Novolazarevskaia

Novolazarevskaia

 

a Soviet antarctic scientific station in Queen Maud Land, 80 km from the coast of the Lazarev Sea in eastern Antarctica. Novolazarevskaia was opened in early 1961, replacing the Lazarev station that had previously existed in the area. It is situated on the ice-free surface of the Schirmaher Oasis (70°46′ S lat. and 11° 50′ E long.). The station is supplied by expeditionary ships and by means of sleighs and tracked vehicles. The station is manned by 12 to 15 persons, who are replaced annually. Aerometeorological, geophysical, and glaciological observations are conducted, as well as medical research. Novolazarevskaia is a base for field studies in the adjacent parts of Queen Maud Land.
