Abstract : A seismically active belt which extends close to the sub-oceanic Lomonosov Range of the Arctic Ocean basin was investigated. Research was conducted from research station North Pole 3, located on an ice field. At three locations the Cores obtained had a content of volcanic glass. The three points where volcanic glass was discovered lie on a single straight line which may indicate a deep fault in the terrestrial crust, passing almost over the North Pole.
