Vladimir Borisovich Proskuryakov graduated as a civil engineer from the Leningrad Institute of Railways Engineering in 1927. Until 1928 he was a chief hydrologist in Turksib, Central Asia and then joined the Central-Asia Institute of Water Economy. In 1932 he moved to Sredvolgostroy as a chief engineer for the Central Volga Development and from 1936 he headed the Leningrad Hydrothermal Laboratory of the All-Russian Scientific Research Institute of Hydraulic Engineering VNIIG. During the war he investigated problems of frozen swampy land and snow drift, major problems of the armies in the Soviet territory. He submitted a PhD thesis to the Leningrad State University in 1947 and was appointed there professor in 1957.

Proskuryakov directed VNIIG from 1946 to 1963. During this period, the Soviet science and research activities expanded significantly leading to successes such as the first space mission with Sputnik. VNIIG was the most important hydraulic laboratory of the time, with hundreds of collaborators working on a number of problems. Proskuryakov had early experience with ice problems that were by then experimentally analyzed. He contributed to the Soviet activities in hydraulic engineering thereby culminating in the 1965 Leningrad Congress of the IAHR. He was also involved in the foundation of the VNIIG branch institutes in Novosibirsk and Moscow. From 1963 Proskuryakov directed the department of hydraulic and ice researches at the Leningrad Hydro-Meteorological Institute. He was a Council Member of the International Association of Hydraulic Research IAHR and of other steering committees related to hydraulic research in the Soviet Union. His work was honored by medals from the Soviet State.
