Abstract
"The design, construction and maintenance of spill containment dykes in the Arctic is reviewed. The review is based on a brief survey of the techniques and practices presently used by the petroleum, mining and transportation companies as well as government agencies that are operating in northern Canada. The survey revealed that there is no unified approach. It was concluded that there is a need for discussion between industry and the regulatory bodies in order to arrive at minimum standards for petroleum product spill containment dykes in the Arctic. Some areas requiring further research and development work are identified."--Abstract, page i.

Apart from the work of Boyes (1963) on the meridional advection of moisture across latitudes 65°, 70° and 80°N for January and July 1958, and the global scale study for the IGY year by Peixoto (1970), there are no data on the horizontal flux divergence of water vapour over the Arctic. Rasmusson's analysis (1968) of seasonal and annual flux divergence over North America extends only to Baffin Island"--Introduction, p. 5.

Abstract
"This paper deals principally with seismic risk in the northern Yukon and adjacent areas in which may lie a Mackenzie Valley transportation corridor for gas and/or oil pipelines and related facilities. Some reference is made to the earthquake history of Canada north of 60°N latitude, although detailed seismic risk calculations have not been made for this complete area. The paper also includes estimates of seismic risk parameters in eastern Alaska for the area from the Yukon-Alaska border to longitude 155°W, about 350 km west of Fairbanks"--Introduction, page [1].

The sites were also photographed from various altitudes in order to assess the possibility of using aerial photography to evaluate disturbance levels and terrain sensitivity to disturbance by vehicle traffic"--Summary, page [1].

"Norwegian Bay is the most eastern area of water lying within the Queen Elizabeth Islands. Ellesmere Island lies to the east, Axel Heiberg Island to the north, and Devon Island to the south. Physio-graphically, the Norwegian Bay can be divided into two zones. Low-lying sedimentary areas are found to the west of the bay, and to the east are the foothills of the Ellesmere Island cordillera. Prior to the survey, all sounding information available was along icebreaker routes, principally from Hell Gate to Eureka Fiord, and little was known of the submarine topography of the bay"--Introduction, page 3.

Abstract
"Surface water inventories of Canada's northern territories involve those areas of Canada draining into the Arctic Ocean, Hudson Bay (north of the Nelson River drainage basin) and to the Pacific Ocean through Alaska, The major river systems are the Yukon River Basin and the Mackenzie River Basin. The available surface water data for the northern areas are insufficient to describe flow variations and, in many cases, even the mean flow of the rivers. This report reviews the problems of established operation of the hydrometric network which is providing data needed for estimates of averages and streamflow variations and examines proposals for network expansion"--Abstract, p. v.
