A pilot project to create a network of carbon landfills in the Russian Federation is being implemented as part of the national action plan to adapt to modern climate change and its consequences, ensure environmental safety and improve the state of the environment. The main goal of the project is to create a regional network of observations of greenhouse gas fluxes on the territory of the Russian Federation in order to obtain reliable information on the integral values ​​and scales of temporal and spatial variability of absorption and emission of key greenhouse gases by terrestrial (forests, forest-steppe, steppe, swamps, agricultural lands) and marine ecosystems, including areas with permafrost, as well as obtaining data on the sensitivity of flows to changes in environmental conditions. Research will be carried out using an integrated approach, including ground-based measurements (balance, pulsation, chamber), remote sensing, mathematical modeling, providing a complete picture of the structure of the carbon balance and greenhouse gas fluxes. The main tasks of carbon polygons are:

  1. Monitoring observations of the emission and absorption of greenhouse gases in natural ecosystems by means of ground and remote measurement methods.
  2. Estimation of spatial and temporal variability of emission and absorption of greenhouse gases in representative natural landscapes, as well as determination of integral values ​​of fluxes for different territories for certain time intervals (day, month, year).
  3. Development of technological solutions to control the emission of greenhouse gases absorption by natural ecosystems, aimed at reducing their emission and increasing their absorption from the atmosphere.
  4. Development and adaptation of technologies for remote monitoring of the structure and condition of vegetation and soil cover, emission and absorption of greenhouse gases using ground-based measurement data and mathematical modeling methods.
  5. Training of highly qualified personnel in the field of methods of environmental control and monitoring of greenhouse gas flows, promising technologies for the low-carbon industry, agriculture and municipal economy.

Carbon polygons for monitoring greenhouse gas fluxes are planned to be evenly distributed in the most representative natural terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, which make it possible to assess the scale of spatial and temporal variability of greenhouse gas emissions and absorption in the territory of the Russian Federation, taking into account the existing diversity and variability of climatic conditions, land use patterns, vegetation and soil cover , relief. The program of carbon landfill activities currently includes 14 regions of the Russian Federation: the Kaliningrad region, the Krasnodar Territory, the Chechen Republic, the Republic of Tatarstan, the Republic of Bashkortostan, the Yamalo-Nenets and Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrugs, Novosibirsk, Moscow, Tyumen, Sverdlovsk, Tver, Voronezh , Sakhalin region. The landfill operators are the leading universities and research institutes of the Russian Federation.


 The meeting of the seminar will be held in the form of a webinar on the Zoom platform.
