Goals and tasks of work of the drifting research station “North Pole-37”

Main goals and tasks of work of the drifting station “North Pole-37” are the following:

• To continue and develop the hydrometeorological and ecological monitoring of the central area of the Arctic basin, which is of interest of World Meteorological Organization;
• To carry out a complex of field research, which are necessary to improve the methods of hydrometeorological support of economic and research activity in the Arctic region;
• To investigate the features of environment processes caused by global and regional climate change or influencing the global and regional climate change.

Main work tasks of the drifting station “North Pole-37” are the following:

• to implement a program of standard meteorological, solar radiation observations and atmosphere sounding;
• to carry out a complex ecological monitoring of sea environment components;
• to investigate the thermodynamic processes and evolution of morphometric characteristics of sea ice cover;
• to define thermohaline and hydrochemical properties of water mass in the region of station drift, to measure current speed at different horizons;
• to estimate the seasonal variability of carbonate system components in surface mixed ocean layer and near surface atmosphere layer;
• to carry out the hydrobiological research;
• to carry out the hydrographic research including profiling of sediment layer in the region of station drift;
• experimental use of unmanned aircraft for:
- aero-meteorological research,
- estimation of mesoscale dynamics and mophometric characteristics of ice cover,
- ice reconnaissance during air-transport operations.
