Talk:Drifting ice station

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


I've just added a link to the Google Earth file into the article, with trajectories of the drift of "NP-2" to "NP-34". I believe, it can help to create a map. However, the best would be to obtain a file with point coordinates of each drift, from somewhere. At the AARI's website it seems to be available only for the latest stations.

Drift station[edit]

I started the article drift station before this article was created and they should probably be merged.--Paraphelion (talk) 23:16, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

Agreed. Or, this article should be renamed and drifting ice station redirect to drift station. Ylee (talk) 18:22, 10 February 2015 (UTC)
There's a redirect to this page from Soviet and Russian manned drifting ice stations, which is a much more appropriate name. As it is, this article ignores other country's drifting stations. We should cover them, but whether this article should stay Russian-only (and be renamed) or expanded for internationalisation is another question. Andy Dingley (talk) 19:06, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

End point of July 2008[edit]

Is the latest one still drifting? Currently says "between the Earth Franz Josef and the island of Spitsbergen". I think that is a poor Russian translation of Franz Josef Land. Ah, I see, it was abandoned. See refs in the article and this news story. Carcharoth (talk) 06:10, 6 October 2008 (UTC)
