The 2016 Interdisciplinary Arctic Expedition starts shortly. All the expedition participants are already on board and are assisting the crew in distant voyage preparations. It is a time-consuming and fairly complicated process. The preparations are now at their final phase: we check equipment and machinery and prepare motor boats. We have purchased more than two tons of food supplies and refueled the vessel.
This year, Kartesh is about to cover the distance of 5000 nautical miles in the Barents and the Kara Sea. We are looking forward for the expedition to start.
