Abstract   |   Authors   |   References
The position of the North of Russia in various geographical dimensions: circumpolar, zonal (latitudinal), meridional, structural and territorial, is consid-ered. On the basis of the primary data of district and regional municipalities the author has carried out estimation of number and dynamics of the population in three zones of the North of Russia and executed typological groupings with reference to the systems of resettlement of the population and economic specialization of territories. The analysis of "anatomy" of the North has shown that the basic part of problems of social and economic policy should be considered at regional and local levels with reference to those territorial and economic systems which have already been formed, but require modernization on the basis of the technologies adapted for extreme and difficult climatic conditions. The applied part of studying the problems of the North is co-ordinated to the theory of the territorial (geosystem) organization of economy
