February 2, 2021. At the Samoilovsky Island research station in the Lena River delta, work continues on the construction of a technical pavilion for the northernmost magnetic observatory in Russia - a joint project of GC RAS and the Trofimuk Institute of Petroleum Geology and Geophysics, SB RAS.

The need to create a magnetic observatory in northern latitudes is explained by the proximity to the north magnetic pole, which has been actively moving towards Siberia in recent years. Such a world-class full-scale magnetic observatory will make a significant contribution to the study of global processes of changes in the Earth's magnetic field.
