Research work as part of expedition
During two days, July 9 and July 10, the LMSU Marine Research Center specialists in collaboration with the Polar Expedition Kartesh project researched bottom landscapes between Vaygach, Matveev and Dolgy islands with a “SuperGNOM” ROV. Apart from that, the researchers collected macrobenthic smaples with two bottom grabbers (Ocean-0.1 and Ocean-0.25) to monitor the seabed ecosystems of the Pechora Sea and to assess the nutritive base of the Atlantic walrus. Simultaneously, researchers made initial assessments of the results at the onboard lab.
