A territory of dialogue (08.06.2010)
"The Arctic is a territory of dialogue," said the legendary Russian explorer and scientist Arthur Chilingarov at the opening ceremony of the IPY Oslo Science Conference, and called for further research efforts throughout a Polar Decade.
Professor Chilingarov called for an International Polar Decade to follow the success of the International Polar Year as he addressed more than 2000 fellow scientists at the official opening of the largest gathering of polar scientists ever to take place.
The director of Voeikov Main Geophysical Observatory in St. Petersburg, Dr Vladimr Kattsov, will hold the morning lecture today. He is replacing Alexander Frolov.
The observatory is part of Russian Federal Service for Hydrometeorology (Roshydromet).
Dr. Kattsov is a doctor of science. His expertise is in global climate 3D modelling, high-latitude climate dynamics and model evaluation.
