Currently maritime traffic is able to pass from between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans for a limited period during the northern hemisphere summer each year via the  North West  and North East Passages. In contrast to the North West Passage, the North East Passage is now being used to ply commercial trade during the limited, but steadily increasing, summer window.

This painting depicts the scenario of an ice free Artic Ocean providing a trading route between Northern Europe and Japan that would be half that of the current shortest route through the Suez Canal and a route between Port Glasgow and Vancouver that would be almost 40% shorter  than the current shortest route through the Panama Canal.  It also depicts how Scapa Flow could potentially act as the Norther European hub for such a scenario.

Giclee print reproduction of original printed on an A2 sheet at 69% of original size.
