Geological Students to be tested in Arctic

August 11, 2016

Novosibirsk State university this year, together with the Russian Academy of Sciences will begin sending students of geological and geophysical faculty to practice in the Arctic. It provides matching grants, which had previously received NSU, he told journalists on Wednesday Director of the Institute of Petroleum Geology and Geophysics SB RAS Mikhail Epov. First specialists sent to "Arctic field" in the current year, according to TASS.

"We won a competitive grant to the so-called strategic academic unit - geological and geophysical studies in the Arctic. There's one of the main tasks is to ensure that students specializing in Arctic studies did not do it in the abstract, and went there and especially for myself understood, it is acceptable to them or not ", - said Mikhail Epov.

According to him, a specialist who has received training during this hands-on experience will be more competent and valuable to science. However, the criteria for the selection of students to the Arctic are quite strict - in addition to the interest in the study of the region, the student must have good training, confirmed as the high marks and participation in scientific work, as well as good health.

The number of the students who will practice in the Arctic is not defined, however, according to Deputy Director of the Russian Academy of Sciences Igor IPGG Eltcova, they will not be many because of geophysics, which prepares GGF NSU - "piece" experts. "Annually it produced about 15 undergraduate and seven graduate students. And not all of them specialize in the Arctic ", - he said.
