MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The Arctic Basin aims to provide for the first time a unique and updated insight into the work and achievements of the drifting stations established in the Antartic since 1937. ... I do strongly recommend it for any experienced colleague interested in Arctic Ocean science, and for anybody collaborating with Russian colleagues. It provides a valuable common ground for further discussions and future joint projects ... . It certainly also contributes to a better understanding between Russian scientists and their international partners." (Christian Haas, Polarforschung, Vol. 75 (1), 2005)
