Russian-German-Swiss expedition ARCTIC CENTURY returned with precious samples and data to study the impact of climate change in the Russian Arctic
On 6 September 2021 at 9:00 am, the Arctic Century expedition – celebrating 100 years of the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute in St. Petersburg – safely returned to the port of Murmansk completing a journey that started 4 weeks earlier. A team of 59 scientists from 17 countries gathered data in the Barents, Kara and Laptev Seas as well as on rarely accessible islands in the western high Arctic. All the way to almost 83° north, scientists carried out an extensive interdisciplinary working program at 125 sites on land and at sea as well as measurements of atmospheric parameters in real-time during the whole cruise track.
