International geocryological field course for students and young scientists

The Industrial University of Tyumen invites students and young scientists to take part in the International geocryological field practice in the Trans-Baikal Territory, in the Kodar Range area. The aim of the field practice is to study the phenomena generated by the cold in mountain regions with a low-temperature cryolithozone. The event will be held from the end of July to the beginning of August 2018. Working languages are Russian and English.

The first five days of the expedition will be held in the natural-rehabilitation complex "Gnezdo", a place in a picturesque area near Tyumen on the Pyshma River bank. The next stage of the expedition will take place on the famous deep-water Lake Baikal shore. The time spent on the lake will be combined with seminars and first practical exercises.

The final point of the geocryological field practice will become the village of New Chara. Chara River cliffs are perfect outcrops of polygonal veins, they are always well expressed thanks to constant river washover. Ancient glaciers deposits and accompanying phenomena of cryolithozone, including well-pronounced various types of ice can be seen directly behind the outcrops.
