To install it, scientists drilled the well to a depth of four meters and placed inside the sensor, the data logger activity is on the surface.
"Instrument scientists to monitor, study and predict possible natural disasters in the area of industrial development. The sensors will register oscillations of the earth's surface and transmit information in YEC "Arctic" and a Single geophysical service RAS for further processing and interpretations", — said the representative of the Department.
The specialists have also installed a residential unit for arranging research hospital. There will be monitoring of terrestrial ecosystems of the Yamal tundra.
It is planned that a similar seismic sensors will appear on the Bovanenkovskoye field and in the village of Hirasawa.
