TSU glacier research in Aktru received high praise from WGMS

Michael Zemp, director of the World Glacier Monitoring Service and professor at the University of Zurich, highlighted the role of TSU’s research on climate and glaciers in the rocky glacier basin Aktru in understanding climate change, during the plenary session of the conference “Dynamics and interactions of the Earth’s geosphere”.

He noted that the Left Aktru glacier, where TSU scientists work together with their colleagues from the Institute of Geography of the Russian Academy of Sciences, is a unique monitoring site. It has one of the longest series of instrumental observations of Earth. There are only two other glaciers like that in Russia, and they are both located in the Caucasus.
