This volume contains papers selected from the technical program pressnted at the Second International Symposium on Arctic Geology which was held in San Francisco, California, February 1–4, 1971. Sponsoring institutions were the Pacific Sections of The American Association of Petroleum Geologists, the Society of Economic Paleontologists and Mineralogists, and the Society of Exploration Geophysicists. The Northern California Geological Society was host for the event.

The Symposium and this Memoir have as a theme "Integration of Regional Geology of the Arctic Provinces." Papers are organized into seven topical groupings. The first four groups of technical papers deal with the regional Arctic geology of Canada, the Nordic countries, the USSR, and Alaska. The fifth section is devoted to comparisons in the North Atlantic borders. Papers in the sixth section are related to the general theme of the evolution of the Arctic Ocean basin. Economics of petroleum exploration and production are the main topics of papers in the seventh, and final, section of the volume.
