SKAT will conduct hydrobiological research in the Far East
A group of eight people from the club SKAT – underwater activity Center of TSU is going on a two-week expedition to Karamzin Island and other islands of the Sea of Japan. Tomsk divers will explore the water area, flooded objects and caves in the depths of the sea. After the end of the expedition, they will make a report and release a film where they will tell in detail about the results of the trip.
This is the first expedition of the club SKAT since 2019. Due to quarantine and other reasons, it was not possible to go on expeditions. Now the club is gaining momentum: new people have joined the team and new plans have appeared. The main objectives of the current expedition are hydrobiological research. The Far East was chosen by the expedition leader Andrey Miller. According to him, there are many interesting places to explore there, and in the local NDL dive center he has a familiar dive master who knows the local water area well and will show sunken objects and caves.
The current expedition involves 8 people. Four of them are students, they have been trained in SKAT and now they are ready to pass the sea test. The other members of the group are experienced divers with many years of experience and experience diving to a depth of 40 meters. From Tomsk, the group leaves for Taiga, from there by train to Ussuriysk, where the group will be met and taken to the destination. They will live in a house on the coast, in the town Slavyanka, and they will get to the islands by boat. If the weather permits, they will dive every day, says Andrey.
