Navigating the North, An Assessment of the Environmental Risks of Arctic Vessel Traffic

Year: 2017
Language: english
Author: Ocean Conservancy
Genre: Research papers
Format: PDF
Quality: eBook
Pages count: 82
Description: As seasonal sea ice diminishes and industrial activity in the Arctic grows, Arctic waters will experience increasing
levels of vessel traffic. For example, transits of the Northern Sea Route — which connects the Atlantic and Pacific
oceans via the Arctic waters north of Russia — increased dramatically from 2010 to 2013. While vessel traffic in
many areas of the Arctic declined somewhat after 2014, it is anticipated to increase in future years. By 2025, vessel
traffic through the Bering Strait is projected to increase anywhere from 100% to 500% relative to 2013 traffic levels.
