Seven hardware-software complexes developed in Russia will help scientists to observe the icebergs movements in the Arctic, and also to monitor the water pollution degree, seismic activity and climate change.

Russian Scientists Created Unique Apparatus for Icebergs Tracking

Two complexes are designed to monitor seismic activity, which often causes the separation of icebergs from glaciers in coastal zones. Two more vehicles will fix a trajectory along which drift huge ice blocks. The fifth and sixth devices will analyze climatic data and make forecasts. Finally, the seventh complex should compile an interactive map of Arctic pollution by various toxins groups. To do this, you will need to take water and soil samples from the islands.

The devices presentation will take place within the framework of the forum "The Arctic - Territory of Dialogue", which will be held in Arkhangelsk, Russia, on March 29-30.
