Why Europe will soon be cold?
What is the climate waiting for Russia and Europe in 15-20 years? Will be there weather abnormalities in the coming decades? Will some areas experience more severe winter, while the others will have hot summer? It all depends on how much the climate will be affected by the dynamics of the possible onset of minimum solar magnetic activity. The Sun's behaviour in future cycles is the main theme of a publication on the forecast and explanation of the minima of solar activity. The paper was prepared with contributions from Elena Popova from the Skobeltsyn Institute of Nuclear Physics (Lomonosov Moscow State University) and was published in Scientific Reports.
Scientists monitor the influence of black carbon on climate in the Russian Arctic
Instrumentation for aerosol monitoring and characterization has been developed by a research team of SINP MSU leading by Dr. O. Popovicheva. In October 2015 new aerosol technology was successfully implemented onboard the research ship “Akademik Trechnikov” of the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute (AARI) during the marine arctic Expedition Sever -2015.
SINP scientists celebrate the 57-th anniversary of the first scientific instruments' space launch
On November 3, 1957 SINP scientists launched scientific instruments to space for the first time in the world. The instruments were mounted onboard the second Earth's satellite. Onboard this satellite the first living being - dog Laika - was also launched to space.
