The culmination of years of intensive scientific research, the National Atlas of the Arctic was published in 2017 by Rosreestr Roskartografiia. With 495 pages of maps, illustrations, and text detailing circumpolar Earth above 66° North, this library-quality edition focuses on the Russian Arctic. It is the result of three years of intensive research on Russia's Arctic region by over 200 of Russia's leading scientists and cartographers.
Almost 500 thematic, satellite, and nautical maps in National Atlas of the Arctic’s 22 sections 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.
Also included are narratives on the history of marine expeditions in the Russian Arctic; its geomorphology, mineral resources, and development potential; climate, ocean, and coastal attributes; permafrost changes; soil characteristics; habitat and natural environment; indigenous populations and social structures; economic development; and an outlook to 2020 for exploration and monitoring via satellite.
This atlas will be a highly-prized reference work in any library, as it is important for researchers and scholars in scientific organizations, academic institutions, think tanks, and corporations.
