Climate Forecast: 8 Regions of Russia May Go Into the Sea Soon

After 50 years, 8 regions of Russia may possibly be flooded. This forecast was made by specialists of the Climate Physics Laboratory at the Ural Federal University.

      According to scientists, by 2050 significant warming may be recorded in the northern regions of the Russian Federation. That is the conclusion they arrived at based on monitoring of greenhouse gases and the process of melting glaciers.

      Experts point out that over 50 years the average temperature in the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation has increased significantly. Previously, it was -10 degrees, and now has risen up to -5. After reaching the level of +1 centigrade, active melting processes are bound to start.

      Scientists assume that the first thing to happen will be melting of thin layers in Western Siberia, which can potentially cause flooding of towns on the Yamal Peninsula.
