#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The North-2024 polar expedition’s first flight arrived at the airfield of the research station Ice base Cape Baranov on the Bolshevik island of the Severnaya Zemlya archipelago on a special flight from Hatanga.

It consists of 11 scientists from the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute (AARI), whose task is to continue high-latitude Arctic studies of modern changes in the Arctic region’s climate system.

In particular, specialists will conduct comprehensive glaciological, hydrological, paleographic, medical, permafrost, environmental and hydrochemical studies. The station will also continue to carry out annual observation cycles in the fields of meteorology, aerology, geophysics, ice science, oceanography and air pollution.

In addition to the polar explorers, the special flight delivered to the station the necessary scientific equipment, food, parcels and letters from relatives and friends of the polar explorers who have been working at the scientific base for more than seven months.

The research station Ice Base Cape Baranov was founded in 1986, at that time, up to 80 scientists worked there. There was an airfield at the station that received aircraft such as Il-76 and An-22 Antei. In 1996, the station was mothballed, but in 2013, research resumed again. From that moment to the present, year-round observations have been carried out there in a variety of areas.
