Cumulative Environmental Effects of Oil and Gas Activities on Alaska’s North Slope (2003)
This book identifies accumulated environmental, social, and economic effects of oil and gas leasing, exploration, and production on Alaska’s North Slope. Economic benefits to the region have been accompanied by effects on the roads, infrastructure, and activities of oil and gas production on the terrain, plants, animals, and peoples of the North Slope. While attempts by the oil industry and regulatory agencies have reduced many of the environmental effects, they have not been eliminated. The book makes recommendations for further environmental research related to environmental effects.
