SMMI-LR Seminar Series 2015

Those monitoring the effects of climate change agree that the pace of environmental transformation currently taking place in the Arctic is unprecedented. Such changes provide opportunities for business in areas as diverse as energy extraction, shipping and tourism. But these opportunities will only be fully realised if the businesses involved are able to manage the substantial, and unique, risks which exist in the region. There will be winners and losers as the impacts of climate change continue to shape the Arctic future. There is significant level of uncertainty about the Arctic‘s future, both technologically, environmentally and economically. The lecture aims to highlight the opportunities and challenges associated with different possible scenarios with particular emphasis on technical challenges.
