Climate research center established in Belarusian academy of sciences

MINSK, 10 March (BelTA) – A climate research center has been established as part of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (NASB), the Academy’s press service told BelTA.

The new agency will take care of researching global and regional climate and its changes in response to natural and man-made factors. The agency will also provide scientific support for Belarus’ international commitments in the area of climate science. The agency will develop the physical foundation for extremely long-term weather forecasts and climate change forecasts, including forecasts of extreme climate phenomena such as droughts, floods, extremely cold or warm winters.

Every year Belarusian farmers suffer considerable losses due to unfavorable weather conditions and climate changes. As a top priority the climate research center will endeavor to evaluate the effect of climate changes on climatically dependent branches of the national economy. Recommendations on adapting to the changes will be worked out.

The climate research center will tightly cooperate with research institutions of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus. The agency will develop reference books and regulatory documents in the area of agricultural and construction climatology, recreation, tourism, and the protection of atmospheric air from pollution in association with central government agencies. The climate research center will team up with the national center for polar studies to study changes in atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, and biosphere in polar latitudes of Eastern Antarctica for the sake of improving the existing models of global and regional changes.

Academician Vladimir Loginov, Chief Research Officer of the Nature Management Institute of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, has been appointed scientific supervisor of the climate research center.
