TOMSK, Jul 16 – RIA Tomsk. Scientists from Russia, Canada, Norway and Great Britain discussed global climate change and adaptation mechanisms at Tomsk State University (TSU); the structure of the consortium, which will solve these global problems, was also presented at the meeting, the press service of the university reported on Friday.

It is specified that within the framework of U-NOVUS (the forum of young scientists takes place in Tomsk since July, 1 till September, 30 – Ed.) there was a round table "Global changes of the Earth: climate, ecology, quality of life". Its participants were leading scientists from Russia, Canada, Norway and the UK. During the meeting, participants discussed the development of mechanisms for adapting humans and ecosystems to climate change and its consequences.

"An idea emerged to create a consortium uniting scientific centers and specialized institutes that have a large scientific reserve in the study of Siberia and the Arctic – the territories most sensitive to climate change", – First Vice-Rector of TSU Victor Dyomin is quoted in the message.

The consortium "Global changes of the Earth: climate, ecology, quality of life" is formed even today: agreements with several academic institutions were signed at U-NOVUS, and its structure was presented at the round table. The consortium is open to new participants who are ready to contribute to the study of Siberia and the Arctic. The project is designed for 10 years, is added in the message.

Scientists want to create an integrated network of complex observations in the Arctic "land-shelf-basin" system of the Arctic Ocean and the carbon polygon on the Ob. They also plan to study melting of permafrost (in Russia it occupies 65% of the area), the effect of global warming on forests and to study watersheds of the Lena, Ob and Yenisey rivers that feed the Arctic seas, which influence the climate of the whole planet.

"The results of these studies will form the basis of mechanisms for adaptation to climate change and its effects. Creation of such approaches is necessary to ensure the quality of life of mankind, to solve the problem of ecological safety of the country", – the TSU report noted.
