Scientific investigations were focused on the following topics:
A. Permafrost soils and ecosystems (• Chapter 3: Microbiological processes, trace gas fluxes and hydrobiology in permafrost ecosystems of the Lena Delta)
B. Periglacial landscape dynamics (• Chapter 4: Studies of periglacial landscape dynamics and surface characteristics studies in the western Lena Delta)
C. Ground ice as climate archive (• Chapter 5: Holocene ice wedges of the 1st Lena terrace)
D. Modern delta hydrology (• Chapter 6: Report of the hydrological work in the Lena River Delta in August 2005)
