Floating Arctic University returns to Arkhangelsk from research expedition to Arctic

The Professor Molchanov research vessel carrying participants of the Floating Arctic University project has returned to Arkhangelsk from an expedition to examine the ice, the Northern Arctic Federal University reports.

The Floating Arctic University is an innovative educational project that provides young Arctic researchers and explorers with knowledge and hands-on experience in the real-world conditions of the northern seas. Fifty-three people took part in the university’s expedition, including students and lecturers from the Northern Arctic Federal University, the Lomonosov Moscow State University and the Russian Hydrometeorological University. The expedition covered over 4,000 miles through the White Sea, the Barents Sea and the Kara Sea.

“Aside from the common objectives of oceanographic and meteorological study, the expedition looked into some new areas of research, for example the biological research of the surface and examination of the ice in the Arctic region,” research supervisor of the expedition Natalya Byzova said.

The floating university will set off from Arkhangelsk on its third journey this year on August 6.

The project is supported by the Northern Arctic Federal University, the Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring, and the Russian Geographical Society.
