Abstract
    The Arctic covers around 5% of the planet’s surface, but it is capturing a disproportionate amount of attention. With temperatures rising at twice the global rate, the region’s summer sea ice is shrinking rapidly, making access easier than ever before. At the same time, countries are racing to claim parts of the Arctic’s sea floor and the vast deposits of hydrocarbons that lie beneath it.
