Zubov served as director of the scientific unit of the first Soviet high-latitude expedition on the icebreaker Sadko. He was one of the first to introduce and work on the problem of ice forecasts in the Arctic Seas. He laid the foundations for theories of the vertical circulation of waters and the origin of a frigid intermediate stratum in the sea. He developed a method for computing the condensing of water upon mixing and formulated the law of the drift of ice along isobars. He was awarded two orders, as well as a number of medals. A bay in Antarctica has been named for him, as have two ships, the â€śNikolai Zubovâ€ť and the â€śProfessor Zubovâ€ť.
