Preliminary report on the Bering Strait scheme: R42-3/1960-1E-PDF

"The idea that it might be feasible and advantageous to build a dam across Bering Strait was first suggested in the last decade of the last century, in the belief that this would stop ice-laden Arctic water from passing through the Strait into the Bering Sea and thus ameliorate the climate of the North Pacific. In point of fact, very little, if any, Arctic water passes southward into the Bering Sea, but this was not known at the time."--Introduction.
