The Russian Arctic Ocean Hydrographic Expedition represented an effort by the Imperial Russian Navy to explore, survey, and chart the Northern Sea Route with a view to developing it as a commercial route. The expedition used two specially built icebreaking research vessels, Tamyr and Vaygach. They spent three years working west along the Arctic coast of Siberia, sounding, surveying, and pursuing scientific work as they went, and produced an impressive volume of scientific data.
