What is the Lomonosov Ridge?
The Lomonosov Ridge is a 1,800 km long ridge, which divides the Arctic Ocean into two major basins: the Eurasia Basin and the Amerasia Basin. The latter is more than 4,000 meters deep, whereas its Eurasian counterpart measures 3,400 meters. The ridge itself rises 1,800 - 3,400 meters from the basin floor.
Exploratory scope 2
We now dig into the scientific controversy through the specific case of the Lomonosov Ridge in order to find out how the Lomonosov Ridge becomes visible to the eye of scientists and the UN commission through a range of technical instruments. We focus on the importance of the manner in which data is constructed (validity) as well as the design of the legal territorial claims from Russia, Denmark and Canada (legitimacy).
