Climate change analysis and projections for the Russian part of the Altai-Sayan ecoregion and Kazakhstan and Mongolia frontiers

Climate change analysis and projections for the Russian part of the Altai-Sayan ecoregion and Kazakhstan and Mongolia frontiers. – Moscow: WWF-Russia, 2018. – 288 pp.


This monograph presents a climate analysis for the Russian part of the Altai-Sayan region and describes modern trends in climate change for 1961–1990 and 2007–2016. The forthcoming climate change was analyzed for 1990-1999 (baseline period taken as a reference to assess future changes), 2030-2039 (near-term perspective), 2050-2059 (mid-term perspective), and 2090-2099 (long-term perspective) using a 25 km horizontal resolution regional climate model developed by the Voeikov Main Geophysical Observatory. The following IPCC scenarios were used: RCP8.5 (2030–2039, 2050–2059, 2090–2099) and RCP4.5 (2090–2099).

The book is intended for climate experts, geographers, biologists, and a broad range of readers who are interested in the nature of the Altai-Sayan ecoregion and preservation perspectives.
