On October 15, 2021 during a joint expedition of the Geophysical Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences (GC RAS), the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) and the Russian Center for Arctic Development (Salekhard) on the territory of the Snezhinka International Arctic Station researchers carried out a magnetic-gradientometric survey.

The survey took place in the northern part of the Ural region of the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous area of Russia, not far from the village Kharp. The purpose of the survey was to study the nature of the distribution of the Earth’s magnetic field anomalies and determine the areas suitable for placing the pavilions of the planned geomagnetic observatory.

As a result of measurements, an area was found that was free from man-made magnetic interference and had a suitable distribution of the natural magnetic field. Based on the results of GNSS observations, the coordinates of the places for laying the instrument pedestals, which will be located in the pavilions, were determined.

For more details, see the article in the Bulletin of ONZ RAS.
