Today Vladivostok-based Far Eastern Federal University (FENU) opened the International School of Ice Ice Mechanics to 30 students and young scientists from Russia, China, Korea, India, Indonesia and Norway. They will study the basics of field development of oil and gas in the Arctic ice of Amur Bay Vladivostok.
Also they will explore the properties of ice and arrangements for its impact on the offshore oil and gas platforms. This research will help the young scientists in the future to become parties to large-scale projects for the development of the Arctic region.
Amur Bay is selected for the training of the future polar chance. This time of year can be found near Vladivostok, the main types of sea ice, which exist in the Arctic waters. That - and the white solid ice fields and forming ridges of gray-white ice, gray ice, and the young, reports TASS.
Having mastered the theory that young researchers will begin practical work with natural materials. The second part is dedicated to school experiments directly on sea ice, the study in the field of its features, structures, test strength, hardness and friability. The participants will be engaged in a more detailed analysis of them in university laboratories.
This year, the International Workshop Ice Mechanics will last until February 5.
