Arctic - Arctic Ocean & Siberia - Colin Monteath

In 1990, Colin Monteath joined a Soviet nuclear powered icebreaker Sovetsky Soyuz that made the first complete surface vessel crossing of the Arctic Ocean via the Geographic North Pole (4th surface vessel to the North Pole) - from Murmansk to the Bering Sea. Franz Josef Land and Wrangel Island were visited en route where walrus, polar bear, arctic fox and many species of Arctic seabirds were observed. The next voyage came through the famed NE Passage from Providenya back to Murmansk along the Siberia coast. Flying inland by helicopter, summer camps of Chukchi reindeer herders were visited. Three mammoth tusks were discovered half buried in the permafrost.
