Spatial Trends Communities

1. Change in vessel traffic (km travelled per year) between the baseline period (1990-2000) and Phase 3 (2011-1015).

Red dots represent communities with greatest increase in shipping traffic compared to the blue dots, whictively. (published in Dawson et al. 2017 in Arctic)
