Eduard Vashenyuk by the van with the neutron monitor 6-NM-64.
In 2004 the van with the neutron monitor has got an external plating
and a steep roof to shed snow
Since April 2005 the neutron monitor consists of two sections.
In December 2005 (in conditions of the polar night!) the third section was installed.
Now the neutron monitor in Barentsburg is a standard 18-NM-64 instrument.
