In connection with plans to increase volume of cargo transportation via the Northern sea route (NSR), you must provide the court with timely information about the state of the ice. Currently, the Arctic region has only 41 ice station. The overall density of the observation network is insufficient.

In Roshydromet told about the situation with the scientific center on Svalbard
