    2019 IASC Medal Lecture - Topic: Understanding, Modeling and Predicting Arctic Climate & Sea Ice

    Dear friends and esteemed colleagues!

    I invite you to the 21st Arctic Science Summit Week to be hosted in Arkhangelsk on May 22 – 30, 2019. In the scientific world, such a large- scale event is held in Russia for the second time, and for the first time the Arkhangelsk region – one of the Russian Federation Arctic regions – was chosen as its venue. Arkhangelsk city is the largest scientific, industrial and cultural center of the Arctic zone, the pride of the Russian North.

    Founded in 1584, Arkhangelsk has always been inextricably linked to development of the Arctic mainland and the Northern Sea Route. Initiated by Tsar-Reformer Peter I, Arkhangelsk became the first sea port in Russia and cradle of the Russian Fleet. More than 200 expeditions went from its berths to explore the Northern latitudes.

    The first Russian academician Mikhail Lomonosov, who glorified his small Motherland and Russian science all over the world, was born here, in the Kholmogory land. Nowadays, the Northern (Arctic) Federal University named after M. V. Lomonosov in Arkhangelsk has a high status of one of the largest Russian scientific-educational centers associated with Arctic study and development, as well as high professional training.

    The talented, hospitable and kind-hearted people who live in our region are faithful to traditions and love their harsh Northern land. Visit our place once, and you’ll wish to return here again and again.

    For the Arctic Science Summit Week participants there’s prepared not only an interesting scientific program, but also a chance to visit the city and regional most beautiful cultural-historical places. We guarantee an indelible experience of tasting the unique Pomor cuisine!

    Welcome to the Russian North!

    Governor of Arkhangelsk region Igor Orlov
