M.M. Shats, Can.Sc.(Georaph.), the Permafrost Institute nam. after P.I. Melnikov, the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS)

The relevance of studying the main trends of the permafrost dynamics and the scale of its consequences is shown. The main features of the frozen ground development area are described too. There are the results of studying the response to climate change of one of the least stable components of the natural environment – multiyear’s frozen ground (MFG). The article highlights the main methods and approaches to monitoring the state of MFG’s, as well as the economic aspects of their deformation.

Why Russia «River Doctrine»?

A.A. Belyakov, Dr.Sc.(Geograph.), the Institute of Demography, Migration and Regional Development

It is shown that abundance of the rivers and unevenness of distribution of their drain in time and at the territories predetermines need of implementation of grand state projects on a construction of dams and the reservoirs regulating a river drain, and also multipurpose interbasin connections. Defects of the water legislation existing in Russia are revealed and recommendations about its correction are made too. Strategic bases of a state policy concerning internal waters are offered. Also there is supplied information on the offered draft of the River doctrine of the Russian Federation: author assumes reconstruction of the rivers into cascades of reservoirs, use of their water energy and a construction of multipurpose interbasin connections.

Keywords: water management, water law, internal waterways, cascades of reservoirs, regulation of a river drain, use of water energy of the rivers, interbasin connections.


Assessment of the Impact of Mining Industry on the State of Water Resources in the Lena River Basin

V.I. Klepov, Prof.-Dr.Sc.(Engineer.), the Russian State Agrarian University – Moscow Agricultural Academy nam. after K.A. Timiryazev, E.L. Yakovleva, the Moscow-Oka Territorial Administration for Fisheries

Using the example of mining operations conducted in the Lena River basin, the need to assess the consequences of human activities is considered. In this connection, it is proposed to carry out remediation activities in areas left without leveling and soil, as well as reasonable intervention in changing the river channel for the extraction of gold-bearing rocks. This will speed up the process of restoring natural communities and more rational use of natural resources.

Keywords: river hydrology, river basin, natural environment, nature conservation, succession.

D.S. Valiev, Can.Sc.(Economy), I.A. Khabarova,Can.Sc. (Engineer.), D.A. Khabarov, the State University of Land Use Planning

The article concludes that the main problems of accounting for the environmental component in the cadastral valuation of industrial lands and other special purposes lands are the absence of a unified methodology for the registration of environmental parameters, approved at the state level, and the lack of generally accepted environmental parameters. The authors of the article proposed a number of provisions that can serve as a conceptual basis for the development of methodological bases for the registration of environmental factors in the cadastral valuation of industrial lands and other special purposes lands.

Keywords: state cadastral valuation of lands, industrial lands and other special purposes lands, environmental parameters, classification of industrial objects.

The main statistical indicators and average concentrations of pollutants on various methods of averaging are calculated. There is also received cartographic material on total pollution of a soil cover of the city. In general Sevastopol soils refer to the valid categories of pollution identified by a separate sample area with exceeded content of Pb, Cu, Zn.

Keywords: heavy metals, soil pollution, urban soils, statistical indicators.

Environment conditions on Karabash urban region territory (South-Ural forest-steppe woody region) has been analyzed on the base of birch bark leaf plates fluctuative asymmetry index (Betula pendula Roth.). Birch bark trees growing at different distance from industrial pollutants sources as well as growing on recultivated sites (reclamated land) of Zolotaya mountain have been chosen as the object of investigations. As a whole, environment condition on region territory, in spite of efforts undertaken improve the situation is still unfavorable.

A.V. Alfimov, Can.Sc. (Geograph.), D.I. Berman, Prof.-Dr.Sc. (Biology), the Institute of Biological Problems, the North Far East Branch, the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), Magadan

The most productive landscapes of Kolyma headwaters (upstreams) basin – talik floodplains – suffer from man impact in form of the construction of hydropower station and gold mining. Regulated run-off transforms a relief of Kolyma floodplain that conducts to degradation of deciduous forests – the object of protection of Seimchan site in the natural reserve (zapovednic) «Magadansky». Three times reduction of the floodplain areas where chozenia reproduction is possible, through 70-90 years, can cause change of structure of these forests. Gold mining destroyed valleys about 500 creeks where revegetation is interfered by absence of organogenic soil and dryness of washed out grounds. Features of chozenia ecology do this species perspective for revegetation of the disturb lands in northern part of its areal.

Keywords: floodplains, chozenia, Kolyma upstreams, hydroconstruction, gold mining, revegetation.

The physicogeographical characteristics of Volgusha River basin are described, the elements of the hydrological regime are described too, and the river is hydrochemi cally estimated by the content of heavy metals (Cd, Pb, Cu, Zn, Ni, Mn ) in water, bottom sediments and macrophytes of this river. Research materials of the Volgusha River can serve for the ecological assessment of the catchment area of the river, which is part of the SPNA (nature zakaznic) «Dolina of the River Volgusha and the Paramonovsky ravine».

Environmental Protection

Environmental Quality Control and Fees for a Negative Impact on the Environment

I.P. Blokov, Can.Sc. (Engeneer.), the Public Non-Profit Non-Governmental Organization (PNPNGO) «Greenpeace Council»

A fees for a negative environmental impact must regulate this impact. However, its collection did not lead to the reduction of pollution to standard levels. In recent years the total fees was decreasing; it felt down by three times from 2013 to 2018. Fees reduction does not correspond to changes in the emissions, discharges and waste generation. The artical identify the reasons for reducing the efficiency of fees on the base of actual data. Annual fees indexation does not compensate inflation. The list of considered substances was shortened, daily average MAC (maximum allowable concentration) of several common substances was increased, fee for emissions from mobile sources was canceled, coefficient 2 in the Arctic zone was canceled, etc. The author proposed a number of system measures to restore the regulatory role of these payments.

Keywords: pollution fees, negative impact on the environment, environmental protection, pollution control, economic incentives, environmental activities.

L.S. Krutova, the Institute for Advanced Studies and Retraining, the Peoples Friendship University of Russia (RUDN)

The article deals with the problem of greening the economy, the transition to green growth and ensuring sustainable development of the entire socio-economic system of Russia. There is done the analysis of the theoretical foundations and practice of creating environmental insurance business institutions in choosing a mechanism combining raising funds and creating environmental programs. All this instruments affects on operation and development prospects of industrial objects and developing a methodological approach to assessing the formation of a market for environmental insurance services.

One of the most important indicators of water quality is the content of heavy metals and their distribution in the sediments, soils or aquifers. In this regard the results of field studies and laboratory experiments are given. They make it possible to estimate the flow of trace elements from the sediments and the possibility of secondary pollution of water mass, depending on a number of hydrochemical and hydrological factors.

Considers the value of ecosystem services provided by forests and taking into account multiple functions in areas such as biodiversity, disaster risk reduction, climate change mitigation, coupled with the economic and social importance of various forest products. Assessments of development progress towards a green economy require assessments of the value of natural forest capital, including forest ecosystem services and the inclusion of these concepts in the system of economic features related to forest management.
