Scientific expedition for study of greenhouse gases in the Arctic starts from Arkhangelsk
«The expedition will last for 35 days, starting today (i.e. Friday). For the first time studies will be carried out on the shelf of the seas in the Eastern Arctic — the widest and shallowest shelf in the world ocean — using controlled underwater vehicles equipped with manipulators; sea floor seismic stations will be installed as well,» he noted.
It is planned as a part of the expedition to implement a multilayered approach to the study of the mysteries of the seas of the Eastern Arctic, including a set of joint meteorological and satellite observations. This will make it possible to study the migration of bubble methane from the surface of precipitation to the atmosphere and the georisks associated with changes in the state of underwater permafrost.
