Arthur Chilingarov celebrates his 80th birthday

Today, Artur Chilingarov, President of the Association of Polar Explorers, a member of the Board of Trustees of Arctic World Club, celebrates his 80th anniversary. Congratulations from the Arctic World Club President and the Arcticmorgeo Chairman of the Board of Directors Sergey Egorov.

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 Arctics seas and along the Northern Sea Route, the Tomsk Polytechnic Universitys press service said on Friday.

Results of the expedition to Iceland

The Arcticmorgeo scientific expedition to Iceland is successfully completed!

“The tasks assigned to the research team have been completed in full volume. Collection of materials continued throughout the entire trip. For a number of observational studies we gor more data than planned. And we were very lucky with the weather! We have serious work on analyzing the data ahead of us and summing up the results of the expedition,” said the Chairman of the Board of Directors, Arcticmorgeo, Sergey Egorov.

Melting glaciers of Iceland as a result of climate change on the planet can lead to an increase in the activity of numerous volcanoes located in the territory of the state.

The activity of Icelandic volcanoes decreased markedly in the relatively cold period between 3.5 and 2.5 thousand years BC, when the thickness of the Icelandic glaciers increased significantly. According to the observations of scientists, about 600 years passed between the onset of cooling and a noticeable decrease in volcanic activity. Now the volcanic systems of Iceland are no longer experiencing the influence exerted on them by the so-called Little Ice Age of the 16th-19th centuries, but it is still difficult to say when exactly the eruptions on the island can become frequent. Therefore, it is important to fix the influence of climate fluctuations on the processes of formation and melting of Iceland’s glaciers.
