The expedition of oceanologists from the Russian Academy of Sciences will head to the Kara sea and will last 43 days.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. An expedition from the Oceanology Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences set off on the ship Mstislav Keldysh to the Kara sea – scientists will study the impact of climate change on the state of Arctic ice.

The university’s press service said that oceanologists will receive new results to predict changes in marine Arctic natural complexes under the influence of climate trends and increasing anthropogenic pressure.

Along the entire route of the expedition, scientists under the leadership of Academician Mikhail Flint will measure hydrophysical, hydro-optical and biophysical parameters in the surface layer of the sea, and will also collect samples using 60 oceanological and 30 hydrophysical, biological, geological and geochemical stations. The expedition will last 43 days, TASS reports.

This is already the 14th expedition under the program The Siberian Arctic Seas’ Ecosystems. Research in the Kara, East Siberian and Laptev seas provides the basis for understanding changes in Arctic processes under the influence of natural and anthropogenic factors.

Previously, scientists found that over 160 years the temperature on Earth has increased by 1.7 degrees Celsius. This Is Taimyr also wrote that due to increased rainfall, ecosystems with new conditions are emerging in the Arctic.
