[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
Picture taken at the inside of Hornsundfiord (1980), Svalbard archipelago, Norway.
In the Hornsund is the Polish Polar Station, Hornsund (Polish: Polska Stacja Polarna, Hornsund) is at Isbjørnhamna in Hornsund fjord, on West Spitsbergen island in the Norwegian Svalbard archipelago, operated since 1957.
The station was erected in July 1957 by the Polish Academy of Sciences Expedition within the framework of the International Geophysical Year. The expedition was led by Stanislaw Siedlecki, geologist, explorer and climber, a veteran of Polish Arctic expeditions in the 1930s (including the first traverse of West Spitsbergen island). A reconnaissance group searching the area for the future station site had been working in Hornsund in the previous summer, and selected the flat marine terrace in Isbjørnhamna three summer months in 1957. The station was modernized in 1978, in order to resume a year round activity. Since then, the Institute of Geophysics, Polish Academy of Sciences has been responsible for organising year-round and seasonal research expeditions to the station.
