New station in Ny Ålesund

Ny Ålesund is becoming increasingly popular as a base for polar research. The latest newcomer from the far east, after China and Korea, is India, which opened a station in early 2008. Russia has already expressed interest and may be the next nation to follow. Italy, that has already a station in Ny Ålesund, plans to open a “climate tower” to conduct atmospheric research, which is expected to be operational in the summer of 2009.
