Russia and China to study global warming
Academic Lavrentyev vessel

Russian-Chinese scientific expedition to the Far East will study climate change that has occured in the last two hundred thousand years. The expedition left Vladivostok for the Okhotsk Sea on the Academic Lavrentyev research vessel.



According to Victor Ptushkin, the ship captain, 29 Russian and 8 Chinese scientists are on board. They will spend a month, collecting water and soil samples from the sea bottom in the Sea of Okhotsk and the Atlantic Ocean. The completed tests will help to research climate and environmental changes in the Far Eastern seas, and assist the studies in water hydrology and hydrochemistry.


Russia and China are concerned about global warming rate over the last few years. This was the primary reason for this joint expedition. The scientists will try to plot and examine the weather processes in the last two hundred thousand years, which will allow to forecast the future climate change.
