Expedition leaves Novaya Zemlya
On the night of July 15, the Interdisciplinary Arctic Expedition participants wound up the Novaya Zemlya research station, thus completing the 2016 season. During the 2016 stay, the Belaya cabin was renovated; we installed an iron furnace inside it. The expeditionary group sealed the cabin by nailing up windows to prevent polar bears from entering.
