These studies allowed the tectonic zoning of an area to be performed, as well as the identification of the structural elements of different ranks. Within the studied area, such large positive first-order structures as the Shirshov and Dezhnev hemibars, Voronin Rise, and Nobile Structural Terrace were distinguished. As well, the quality of seismic materials allowed us to confidently determine the fault systems and to map them, as well as to understand the ways in which they were formed. © Allerton Press, Inc., 2012.

New seismic research was carried out by JSC Marine Arctic Geological Expedition in 2006-2008, providing the first integrated geophysical grid (20 × 30 km). The main purpose was to study the geological structure of the sedimentary cover of the north Barents shelf and investigate the structural-tectonic plan at different stratigraphic levels. The geological results yielded new information on the tectonic structure, depositional environments, palaeobasin geometry, bathymetry and regional history of geological development. The geological interpretation of the Lower Palaeozoic part of the section provided the most interesting results. © 2011 The Geological Society of London.
