Laboratory of Atmosphere-Hydrosphere Physics

Professor A.Romanov (Dr Sc.),

Head of the laboratory

The laboratory is involved in the complex studies of emission sources and atmospheric processes effect on the air quality, microphysical characteristics of tropospheric aerosol at the territory with various natural-climatic conditions as well as the peculiarities of energy and mass exchange between the underlying surface and the atmosphere in natural and transformed geosystems.

Chemical-Analytical Center

Tatyana S. Papina (Dr Sc.),

Head of the Center.

The Chemical-Analytical Center is accredited for technical competence and independence by the Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology of the Russian Federation. The Center specialists perform the analysis of toxic elements, minerals, organic and biogenic substances in the environmental objects (surface, underground and potable water, precipitation, soil, biotic objects), study the pollutants behavior and transformation in aquatic ecosystems and carries out the glaciochemical studies of high-altitude glaciers of Altai for paleoclimate reconstruction and air pollution assessment in Central Asia.

Novosibirsk Branch of IWEP SB RAS

Nadezda I. Ermolaeva PhD , Head of the Branch

The Branch specialists perform the analysis and assessment of hydrological and ecological state of water objects, develop mathematical models of hydrophysical and hydrochemical processes in water objects and carry out the analysis and mathematical modelling of the extreme hydrological events.

Novosibirsk Branch incorporates a Group of RAS Advisor, Laboratory of hydrophysical and environmental processes, Center for aquatic field research. 

Gorno-Altaisk Branch of IWEP SB RAS

Dr. Sc. Olga A. Elchininova,

Head of the Branch

The Branch deals with the analysis and estimation of natural-climatic conditions and resources of Mountain Altai, monitoring and forecast of perspective development of mineral-raw material resources including water for drinking and economic purposes, development of models for sustainable development of mountain territories under modern socio-economic and natural conditions.

Laboratory of Ecological Systems Modelling (Kemerovo)

Evgeny L. Schaslivtsev (Dr.Sc)

The laboratory conducts comprehensive research on monitoring, assessment and prediction of geo-ecological state of the coal-mining areas based on modern GIS technologies.

The Institute has two research stations:

  • The Kyzyl-Ozek research station (soil-biological) in Republic of Altai.
  • The Low-Ob research station (hydrological-hydrochemical and hydrobiological) in Tyumen oblast.
