Changes In The Arctic Background And Issues For Congress
Changes in the Arctic: Background and Issues for Congress
Congressional Research Service: The diminishment of Arctic sea ice has led to increased human activities in the Arctic, and has
heightened interest in, and concerns about, the region’s future. Issues such as Arctic territorial
disputes; commercial shipping through the Arctic; Arctic oil, gas, and mineral exploration;
endangered Arctic species; and increased military operations in the Arctic could cause the region
in coming years to become an arena of international cooperation or competition.
