Man-induced Environmental Risks: Monitoring, Management and Remediation of Man-made Changes in Siberia

Objective

Siberia environment has been subjected to serious man-made transformations during last 50 years. Current regional level environmental risks are: direct damages to environment caused by accidents in process of petroleum/gas production and transporting inc luding their influence on water, soil, vegetation and animals; caused by deforestation (cutting and forest fires) variations in Siberian rivers runoffs and wetland regimes; direct and indirect influence of forest fires, flambeau lights and losses of gas and petroleum during their transportation on regional atmosphere composition; deposition of hazardous species leading to risks to soil, water and consequently to risks in the food chain. These regional problems are typical for number of NIS and some Europ ean countries, whose territory are crossed by pipelines and/or are used for petroleum production. Strategic objective of the project is to facilitate elaboration of solid scientific background and understanding of man-made associated environmental risks, their influence on all aspects of regional environment and optimal ways for it remediation by means of coordinated initiatives of a range of relevant RTD projects as well as to achieve improved integration of the European research giving the projects ad ditional synergy in current and future activities and potential for practical applications.Scientific background allowing us to reach this objective is formed by a number of different levels RTD projects devoted to near all aspects of the theme but in vi rtue of synergy lack not resulting in improvement of regional environmental situation. The set comprise coordinated/performed by Partners EC funded thematic international projects , national projects supported by Siberian Branch of RAS, RAS and Russian F oundation for Basic Research and projects performed by NIS Partners under contracts with regional/local administrations and petroleum/gas producing and transporting enterprises/companies.
