Abstract A review of the Russian (Soviet) reflection seismic and ground-based radio-echo sounding (RES) investigations in Central Antarctica is made in the paper. Special attention is given to the scientific works in the regions of Vostok Subglacial Lake (VSL), Pionerskoe Subglacial Lake (PSL) and traverse between Mirny and Vostok Stations. Methodological aspects of the reflection seismic works and results of the seismic and RES investigations are discussed. Data on the VSL area layers based on RES materials are presented in the paper. The relationships between subglacial lakes and the deep Earth's crust structure are discussed. Radio-echo time section and the ice sheet section are presented. The plans of the ground-based scientific works in Central Antarctica in the framework of IPY are discussed.
