The long awaited National Atlas of the Arctic is available from East View while copies last. The culmination of years of intensive scientific research boasts 495 pages of maps, illustrations, and text detailing circumpolar Earth above 66° North, with focus on the Russian Arctic. “The geopolitical implications surrounding commercial navigation and mineral development in the Russian Arctic region are profound,” said Kent Lee, East View’s President & CEO. “Sea ice melt has allowed container ships to ply a once unthinkable Northern Sea Route between Asia and Europe for the first time. This makes an authoritative resource like the National Atlas of the Arctic all the more essential for academic and commercial entities alike.” Almost 500 thematic, satellite, and nautical maps feature vivid and comprehensive overviews of Arctic geography; political subdivisions; and geological, climatic, glaciation and permafrost characteristics of the Arctic Ocean and the northernmost parts of the continents of Asia, Europe, and North America.
