Abstract

This paper examines climatic and related environmental changes occurring in the Arctic and discusses how the changes may cascade throughout the world, with particularly pronounced effects in parts of Eurasia. The paper outlines numerous manifestations of a warming Arctic climate, including reduced Arctic ice cap thickness and extent, reduction of the continuous permafrost zone, and changes in the conditions of terrestrial and marine habitats in the Far North. It explores how these changes have already affected human activities in the area, creating both potential opportunities and problems in Arctic marine transportation, access to renewable and non-renewable resources, economic development, national security, and safety
