Series: AGI Webinars

Reduction in sea ice in the Arctic has eased travel conditions and thus resulted in increased shipping activity in the region. The Northwest Passage and Northeast Passage both cross a large number of marine ecosystems. Managing critical resources in the Arctic regions necessitates a solid understanding of how and to what extent the rising number of freight vessels traveling along these routes affects the surrounding ecosystems. This webinar will examine changes in Arctic ecosystems, survey patterns of increased shipping activity in the region, and review strategies for gathering and analyzing data about this complex region to support helpful decision-making.
