There are a number of areas where fundamental geotechnical research is required so that non-conservative, rational and safe design of artificial exploration islands can be achieved. Some of these research requirements are identified by examining current geotechnical practice and experience in the Arctic and highlighting the deficiencies of the existing technology and understanding.
