MMBI application was supported in FASO


On February 22, 2017, a doctor of biological sciences Pavel R. Makarevich, a deputy director of the Institute, took part in the regular meeting of the FASO Council on the hydrosphere. The main issue on discussion was the development of expedition activities by Russian scientists in the Spitsbergen archipelago. On the proposal of MMBI, time limits for performance of marine scientific research in the Arctic on the RV ”Dalnie Zelentsy” (the state task of the Institute) was increased for 10 day. This extra period is needed to organize a multidisciplinary coastal expedition in Svalbard waters, in which geophysicists, geographers, glaciologists and other specialists of the Russian Academy of Sciences can participate.
