This year students of the chair of physics of the Earth at the Physics Faculty of Moscow State University, currently undergoing training in Kamchatka, under the guidance of D.V. Chebrova (Director of the Kamchatka Branch of GS RAS), A.Yu. Marchenkov (Associate Professor of the chair of physics of the Earth), A.N. Tselebrovsky (researcher at the chair of physics of the Earth) also visited the field school. The students installed the equipment to register the seismic signal.

From year to year the Mutnovsky volcanological school allows participants to expand their knowledge in the field of volcanology, learn to work with the necessary equipment, improve field research skills, and also get acquainted with the work of foreign colleagues.
