NATIONAL WILDLIFE FEDERATION ARCTIC The arctic Environment Background Imagine a cold, windy place where at times the sun hardly shines and at other times of year barely sets.

It is a place with frozen ground, making it very difficult for. Climate change is affecting the Arctic environment and ecosystems at an accelerating speed, twice the rate of the global average. This is opening the Arctic to transportation and resource development and creating serious challenges for local communities and indigenous peoples.

Book Description. Bringing together interconnected discussions to make explicit the complexity of the Arctic region, this book offers a legal discussion of the ongoing territorial disputes and challenges in order to frame their impact into the viability of different governance strategies that are available at the national, regional and international level.

The Arctic Ocean may be the world's smallest, but it's becoming a critical region as climate change warms it more quickly than anywhere else on Earth.

ARCTIC ENVIRONMENT AND RESOURCES. Arctic Environment and Resources is a data reference book of practical significance to those concerned with the Arctic, whether they are students, researchers, industrialists, or government administrators.

The book is divided into Part I, Arctic Environment, and Part II, Arctic by: The Arctic Ocean’s warming effect and the surrounding land masses provide habitat for plants as well as user-friendly travel and migration routes for the local animal populations.

A Land Of Extremes. The Arctic region sees big fluctuations in climate and environment. The chapter discusses the challenges that are presented to the designing and engineering team in an arctic environment.

Specific challenges such as unstable soils, rivers and waterways crossings, calculations for designs including expansion and flexibility. atmospheric circulation patterns and increased cloud cover, related in part to the reduced sea ice extent (e.g., Overland et al., ).

The feedbacks and transitions occurring in this region will have significant implications for biodiversity, human benefits from the ecosystem, and other important processes within the Arctic and global system (Nilsson et al., ). This book presents current knowledge on chemistry and physics of Arctic atmosphere.

Special attention is given to studies of the Arctic haze phenomenon, Arctic tropospheric clouds, Arctic fog, polar stratospheric and mesospheric clouds, atmospheric dynamics, thermodynamics and radiative transfer as related to the polar environment. The threat of a major Arctic oil spill and the potential impacts on the region’s marine ecosystems are of concern for a broad range of U.S.

and international interests, including Alaskan natives and others who live in the region, citizens and organizations concerned about the health of the Arctic environment, agencies committed to protecting.
