Temporary description

Expedition research vessel "Vityaz" in the Pacific Ocean to study the Earth's mantle: seeing the ship in the port of Vladivostok, the vessel "Vityaz" in the ocean. The commander GB Udintsev told members of the expedition on upcoming research. Members of the expedition, among them foreign scientists, while conducting research with the help of sonar, seysmoprofilografa. Explosion works for the reflected waves. Meeting of scientists in the ocean research vessel "Vityaz" with the American scientific vessel "Maxi". Negotiations chiefs of the two expeditions. Meeting of Soviet and American scientists. Conducting joint studies in the ocean. Crossing vessel "Vityaz" of the equator. Feast on the ship. Photographing members of the expedition of the ocean floor with deep fotoustanovki. The study of rocks, raised from the bottom. Carrying out geological studies on the island "Norfolk", on the island "Philip", on the shores of New Zealand, on the island of Lord Howe Island. Out of a research vessel "Akademik Kurchatov" in the sea for research in the Atlantic Ocean. "Akademik Kurchatov" off the coast of Iceland. Members of the expedition carried out measurements of Earth's magnetic field in the ocean, explore the rock, excavated from the bottom of the ocean, as well as conducting research on the Icelandic rift zone, are planted on the island of Jan Mayen.
