The Arctic is a place of great challenges and great rewards. A century ago, it was whale oil; today, it is motor oil. The increasing open water in the warmer months is attracting cruise ships to tour the Arctic. Significant offshore oil and natural gas deposits are of great interest to an oil-dependent economy. But the history of the Arctic is full of surprises for the unwary and the unprepared, despite native peoples having managed to live there for thousands of years. Oil spills or maritime emergencies can--and do--arise a long way off from assistance. Legendary Arctic storms are, if anything, becoming more intense and dangerous. All this is in an area inaccessible by roads or by sea except for icebreakers the majority of the year. It is of extreme interest to the US Coast Guard, charged with protecting seafarers, enforcing laws, and facilitating commerce.

Technological advances, increased energy demand, and political events have coalesced in recent years to make the extraction of hydrocarbon energy resources in the arctic attractive. U.S. efforts in this direction have begun on Alaska's North Slope and are poised to expand into offshore areas. These developments could have, particularly in conjunction with marine transportation, a dramatic impact on the U.S. Coast Guard and especially its icebreaking mission. Evaluation of this impact is approached by a background review of the Coast Guard's icebreaking role and historical development in Alaska; and by evaluation of five issues which seem to be primary determinants of the relevant future. These include (1) energy development; (2) energy-related transportation; (3) concerns for the natural and social environment; (4) Canadian arctic developments; and (5) the international perspective. Trends in these five issue areas are then integrated to formulate a projection of future Coast Guard icebreaking requirements in the Alaskan arctic. (Author).
