Restoration of the Valaam depth gauge

The project is carried out since 1998 by the Commission on geodynamics and levels of Ladoga and Onega Lakes, which founded within the framework of the "Baltika" national workgroup at the St. Petersburg scientific centre of the Russian Academy of Sciences, in collaboration with the Russian Geographic Society.

The main aim of the project is restoration and adjustment of the series of regular level-gauging observations. This series, started in 1859, is the longest one at Lake Ladoga.

The most important task of the project is the development of the federal programme of the restoration of the Valaam rock depth gauge, a unique device with no analogues in the world.
