Airfield, Severomorsk naval base, Kola Peninsula, Russia. North is at top. Ikonos satellite image showing the airfield in Severomorsk, the home of Russia's northern fleet. Warmed by the Gulf Stream, the waters around Severomorsk stay unfrozen all year round. This allows for a swift response to crises and enables the fleet to train year round. Severomorsk is also distinguished in maintaining the only professional naval folk dancing and singing ensemble above the Arctic Circle. Photographed on 14 August 2002.
