SEASAT ECONOMIC ASSESSMENT. VOLUME 6: ARCTIC OPERATIONS CASE STUDY AND GENERALIZATION

The hypothetical development and transportation of Arctic oil and other resources by ice breaking super tanker fleets to the continental East Coast are discussed. The utilization of SEASAT ice mapping data is shown to contribute to a more effective transportation operation through the Arctic ice by reducing transportation costs as a consequence of reduced transit time per voyage.
