Scientists from Russian Federation, United States and Sweden to Tell About Discoveries in Arctic in October
The participants of the scientific arctic expedition Swerus from Russia, the USA and Sweden will present the results of studies of climate change in the Arctic at the beginning of October in Stockholm, the scientific adviser to the Russian embassy in Sweden Andrei Yelistratov told to RIA Novosti.
“As it was promised by the Swedish colleagues, in early October, the icebreaker “Oden” must enter the port of Stockholm and there will be a presentation of research findings made during the trip to the Arctic Ocean. We agreed on October 4. It would be nice to Swedes and Russians to be able to visit the ship, I hope this will be a holiday,” Yelistratov said.
According to him, the first results of the expedition have been received: it was found a few dozen points of methane on the surface of the ocean. In accordance with the program of work, about 80 scientists studied the carbon cycle and its relation to the warming in the Arctic in the northern part of the Laptev Sea, East Siberian and Chukchi seas.
