A new project to monitor natural hazards in the Arctic

  • A 3.7 mln ton iceberg in the Shtokman gas field in the Barents Sea
  • Research and expedition vessel Mikhail Somov tugs a 200,000 ton iceberg
  • Detecting a polar cyclone using an unprocessed satellite image, left, and an integral humidity field
  • A GPS monitoring station on the Esmark Glacier
  • A three-component ESM seismic station at the foot of the Esmark Glacier
  • The broadband three-component PYR seismic station in the village of Piramida
  • Installing a microphone at the seismic and infrasonic PYR complex in the village of Piramida
  • Mounting an Omega seismic monitor in the Franz Josef Land Archipelago
  • Collecting sea water samples to detect polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons near Svalbard
  • Collecting soil samples to detect ecotoxicants in the village of Barentsburg, Svalbard
  • In the Arktika laboratory in the Center for Collective Use of Research Equipment at the Northern (Arctic) Federal University
