Oil pollution and black carbon in the Arctic: Dynamic shipping governance in a rapidly warming region

Chapter 20 explores the management of increased shipping activities in the Arctic Ocean, which is changing dramatically due to regional warming and declines in the extent and thickness of sea ice.

Container vessels diversion pattern to trans-Arctic shipping routes and GHG emission abatement potential

ABSTRACT Global shipping pattern is widely used to assess vessel-borne pollution risk and inform environmental policymaking. Due to ice retreat under climate change, new trans-Arctic navigation

Toward Sustainable Arctic Shipping: Perspectives from China

As a near-Arctic state and a shipping power, China shows great interest in developing polar shortcuts from East Asia to Europe against the background of shrinking Arctic sea ice. Due to the Arctic’s

Application of rapidly improving battery technology for direct electrification of intraregional container shipping

International maritime shipping—powered by heavy fuel oil—contributes 2.5%, 12%, and 13% of global anthropogenic CO2, SO2, and NOx emissions, respectively. The direct electrification of vessels has

Globalization-Driven Industry Relocation Significantly Reduces Arctic PAH Contamination.

It is found that "North-to-South" industry transfer could reduce trade-related BaP contamination by 60% in the Arctic, and global emission inventories of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons embodied in the production and consumption of goods and services are implemented.

Rapid battery cost declines accelerate the prospects of all-electric interregional container shipping

International maritime shipping—powered by heavy fuel oil—is a major contributor to global CO 2 , SO 2, and NO x emissions. The direct electrification of maritime vessels has been underexplored as a



Black carbon from ships: a review of the effects of ship speed, fuel quality and exhaust gas scrubbing

Abstract. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has moved to address the health and climate impact of the emissions from the combustion of low-quality residual fuels within the commercial

Arctic shipping emissions inventories and future scenarios

Abstract. This paper presents 5 km×5 km Arctic emissions inventories of important greenhouse gases, black carbon and other pollutants under existing and future (2050) scenarios that account for

Light absorbing carbon emissions from commercial shipping

Extensive measurements of the emission of light absorbing carbon aerosol (LAC) from commercial shipping are presented. Vessel emissions were sampled using a photoacoustic spectrometer in the Gulf of

Black carbon emissions from in-use ships: a California regional assessment

Abstract. Black carbon (BC) mass emission factors (EFBC; g BC (kg fuel)−1) from a variety of ocean-going vessels have been determined from measurements of BC and carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations

Bounding the role of black carbon in the climate system: A scientific assessment

Black carbon aerosol plays a unique and important role in Earth's climate system. Black carbon is a type of carbonaceous material with a unique combination of physical properties. This assessment

Arctic surface temperature change to emissions of black carbon within Arctic or midlatitudes

In this study, we address the question of how sensitive the Arctic climate is to black carbon (BC) emitted within the Arctic compared to BC emitted at midlatitudes. We consider the emission‐climate
