Russian Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring (Roshydromet)
Федеральная служба по гидрометеорологии и мониторингу окружающей среды (Росгидромет)

Russia

Roshydromet is a federal executive body under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology of the Russian Federation. Roshydromet is involved in administrating the state property and providing services in hydrometeorology and related fields, as well as environmental monitoring. Again, Roshydromet acts as a governmental supervisor of activities in modification of meteorological and other geophysical processes.

Roshydromet includes 17 Federal research institutions. Two of them are state-owned research centres of the Russian Federation. These are "The Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute” and "The Hydrometeorological Research Centre of the Russian Federation".

  • "Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute"
  • "Institute of Global Climate and Ecology of Roshydromet & RAS"
  • "Voeikov Main Geophysical observatory"
  • "State Hydrological Institute"
  • "Hydrometeorological Research Center of Russian Federation"
  • "State Hydrochemical Institute"
  • "All-Russian Research Institute of Hydrometeorological Information - World Data Center"
  • "All-Russian Scientific-Research Agricultural Institut"
  • "Zubov State Oceanographic Institute"
  • "Central Aerological Observatory"
  • "Scientific Research Center of Space Hydrometeorology "Planeta"
  • "Siberian Research Regional Hydrometeorological Institute"
  • "High-Mountain Geophysical Institute»
  • "Fydorov Institute of Applied Geophysics"
  • "Research and Production Association "Typhoon"
  • "Far Eastern Regional Hydrometeorological Research Institute"
  • "Caspian Marine Research Center"

Responsibilities

  • State oversight of the work on modification of meteorological and other geophysical processes on the territory of the Russian Federation;
  • Licensing of certain activities within the competence of the Service in accordance with the laws of the Russian Federation;
  • State records of surface water and maintenance of public water inventory in terms of surface water bodies;
  • Maintenance of the Uniform State Fund data on the state of the environment and its pollution;
  • The formation and maintenance of the state monitoring network, including the organization and the termination of fixed and mobile observation points and the determination of their location;
  • State monitoring of ambient air

Going with the Arctic flow

An international team of scientists has monitored the flow of waters in the seas around the Eastern Arctic Ocean, leading to a better understanding of the processes controlling their circulation.

The Vilkitsky Strait, an important gateway connecting the Kara and Laptev Seas in the Eastern Arctic Ocean, is responsible for the transportation and mixing of fresh and salt water, which influences the circulation of waters in the Arctic Ocean. The processes that lead to the movement and dispersal of these waters, however, are poorly understood.

Scientists from Roshydromet in Russia, in collaboration with colleagues from Germany, have used unmanned monitoring vessels to record the salinity, depth and temperature of waters flowing through the strait.

Their findings have provided new insights into the physical processes that influence the circulation of waters in the Arctic region.
