Russian Polar explorers have established that there is a of volcanoes at the bottom of the deep-water area of the Arctic Ocean. This was learned from stu-dies of undersea rocks.

This chain begins in the Atlantic Ocean, crosses Iceland (Исландия) and can be traced far to the north, along the center line of the Atlantic-Arctic deep-water area of the Arctic Ocean.

The chain of undersea volcanoes separates the Norwegian Sea from the Sea of Greenland, just as the central underwater Atlantic chain cuts the ocean to the south of Iceland in two.

The presence of the Arctic chain of volcanoes was forecast (предсказано) on the basis (база, основа) of geophysical data.

In the opinion of scientists, the volcanoes are now sleeping in the Arctic, but they may become active at any time.

The volcano chain in the Arctic Ocean has been set down for the first time almost completely on the charts prepared at the institute.
