1.5ºC annual average warming predicted in Russia over next 30 years

Vladimir Semyonov is Deputy Director of the Obukhov Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The Russian News Agency TASS reported from a recent press conference summarising the current climate atmospheric position based on the Institute’s science. The Institute is an IPCC contributor and collaborator: According to him, the warming will be… Read More 1.5ºC annual average warming predicted in Russia over next 30 years

Permafrost and cryogenic monitoring in the western Russian Arctic.

Permafrost is currently analysed by reviewing temperatures at different layers compared with air and ground surface temperatures, depth of freezing and thawing, as well as overall coverage including snow and vegetation. Mean annual air temperature (MAAT) and mean annual ground temperatures (MAGT) are a widely used source of analysis with the practical measurements being completed… Read More Permafrost and cryogenic monitoring in the western Russian Arctic.

Geo-engineering the business climate instead of the natural one can help start-ups

Researchers compared digital business models for renewable energy start-ups for solar and wind power. The market included digital technologies, customer orientation, delivery of value and revenue stream. They collected start-up data from the deal room database and the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). Technologies used included ‘deep tech’, artificial intelligence, blockchain, ‘deep learning’, machine learning,… Read More Geo-engineering the business climate instead of the natural one can help start-ups

Climate change impact on river basins in Ukraine 2020

The researchers used six models comparing precipitation and drought based on river levels using RCP 2.6 and RCP 8.5 scenarios. Their predictions show a decrease in water in most of the eight main river basins, particularly between 2040 – 2070. The greatest reductions by the end of the century are predicted for Pripyat, Southern bug… Read More Climate change impact on river basins in Ukraine 2020

Biting back at humans with climate change

A human disease called dirofilariasis caused by parasitic mosquitoes has been affected by the warmer climate in Russia,  expanding north and east, currently 58° N  (Kondrashin et al., 2022) in both European and Asian Russia. Researchers developed a map using data from the Russian Meteorological office between 1937 and 2016. The data shows long term average… Read More Biting back at humans with climate change
