The challenges of man and machines operating in the harsh arctic winter environment have led to progressively more sophisticated marine vessels and machinery. The evaluation of arctic environmental conditions both weather and topography have challenged naval architects to continuously seek unique solutions to navigation and indeed vessel survival.
This presentation will be rich with photographs of arctic vessels, and enhanced by Peter Noble's firsthand experiences during his career as an arctic naval architect.
