Russia sees the Arctic region as an area of special interest in terms of economic, geopolitical and social development. Organizing and conducting complex real-time monitoring of meteorological, glacial, hydrophysical, geochemical, geophysical, biological and other parameters in the whole water column of Arctic Ocean is becoming the top priority in view of the active exploration and development of the Arctic region and the need to keep track of the ecological state of the ocean and especially its coastal areas.
