The history of Russian oceanographic expeditionary research is very rich and full of numerousglobal-scale discoveries of great scientific importance. However, it is a very difficult task tointroduce a comprehensive review of multidisciplinary marine investigations, which date backover 300 years. This publication is an endeavor to present the most important results of seavoyages and ocean expeditions performed by Russian seamen from the late 17th century up tothe present. It is intended to familiarize the international oceanographic scientific communitiesas well as anyone interested in historical Russian marine exploration and the current state ofexpeditionary research. In particular, this monograph may be particularly useful for students andofficers in navigation schools as more general information about Russia’s marine expeditionaryresearch is presented. This monograph presents information on the most famous expeditions andthe results from these investigations, the national and international projects (programs) involvingRussia, and the organizations contributing to research of the world oceans.
