The climate of the Arctic is characterized by long, cold winters and short, cool summers. There is a large amount of variability in climate across the Arctic, but all regions experience extremes of solar radiation in both summer and winter. Some parts of the Arctic are covered by ice (sea ice, glacial ice, or snow) year-round, and nearly all parts of the Arctic experience long periods with. in northern Canadian communities and to a cleaner Arctic environment. In the first phase of the Arctic Renewable Energy program, WWF-Canada, along with project partner Waterloo Institute for Sustainable Energy (WISE) performed pre-feasibility studies to predict what the use of renewable energy in northern community grids would look Size: 5MB. In particular he co-edited the book entitled “The Russian Gas Matrix: How Markets are Driving Change” and has more recently published papers on the future of Russian oil production, tight oil in Russia, Arctic oil, East Siberia’s hydrocarbon export potential, Russia’s gas export strategy and Russia’s energy relations with China. Future Energy focuses on all the types of energy available to us, taking into account a future involving a reduction in oil and gas production and the rapidly increasing amount of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. It is unique in the genre of books of similar title in that each chapter has been written by a scientist or engineer who is an.

  The March HKS Library Arctic Book Display celebrates the important Arctic research undertaken by HKS faculty and scholars, both as independent researchers, and in association with the HKS Belfer Center's Arctic HKS Library also developed an Arctic Studies collection to support Harvard student research for the Belfer Center's Arctic Innovators Program and to support.
