Abstract: The paper presents maps and a text covering the contents and status of research in the unique Arctic region throughout two stages: the stage of the Arctic lands development by the Soviet Union (1950 – 1991) and the stage of the Russian Arctic development from 1991 to the present day.
The texts to the maps show that studying the Arctic basin has always been aimed at deepening the geographical knowledge about the region’s nature, economy and ecology, including improving transport links. The organization and development of the Arctic region research are discussed within a framework of the country’s economic and political situation. The article features its most important scientific results.
The maps cover the whole territory of the Russian Arctic, and contain information about the polar stations and their research profile, air, and sea expeditions and “Severny Polyus” ("North Pole") drifting stations, the Northern Sea Route with the standard routes characteristics and the area of all the navigation routes.
Map scales are: 1:25000000 and 1:16000000. A larger scale – 1:16000000 shows in more detail the ecological-biological centers and centers for integrated research – "Mys Baranova" (“Cape Baranov”) Ice base and the Russian research center in the Svalbard archipelago. Drifting stations, namely, the drift routes of each of the stations, the drift beginning and end, are depicted to same scale in more detail. Drifting stations are shown by specific inset maps.
The paper is illustrated with map and legend fragments, the report gives the maps in full.
