A recent survey of geoscientists working in Arctic Canada indicates that major research interest in the north is focused on the structure and development of the polar margin, early Paleozoic tectonics, sedimentary processes and the geodynamic history of the northern Yukon region. A summary of major Arctic geo-scientific problems is presented here along with recommended future directions of study.
