Project leader Sergei Vorobyov, director of TSU’s collective center “Megaprofile”, noted that most of the marsh lakes in Russia are still insufficiently studied due to the inaccessibility of the location. However, thanks to the use of airboats, scientists will be able to reach these research objects.

It is planned to investigate hundreds of large and small lakes in the West Siberian marshes, Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug and Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug for three years. The main attention will be paid to studying the intensity of carbon emissions from the surface of various types of lakes, the press service noted.

The installed cameras will automatically measure carbon dioxide and methane emissions, as well as the concentration of dissolved carbon in the water. Researchers are also trying to identify sources that produce carbon.

These studies will provide more accurate data on the contribution of swamp lakes in Siberia and the Arctic to greenhouse gas formation, the press service added. Understanding these contributions will help scientists better predict climate and environmental changes and develop strategies to adapt to them.
