It is shown that the Terrain Ruggedness Index, calculated on the digital elevation model, predetermines the chemical composition of groundwater. The high ruggedness of the relief, the small stratum of the overlying bedrocks of Quaternary deposits, the absence of water barriers contribute to the desalination of groundwater due to the penetration of...

On the basis of digital simulation (copyright methods) calculations in heritance the structures of crystalline basement in the modern relief and geomorphometric settings of tectonic nodes. Based on the results of the calculations, the authors concluded that the manifestations of kimberlitic magmatism and promising areas for oil looking match with t...

Pine grows in a variety of environmental conditions which form several of technical properties of wood. The purpose of this study is an analysis of the morphology and the structure (i.e., the annual ring width, the latewood content, the tracheid wall thickness of the early- and latewood) of pine wood growing in areas with different relief and soil...

It is believed that exogenous processes take place slowly and are poorly reflected in relief forms in flat forest areas. However, the situation radically changes when the integrity of the vegetation cover is violated, which is inevitable with modern methods of economic development of the northern territories. In the paper, the authors estimated the...

Information on the shape of the Earth's surface is in demand when solving many geoecological problems and is traditionally represented in the form of maps (contour lines, isohypses, isobaths, etc.). At present, the main way to represent the shape of the earth's surface is the digital elevation model (DEM). With the development of computer and aeros...

The present study examines the macrostructure and density of larch wood and possible influences on the productivity of larch stands. The studies were conducted in the middle and sub-tundra taiga in the Arkhangelsk region. The selected trees were of the same age and diameter at breast height. In all sample plots the average annual ring width varied...

This paper considers the problems of the potential development of erosion processes in the natural landscapes of northern taiga in the Russian plain. It is considered that in forest ecosystems, erosion processes are slow and are weakly reflected in the terrain. However, the situation changes radically if the vegetation cover integrity is violated,...

Results of snow cover research in the conditions of the Arctic hydrothermal stow Pymvashor, received with application of snow shootings and aerial photography from the unmanned aerial vehicles are presented. Formation of snow cover in this stow depends on wind carrying over, snow redistribution on landscape elements, intensity and interannual varia...

Within the mainland of northern Europe active hydrothermal outputs are known only in the Polar Urals (East part of Bolshezemelskaya tundra). To study of the thermal ecosystem Pymvashor used satellite images obtained from satellites Terra (EOS AM-1) with a radiometer ASTER, summer aerial photographs from a helicopter Mi-8 and winter with an unmanned...

On the territory of the Arkhangelsk region, many factors of negative impact on human health have been established. One of them was quality of consumed drinking water. In the water sources used for centralized water supply of some cities and district centers of the region, stable strontium is widely spread. Being a biologically active element, stron...
