The Navy is planning ahead for the continued melting of the Arctic ice cap. With predictions that the ice cap could disappear by 2050, a symposium was held last year on Naval Operations in an Ice-Free Arctic. The report, which was released earlier this month but I haven't found on the web yet, is reported to focus on the challenges to the navy in patrolling a new ocean.
