ZOTTO infrastructure improved
August 29, 2011
After a joint German-Russian effort, work on the new isolation of the Siberian ZOTTO “bunker” was concluded on Monday 22 August 2011. About 1000 m3 of sand, that covers the shelter at the foot of our 300 m ZOTTO tower and protects it from the harsh Siberian meteorological conditions, had to be moved twice. With the new isolation, ZOTTO instruments are now safe from humidity and fungal attacks for many years to come.
