The subject of arctic marine technology, the treatment is directed at the developments and understanding of the various matters in relation to the North American scene. It must be acknowledged immediately, nevertheless, that the basic sciences and technology involved had their origin in Northern Europe and Russia where coexistence with ice and cold weather has long been a daily necessity of social, industrial and commercial life. The subject of arctic marine technology is an extremely wide one ranging from ships to many kinds of fixed and movable structures for use in ice-covered waters. An important aspect which is common to all of these many technologies is their interaction with the ice, either as a moving vehicle or as a stationary structure situated in a moving icefield. Much knowledge and experience of such interactions has been gained from the use of ships in ice and the underlying principles of ice resistance are addressed based upon ship technology under various arctic conditions.
