ABSTRACT
The article reports on the visibility of the Northwest Passage in the Arctic area in 2007. Its diminished ice content improved the shipping industry, as navigation in the area was unhindered by sea ice from the middle part of August until October. Visibility is still impeded by underwater obstacles and unpredictable weather. Environmentalists oppose shipping in the area because they believe it threatens the fragile ecosystem of the region.
