To provide an historical context for the ACIA, Chapter 4 of this dissertation presents a review of the development of climate science in relation to the Arctic. This is based on published literature, including reviews, selected based on relevance to the historical context of the ACIA. The ambition has not been to provide historical accounts based on new research and consequently there was no effort to go back to primary documents. In a few places, new interview material has been used to complement pictures from the literature.
