Tyumen University to open ecology monitoring laboratory

Students and young scientists at the Tyumen State University will do ecology research at a special laboratory, which the University will organize. This laboratory will be used also for Arctic projects, Director of the Universityís Institute of the Earthís Studies Vitaly Khoroshavin said.

"We shall have a laboratory, where students would be able to make research, related to analyzing natural environments: mostly soil, water. <…> Students will learn how the equipment works, they will make scientific research - we shall involve students actively to scientific work, where not much is possible without ecological chemical analyses," he said.

The laboratory may be used for research into the Arctic zone’s environment, he continued.

"Right now, our researchers continue works in the fields," he said. "They are working at the Khanty-Mansi Regionís natural parks, another group works at the local national reserve, and the third group is working in the Yamalo-Nenets Region."

"Thus, the new laboratory will be handy for them in implementation of research results as they have analyzed the collected materials during such trips," he added.

According to the Universityís press service, the new ecology monitoring laboratory will have modern equipment for chemical and physical measurements. The University has reported earlier that its students and specialists every year participate in various scientific expeditions, during which they collect samples for further studies and recommendations. In 2018, the experts jointly with the Yamalo-Nenets Regionís government published the regionís ecology map, which contains data on the environmentís conditions and on the social and economic activities.

The Instituteís director told TASS earlier that within the current field season, the scientists would study ecology consequences for small rivers from oil and gas production; they will offer recommendations for soil re-vegetation at Yamalís oil-polluted areas, and will observe rivers in the Tyumen Region.
