Ukrainian Antarctic Station at Marina Point on Galindez Island.

 Ukrainian Antarctic Station at Marina Point on Galindez Island. The Vernadsky Research Base.



Ukraine took over the operation of the base in February 1996,[2] which was sold by the UK for a symbolic one pound. The cost of disassembling the base with good environmental practices and standards would be too costly. The National Antarctic Scientific Center of Ukraine continues a programme of meteorology, upper atmospheric physics, geomagnetism, ozone, seismology, glaciology, ecology, biology and physiology research.[5]
