52nd Russian Antarctic Mission To Be Scientific Heaven

Research programme of the 52nd Russian Antarctic expedition will be extended due to federal funding, the head of the mission says.
      International Polar Year 2007-2008 includes development of the Vostok Lake project with 75 m of fresh core samples and World Ocean federal scientific project.
      Russian polar explorers plan to install automatic meteorological and geophysical stations for measuring long-term changes of glacial shield of the East Antarctica in order to detect current climatic influence on the glacier. Joint scientific geologic and geophysical marine research project of Russian and German scientists is also scheduled in the programme.
      Biology is one of the main issues of the 52nd Antarctic expedition scientists plan to perform complex benthos research of the coastal area near the Progress polar station, to reveal climatic impact on the marine flora and fauna composition near the Bellingshausen station and to describe microbiota of floating ices in the Commonwealth sea.
