Wikipedia, Feb. 2, 2011 (The Northern Sea Route (Russian: Severnyĭ morskoĭ putʹ, Severnyy morskoy putʹ [in rom.], shortened to Sevmorput) is a shipping lane from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean along the Russian Arctic coast from the Barents Sea, along Siberia, to the Far East. The route lies in Arctic waters and parts are free of ice for only two months per year. Before the beginning of the 20th century it was known as the North East Passage, and is still sometimes referred to by that name.)
