Increasing activity in the development of natural resources in the cold regions of the world has led to a growing interest in commercial marine transportation systems and related facilities. Recognizing the need for dissemination of pertinent data and information critical to the design of vehicles, system components, and support facilities, the MS-9 Panel (Ocean Engineering in Frigid Environments) of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers identified the need for a selected bibliography for use by designers and planners. This special bibliography is intended to fill that need. This special bibliography contains 175 abstracts of selected reports and journal articles that cover the range of problems associated with marine systems that operate in ice-covered waters. The major emphasis of this material is on marine transportation rather than marine structures. The abstracts were selected from those that are contained in the computer tape records of the Maritime Research Information Service under subject area 01, Arctic and Cold Weather Operations, 1 of 24 subject areas used to classify material in MRIS.
