Scientists study the history of swamps to predict climate change
An international team of scientists from the UK, Germany, Romania, and Russia is studying the swamps of the Tomsk Region to predict climate change processes. With the help of peat analysis, they plan to reconstruct paleoecological conditions.
The scientists are working in the international INTERACT network, which includes the TSU’s research station Kaybasovo. The project involved Angelica Feurdean (Senckenberg Biodiversity and Climate Research Center, Frankfurt am Main, Germany; Simon Hutchinson (University of Manchester, Great Britain); graduate student Andrey Diakonu (Romania); and Irina Volkova, associate professor of the Biological Institute of Tomsk State University.
