Yugra State University takes part in a new global network for climate research

In late April researchers from the Department of Physics of University of Helsinki Dr. Ivan Mammarella and M.Sc. Pavel Alekseychik visited Yugra State University (YSU), Khanty-Mansiysk. They spent a few days at the International field station “Mukhrino” collecting and processing data using the eddy covariance method.

This method allows to acquire more reliable estimates for gas exchange (CO2 and water vapor) between the ecosystem and the atmosphere. In future this makes it possible to forecast climate change in a particular region. It is worth noticing that there are only few operating eddy covariance facilities in Russia. Continue reading

Yugra State University may become a platform for meteorology research of the Western Siberia


The delegation of meteorology researchers from University of Helsinki have visited Yugra State University for the second time during this year. Early in April they installed Eddy Covariance system (micrometeorological method) at the premises of Mukhrino Field Station. During the stay the scientists organized a school for young researchers dedicated to data processing methods acquired by the aforementioned method.

Finnish colleagues are interested in cooperation with Yugra State University as there are only few Eddy Covariance facilities in Russia which allow to measure carbon dioxide flows and calculate another data such as wind speed and direction, at large distances. Continue reading
