Arctic - Arctic - The economy: The Arctic has been little exploited for economic purposes, but, because it contains 8 percent of the surface of the planet and 15 percent of the land area, significant resources (both renewable and nonrenewable) may be reasonably assumed to be present.

Some of these are known—and being utilized—but there could be enormous expansion if it is required and. ARCTIC ENVIRONMENT AND RESOURCES. Arctic Environment and Resources is a data reference book of practical significance to those concerned with the Arctic, whether they are students, researchers, industrialists, or government administrators.
