Moscow as a world city combines territories with various functional content. At the same time, the complexity of the morphological structure of the capital is supplemented by the high dynamism of the socio-economic processes taking place in it. In this context, an important task is to assess the role of large infrastructure projects, intensifying t...
Conference Paper

The accumulative fan was formed at the mouth of a well-developed system of erosive cuts in the lower Serteyka River valley in western Russia. The length of the fan reaches 70 m, and its thickness is up to 2 m. The erosive cuts (gullies) were formed on the steep and short slopes of the tunnel valley (transformed later into the river valley) and diss...

This paper discusses the development of a specialized web GIS (geoportal) dedicated to the analysis of changes in climate conditions and hydrological regime in the North-West of Russia. One of the main goals of geoportal is to provide a tool to answer simple questions about climate for wide range of users. For example, how has the climate and hydro...

Streamflow prediction is a vital public service that helps to establish flash-flood early warning systems or assess the impact of projected climate change on water management. However, the availability of streamflow observations limits the utilization of the state-of-the-art streamflow prediction techniques to the basins where hydrometric gauging s...

In recent decades there has been a trend towards an increase in the number of dangerous hydrological events, especially floods. In order to protect citizens and solve economic problems, it is important to develop and actively introduce into operational practice methods of hydrological forecasting, as well as to build more modern and convenient inte...

Emiliania huxleyi algae are known to enhance CO2 partial pressure in their ambient water, (pCO2)w. Thus, over such bloom areas, the atmospheric column-averaged dry air mole fraction of carbon dioxide (XCO2) is likely to increase, which has not been yet quantified on basin scales. Here we report on an Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO-2) satellite st...

Producing very extensive blooms in the world's oceans in both hemispheres, a coccolithophore E. huxleyi is capable of affecting both the marine ecology and carbon fluxes at the atmosphere-ocean interface. At the same time, it is subject to the impact of multiple co-acting environmental forcings, which determine the spatio-temporal dynamics of E. hu...

A 19-year (1998-2016) continuous dataset is presented of coccolithophore Emiliania huxleyi distributions and activity, i.e. the release of CaCO 3 in water and the decrease of uptake of dissolved CO 2 by Emiliania huxleyi cells (e.g. Kondrik et al., 2018a), in Arctic and sub-Arctic seas. The dataset is based on optical remote-sensing data (mostly OC...

The subject of the planned research is the reconstruction of palaeoenvironmental conditions in the Western Dvina Lakeland, a part of the East European (Russian) Plain, as a basis for the study on human-environment relationships in the last 13,000 years. The multi-proxy analysis are performed based on organic deposits core collected from the small peat bog in Serteya. This geoarchive allow for detailed reconstructions of the natural history, including climate, vegetation hydrological changes. The proposed research is focused on broadening knowledge on the palaeoenvironmental evolution and reconstructing environmental conditions accompanying the human occupation, and the human-environment relationships in the Late Vistulian and the Holocene. Due to the long period of the dominance of subsistence strategy in the territory (at least up to 4000 BP), our results will allow for detailed study: 1/ on natural palaeoenvironmental evolution, 2/ human-environment relationships in the period of hunter-gatherer economy dominance. The intense archaeological research is realised for of the Serteya area resulted in documentation of over 60 archaeological sites, mostly seasonal and permanent settlements of hunter-gatherer groups from the Stone Age. The earliest potsherds are dated there as early as to 7th-6th mill. BC. The Early Neolithic migration could be connected with palaeoenvironmental changes during the 8.2 ky BP cooling event. Very famous are well preserved remains of Neolithic pile-dwelling settlements from 3rd mill. BC found within lacustrine deposits. Palaeoenvironmental results of the proposed project will be a contribute to the discussion on vegetation history of the Late Weichselian and Holocene. Precise identification of the time of occupation of the study area and description of the introduced forms of management and changes in ecosystems resulting from human activity will be an important aim. It will be also significant to determine the palaeoclimatic and palaeohydrological conditions in East European Plain. The Serteya peat bog site lies in the contact zone between the transitional and continental climate, which makes it sensitive to changes in the paleoclimatic regime, hence it is perfect to trace detailed hydrological changes in NE Europe. The climatic zones are also reflected by the boundary area of boreal vegetation and temperate deciduous forests crossing the area. Therefore, it is possible to reconstruct, based on the results of paleoecological research, changes in the range of plant formations on East European Plain. The proposed project will be based on multidisciplinary multi-proxy studies of the 13.5 m organic deposits core from the central part of the Serteya peat bog, with the mean rate of accumulation estimated to ca. 1 m for 1 thousand year.
