Abstract Renewed interest in the Arctic as a source of oil corresponds with the present effort to reformulate the laws of the sea to accommodate developing nations and endangered species as well as strategic national interests. A physical and environmental description of the Arctic, 90% of which is covered with ice, concludes that a special environmentally oriented legal regime is desirable. An organizational structure is outlined for such a regime and major obstacles are identified. Although further study may conclude that a separate regime is not needed, the study indicates that an environmentally centered perspective on the legal aspects of development is called for. 229 footnotes and references.
