Also other powerful tests conducted during this period had dramatic effects on the Arctic landscape, as noted in this report. The study is based on interpretation and analysis of satellite images combined with recent Russian information on the underground nuclear testing on Novaya Zemlya. The satellite images used cover a long time-span, from declassified US reconnaissance satellite photographs of the 1960s to IKONOS and Quick Bird commercial high resolution digital images taken only a few years ago. The study reveals further details on how the testing was conducted and what safety measures were employed.

The most recent underground test at the Novaya Zemlya site took place in 1990.
