Ph.D in Geography

Research Interests:
The interaction of climate and surface characteristics in cold period:
- conjugation of spatial and temporal variability of surface air temperature, precipitation, atmospheric circulation indices variability of snow cover (including as part of the water balance), soil temperature, ice phenomena;
- features of the interaction study characteristics within different plant communities on a local and regional spatial scales;
- evaluation of the significance for methodological approaches to the satellite data using in studies of seasonal and long-term variability of the Earth's surface.
