DEVELOPMENT OF ARCTIC TRANSPORTATION IN RUSSIA

(Download article in PDF)
Abstract

The Arctic - is the most northern region of the earth. Water surface in the Arctic is shared between the Arctic Ocean and 10 adjacent seas, six of which wash the northern coast of Russia. So far, the navigation through the Arctic has been hampered due to the prolonged freezing, but global warming may significantly change this situation. This route is considerably shorter than the other transport corridors, and can significantly reduce the cost of transporting goods. The role of the Northern Sea Route persists on several objective reasons: geopolitical, political, geo-economic and economic. That is why the time has come to adopt a federal law on “the Northern Sea Route” and create the proper administration.

Keywords

Northern Sea Route, Arctic Transportation, the federal law “On the NSR”, Arctic navigation, transport corridors.

KEY APPROACHES TO CREATION OF HARBOR ENVIRONMENTAL SECURITY SYSTEM

(Download article in PDF)
Abstract

Sea ports are characterized as objects of high environmental and industrial risks. Decision-making process for prevention and elimination of emergency situation requires significant amount of operational information, especially determination of the source of impact. That’s why creation of an integrated comprehensive environmental monitoring system in ports is an important and urgent issue. The creation process of the harborage monitoring system includes overall assessment of administrative, regulatory, environmental, technical and technological aspects that will optimize the procedure of decision-making in emergency situations at ports and improve port ecological status.

Keywords

environmental security, environmental monitoring, marine port, prevention and elimination of emergencies, harborage monitoring system.
