This book provides a comprehensive overview of the Arctic region’s rapidly changing physical and human dimensions. Researched by specialists in each regional area, the articles introduce the information in an accessible form, while still maintaining the hard data designed to make this a necessary book for all Arctic researchers, with many including illustrations (both black and white and color) furthering the discussions. The book demonstrates increasing levels of communication between natural scientists, social scientists and local stakeholders in the North. After discussions on the physical structure, life sciences, social and political facets of the arctic are thoughts on anthropogenic impacts on the Arctic, including regional and global consequences and policy responses.
