  Willem Barents - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Barents' vessel, after rounding the north of Novaya Zemlya, was trapped in the ice and the crew was compelled to winter on Novaya Zemlya, cannibalising their ship's superstructure and spare timber to build a lodge.
Since the ship was not released by the ice early in 1597, Barents party left her in two open boats on June 13, 1597 and most of the crew escaped.
In 1871 the house in which Barents and his crew wintered was discovered undisturbed, with many relics, which are preserved at The Hague, and in 1875 part of his original journal was found.

The number of respondents knowing nothing about the Barents cooperation - about 55% (Question 4) is comparative to a number of indifferent respondents (Question 5): 20% consider that Barents projects do not influence their life and 40% do not have any personal point of view which totally give a number of 60%.

 AW2002 Abstract: Lubinski
This connection to the North Atlantic is demonstrated by periodic covariations between the NAO and a number of environmental measures in both the northern and southern Barents Sea (i.e., glacier mass balance, winter temperature, winter precipitation, sea surface temperature; e.g., Zeeberg, 2001).
Furthermore, the NE Barents Sea is strongly connected to the Arctic Ocean and the Russian mainland coast through ocean currents, including those that carry driftwood from rivers ranging from the Dvina (White Sea) to the Lena (Laptev Sea).
Foraminiferal stable isotopes show that Atlantic water transiting the Barents Sea probably entered the Franz Victoria Trough from the south during the early Holocene, a path that is blocked today by a shallow sill.
