TSU scientist won the prestigious Arctic Awards 2018
Sergey Kirpotin, director of the TSU Center for Excellence Bio-Clim-Land, won the Arctic Awards 2018, established by the Arctic World Club and the Association of Polar Explorers. The Tomsk scientist is engaged in research on climate change and is the only Russian participant in the new large-scale international project T-MOSAiC, which organizes ground-based research in the Arctic Region.
- The attention of scientists from all over the world is riveted on the Arctic, but the available knowledge and data are still not enough to fully understand what is happening in this region, notes Sergey Kirpotin. - To understand the essence of these global processes, new large-scale studies are needed, and T-MOSAiC is involved in organizing and realizing them. Scientific projects implemented under the auspices of this consortium should not only provide new information about the transformations that our planet is undergoing, but also help to fairly accurately predict further changes.
