Expert sounds alarm about dangerous Arctic waters: most charts years out of date / Jane George.

Title: Expert sounds alarm about dangerous Arctic waters: most charts years out of date / Jane George.
Author(s): George, Jane.
Date: 2010.
In: Nunatsiaq News. (2010.), Vol. 38(29) (2010)
Abstract: Discusses extent to which Arctic waters are inadequately charted, in light of recent grounding of Clipper Adventurer near Kugluktuk. Notes that only 10% of Arctic waters are charted to modern-day standards; also that annual surveys of certain areas are limited in scope, and are not progressing fast enough for needs of "industrial" shipping (in particular cruise liners)
