Abstract
The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) Alaska Outer Continental Shelf Regional Office (AKOCSR) has the delegated authority to regulate stationary sources of emissions from oil and gas activities proposed within the Chukchi Sea and Beaufort Sea Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Planning Areas adjacent to the North Slope Borough (NSB) of Alaska. Proposed operators on the Arctic OCS are required to comply with the U.S. Department of Interior (USDOI)/BOEM Air Quality Regulatory Program (AQRP), established under 30 CFR Part 550, Subpart C, and BOEM has the obligation to implement the authority provided in OCS Lands Act (OCSLA) Section 5(a)(8).

Abstract
The Arctic Nearshore Impact Monitoring in Development Area III (ANIMIDA III) Project was designed to update previous evaluations of impacts that may have resulted from offshore oil and gas exploration and production in the coastal Beaufort Sea. The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), Alaska Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Region previously sponsored the following three major environmental monitoring programs in the Development Area: (1) the Beaufort Sea Monitoring Program (BSMP, 1984–1989), (2) the ANIMIDA Project (1999–2002), and (3) the continuation of the Arctic Nearshore Impact Monitoring in the Drilling Area (cANIMIDA) Project (2004–2007). As part of this four-year ANIMIDA III, Olgoonik Fairweather (OF), in conjunction with a team of scientists, conducted two seasons of offshore in open water and one season of spring sampling field collection in ice programs. A team of scientists from the University of Alaska-Fairbanks (UAF), The University of Texas at Austin (UTA), Florida Institute of Technology (FIT), Battelle Memorial Institute (Battelle), Kinnetic Laboratories Inc. (KLI), and OF comprise the project team.

Abstract
The Arctic Research Consortium of the United States (ARCUS) has been connecting Arctic research since 1988. ARCUS achieves our Vision and serves our Mission through the four Goals of networking, communications, education, and research community support & facilitation. Guided by our Values, we connect Arctic research across the boundaries of organizations, disciplines, geographies, sectors, knowledge systems, and cultures. Based in the United States, ARCUS serves a globally connected, diverse Arctic research community, with an emphasis on connecting U.S. researchers. We are supported by government agencies, foundations, and others who share our enthusiasm for connected Arctic research.
The Arctic research community advances understanding of the Arctic through science, Indigenous knowledge, technology, and education. ARCUS promotes the application of this knowledge to Arctic and global challenges, and helps the research community to address questions that require the collaborative skills and resources of scientists, engineers, educators, Indigenous knowledge holders, and others. To further advance a holistic understanding of the Arctic, ARCUS works collaboratively with other boundary-crossing organizations with shared goals and objectives, such as the U.S. Arctic Research Commission (USARC), the Polar Research Board (PRB), the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), the Arctic Institute of North America (AINA), the European Polar Board (EPB), the Arctic Council, the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS), the University of the Arctic (UArctic), and Polar Educators International (PEI).
It is the intent of ARCUS to enhance the engagement of Arctic Indigenous communities, organizations, and peoples in research, recognizing that much research occurs within Indigenous communities, on their land, and/or utilizes Indigenous knowledge; that Indigenous Knowledge holds its own methodologies, validation, and evaluation processes; the need for Indigenous community-driven research; and that Indigenous communities are a vital part of the ‘research community’. We will focus on institutionalizing intersectional engagement with a clear focus and extra effort. We also will be applying knowledge of the ethical ways of engaging this marginalized community and respectful language.

Abstract
From Introduction: Organic contaminants entering soils pose a threat to soil functions and properties (Valentín et al., 2013; White & Claxton, 2004; Yaron et al., 2012). In freezing soils, especially permafrost-affected soils, the freezing process leads to changes in soil’s physical and chemical properties (Yershov, 1998). Soils represent a complex heterogeneous, multi-phase system, with a large interfacial area, which causes phenomena such as adsorption of water and chemicals, ion exchange and capillarity (Hillel, 2003). Therefore the interaction of freezing soils and organic contaminants is characterized by high complexity and a variety of processes, whose effects may accumulate or abate each other.

Abstract
This guide describes the conditions for exploration in Finland’s protected areas. It is intended for exploration and mining companies, and for permit and supervisory authorities. The guide also describes the most important matters to be considered when carrying out exploration and mining in the Sami Homeland and the reindeer herding area in northern Finland. The ecological values of the areas and the legal basis for their protection determine what measures can be carried out in each area. The guide is in two parts. The first chapters sum up the legal basis for exploration, describe the different types of protected area, and the principles and procedures for exploration in protected areas and the Sami Homeland. The appendices give a detailed description of the protected areas and the exploration and mining process. They also give instructions on how to apply for claim rights and survey permits in protected areas. The purpose is to provide the prime target groups (Finnish and foreign exploration and mining companies, and the permit and supervisory authorities) with all the necessary facts.

Abstract
This bibliography is an amalgamation of fifty-five separate bibliographies compiled by Dr. Robert Fortuine during his medical career in Alaska, which lasted from 1963 to 1977. This master bibliography contains around 3000 unannotated references on medicine and public health in Alaska and health aspects of arctic exploration. A large number of entries deal with tuberculosis. Other topics represented are "pre-contact" health, history of Alaska Native health care, history of the Alaska Department of Health, role of the U.S. Public Health Service, and traditional medicine. Dr. Fortuine reviewed every Governors' and the U.S. Surgeon General's reports in regard to Alaska content.
