increased sensitivity to social impacts.
