Polar icebreakers in a changing world: an assessment of U.S. needs / Committee on the Assessment of US Coast Guard Polar Icebreaker Roles and Future Needs.

Title: Polar icebreakers in a changing world: an assessment of U.S. needs / Committee on the Assessment of US Coast Guard Polar Icebreaker Roles and Future Needs.
Author (corporate): Committee on the Assessment of US Coast Guard Polar Icebreaker Roles and Future Needs.
Date: 2007.
Publisher: Washington, DC: National Academies Press
Abstract: Discusses future US needs for US icebreaking capability in Arctic and Antarctic. In Arctic, economic activity is expected to increase as southern extent of summer pack ice thins, providing opportunity for ice-capable ships to travel through these regions. In Antarctic, multiple national policy statements and Presidential Decision directives have reaffirmed importance of active and influential US presence in Antarctic and US leadership in Antarctic Treaty governance process.
