Yamal funnel is growing by leaps and bounds. This conclusion was made by Russian scientists who visited the site of the crater formation. During the expedition, the researchers visited a dozen sites. They saw the old crater and found new ones. The tour was accompanied by scientists, our correspondent - Ilya Deryushev.

Briefed on safety and immediately take off. Time for scientists weight in gold. The day should have time to examine a dozen objects. start perhaps with the most interesting. Yamal huge crater in all its glory.
Of course, many have seen the Yamal funnel on TV, on Internet sites, but when you see this phenomenon with my own eyes, it is simply mesmerizing.

The most famous crater on the Yamal Peninsula has become even greater. About fifty meters deep. This means that easily fit inside a 25-storey building. The base of the crater is falling apart right before our eyes.

Two-thirds of the space takes melt and rain water. Scientists have taken tests. At the bottom of the funnel is lowered special sensors. We need to find out how it is stable. After the results became clear, the object is unpredictable. Descend deeper into the crater - it is dangerous.

VLADIMIR PUSHKAREV - DIRECTOR Russian Centre for the Arctic: "By and large, it would be very extreme. First, the collapse is coming, and in addition to the collapse of slides thawed clay. "

This expedition - Review. The main goal - to visit as much as possible sites. Among them - the new crater and flooded craters have appeared hundreds of years ago. All the way accompanied by an international team of scientists journalists. The correspondent of the Japanese newspaper "Asahi" by what he saw shocked.

Teruhiko NOSE - correspondent of the newspaper "Asahi Shimbun" in Tokyo: "I am very surprised at the size, very big! And the sound when a glacier melts, that this sound amazes me. "

For this journey, scientists have prepared thoroughly before the flight studied satellite images of the territory of the Yamal Peninsula. Therefore, most of the objects we find without difficulty. But there are also some exclusives. Our crew managed to shoot an amazing natural phenomenon. The so-called mounds of swelling - the future of the funnel. Under the pressure of the compressed gas in the soil is literally blown.

BASIL Epiphany - Deputy Director, Institute of Oil and Gas Academy of Sciences: "There were even surprised that not so much the pressure required. That is, in principle, with some 12 atmospheres quite a hill to explode. "

Landed near the mounds of swelling is not allowed. Life threatening. No one knows when this object may explode. But we visited the newly discovered crater. In form it is a bit like a bear paw. In the middle of a large crater and a few small indentations around. Scientists launch sounder.

IGOR Epiphany - Specialists of the Institute of Oil and Gas Academy of Sciences: "We are on-line see the bottom relief, as it shows the water temperature. Now the temperature - 9 degrees, depth - about three and a half meters. "

It is already clear that this crater is different from the most famous Yamal funnel, and shape, and depth. Scientists had yet to figure out the mechanism of its occurrence. It remains a mystery, and the so-called underwater crater. They were found on one of the Yamal ozёr.enie climate.
