For this trip participants need to be in Moscow July, 20.
We suggest a field trip (2-nights 1-day) to Yaroslavl city. Our destination point is a depository of Russian superdeep drilling cores (including the 5-km-deep drill core of the Puchezh-Katunki impact crater and the super-deep Kola borehole). In addition we plan to visit the adjacent museum where microscopes can be used to study thin sections of the best samples. Although Yaroslavl is a very nice old city and the capital of the Russian Gold ring, we do not plan extensive sightseeing. For those, who are interested in Russian history and architecture, but not in geology of impact craters, we do not recommend this trip. Instead, you can visit this city all alone.
We plan to depart from Moscow on late evening of July 20 and return back in the afternoon of July 22. Travel time by train is approximately 3 hours. We have booked rooms in Ring Premier Hotel in the center of Yaroslavl with a price of ~3 300-3 400 rubles (~$59/77) per night (http://ring-hotel-yaroslavl.ru). Preliminary estimate of the total price is ~$200-220. All prices will be confirmed only in 2018 and will depend on the number of people willing to participate. Because of the limited access to the depository, the total number of participants should not exceed 20. If you have any questions please contact to Natalia Artemeva, email@example.com.
