Shores of Alexander I Island are seen from the deck of the Russian oceanographic research vessel Admiral Vladimirsky during an expedition to the shores of Antarctica. In December of 2019 the research vessel Admiral Vladimirsky went on a round-the-world expedition to the shores of Antarctica, dedicated to the 200th anniversary of the continent’s opening by Russian naval sailors on the Vostok and Mirny sloops under the command of Thaddeus Bellingshausen and Mikhail Lazarev, as well as to 250th birth anniversary of Admiral Ivan Kruzenshtern. The aim of the expedition is to conduct complex oceanographic research in the Antarctic region and along the route, determining the location of the island of Peter the Great and studying the parameters of the earth's magnetic field in order to clarify the position of the South Magnetic Pole.
