One major task of the Expedition was to relay meteorological information to Soviet whaling ships in the southern latitudes.
This expedition was the first Soviet expedition to use aqua-lungs in biological exploration. Explorations using this technology were made from December to March in the Antarctic summer of 1966/7. The three months of work resulted in a large collection of animals which were presented to the Academy of Sciences of the USSR in Leningrad.
