The report provides guidance for resource managers involved with oil and gas development on Alaska's North Slope. The information is specific to the Arctic Coastal Plain, and much is drawn from the Prudhoe Bay area. Guidance on development impacts is most applicable in the Prudhoe Bay area and is generally applicable to other areas in the Arctic Coastal Plain. The review focuses on development impacts on tundra and the related changes in habitat value to waterbirds. Background information on development patterns and specific information on oilfield facilities are included. The three appendices contain specific information on vegetation and birds.
