Scientists to study permafrost thawing in Arctic seas

The route will lie across the Kara, Laptev and East Siberian seas. In September, about 80 scientists from Russia, China and Sweden will set out on an expedition to study the ecology and biochemical changes, caused by the thawing permafrost in the East ArcticТs seas and along the Northern Sea Route, the Tomsk Polytechnic UniversityТs press service said on Friday.

The probing system GEOTECH SPT NOVA performs geotechnical investigations soil by penetrating a probe with conical tip. Data transfer carry out simultaneously on multiple channels: point resistance, local friction, pore pressure, tilt. The data transfer carry out both on cable and the rod by the acoustic signal to the microphone.  The data is then transmitted though the interface unit to computer, where is their final processing. The result is given in real time as diagram on the screen. (Fig.1)
