Abstract:

Previous studies by the National Research Councils Marine Board and by the National Petroleum Council have identified engineering-related research and development needed to support offshore development in U.S. Arctic waters. This report focuses these earlier reports on sea ice mechanics, seafloor engineering in the Arctic and polar engineering needs in the 1980s and also considers the support requirements for navigation, icebreaking as well as university research and education for Arctic engineering. Recommendations are made affecting the means of enhancing technical support of Arctic Ocean engineering and operations.
