Rosneft Publishes Atlas “Russian Arctic. Space, Time, Resources”

03 October 2019

Rosneft together with Innopraktika, a non-governmental development institute, has published a unique atlas “Russian Arctic. Space, Time, Resources”. The atlas consists of 15 topical sections and is a collection of valuable scientific data on the physical geography, ecology, research history, and economic potential of the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation. This book is a result of the longstanding work of more than 140 authors along with mapmakers and illustrators.

Supreme attention is paid to the environment and resources in the Arctic, but also the atlas covers history, culture, ethnography, economy, social sphere, infrastructure, and polar regions’ development perspectives. The book gives insight into the Arctic, its significance for the state growth in the past, the present, and especially the future comprehensively.

Reaching the balance between the development of the Arctic including the Rosneft Oil Company offshore projects implementation and polar ecosystem natural diversity preservation is impossible without fundamental knowledge and studying the features of the region. Rosneft provides wide research work in the Arctic: the Company has organised more than 20 large-scale expeditions, which have made an invaluable contribution in studying this unique region.

Note for Editors:

Rosneft and Innopraktika, a non-governmental development institute, published “Kara Sea”, “Laptev Sea” and “Marine Mammals of the Russian Arctic and the Far East” ecological atlases as a part of the “Russian Arctic Sea Atlases” series. The series provides up-to-date knowledge in physical geography, oceanology, hydrometeorology, ecology, and marine mammals’ dispersal based on the fund data and the researching results of Rosneft Oil Company in 2012-2016 in the Arctic. The Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) system has been adapted for the marine bank typification sections.
