The international scientific and practical conference «Polar geophysics of Yamal» was opened in Salekhard on the 14th of April.
The conference is organized by the Institute of Earth magnetism, ionosphere and radiowaves propagation named after Nikolay Pushkov and the geophysical center of the RAS, the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute and the Institute of applied geophysics n.a. Fyodorov at support of the government of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug.
As it is declared by the director of the department of international and external economic relations of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug Alexander Mazharov on the opening of the conference, in conditions, when high-technological production is advanced actively to the Far North, use of modern information systems and databases in development of oil and gas fields, electromagnetic sounding in high latitudes, use of technologies of satellite communication are important. It is pleasant that scientists and industrialists of the whole world understand importance of this issue.
More than 50 leading scientists of Russia, Ukraine, the USA, Denmark, Hungary and Taiwan are participating in the conference.
