Prof. Andrey G. Kostianoy is a Chief Scientist at the P.P. Shirshov Institute of Oceanology, Russian Academy of Sciences, in Moscow, Russia. He is a specialist in physical oceanography.

Prof. Dr. Aleksandr Semenov is a marine biologist, explorer and underwater photographer, head of the divers' team at Moscow State University's White sea biological station. He is used to diving in unfavourable and often harsh conditions where he successfully conducts complex research projects. His own goal is to study underwater life through camera lenses and to boost people's interest in marine biology, sharing all his finding on social media and in real life through public lectures, exhibitions and media events. He has the amazing opportunity to see beauty in the darkness underwater, and this led him to multiple collaborations with the National Geographic, Discovery Channel, the BBC, Nature, Smithsonian and many more.

Media reviews

"The Eastern Arctic Seas Encyclopedia is an alphabetically arranged, dictionary-style work covering the geographic area of the Laptev Sea, East Siberian Sea, and Chukchi Sea. [...] The strength of this book is its focus on Russian areas, people, and topics, and it would make an excellent addition to library collections focused on Russia or the East. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Undergraduates through professionals/practitioners; general readers."
– B. Galbraith, Choice, Vol. 54 (10), June, 2017

"The coverage is generally very comprehensive. [...] The book is well designed and produced and is notable for a large number of illustrations, many in colour. [...] There is a very large amount of information in this remarkably compact book, much of which is on topics either new to many Western readers or otherwise not readily accessible. It is presented in an elegant single volume with useful and relevant illustrations."
– Stuart James, Area Studies, Vol. 31 (4), 2017
