Dumping of Nuclear Wastes

The above report by the Russia Federation is but one of a number of recent studies of military related dumping of nuclear wastes into arctic seas.

Several conference reports have also dealt directly with these matters. They include Proceedings of the Workshop on Arctic Contamination, convened in Anchrorage, Alaska by the U.S. Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee, May 2-7, 1993; and Global Change and Arctic Terrestrial Ecosystems, the report of a conference sponsored by the Norwegian Institute for Nature Research in Oppdal, Norway, the same year.
