This publication contains the results of the richest and comprehensive professional study ever undertaken of the conditions and factors determining both range and scope of maritime activities in Arctic region. Moreover, subject study is the first one to compare the three transportation corridors available today in the subject area.
Among the factors addressed during the study there were geopolitics and global warming problem, modern trends in the international economics, available resources, military affairs and many other interdependent and interacting factors.
