The extraordinary retreat of Arctic sea ice provides for greater marine access and potentially longer seasons of navigation throughout the Arctic Ocean. In addition, a major driver of increasing Arctic marine traffic remains natural resource development, particularly in the Russian Arctic. This talk will focus on recent marine operations and shipping in the U.S. maritime Arctic and along the length of the Russian marine Arctic.
