ABSTRACT
The article reports on the release of an Arctic road map that will guide the policy, strategy and investments of the U.S. Navy by the chief of naval operations in November 2009. The Task Force Climate Change under the leadership of oceanographer Rear Admiral Dave Titley has developed the road map. The Navy believes there will be commercial interests in the Arctic due to potential resource extraction and shorter shipping routes. Ensuring naval readiness is cited as one of the aims of the road map.
