Karelian researchers looking for traces of ancient earthquakes in lake bottom sediments

Seismic events that took place in the territory of our republic and the Kola Peninsula 12 millennia ago are proxied by lacustrine sediments. Geophysical methods help detect traces of ancient earthquakes. Research in the field of paleoseismology has practical applications as well. To predict future earthquakes, it is important to understand the patterns of their recurrence in the past. This was the topic of the presentation by Leading Researcher at the Institute of Geology KarRC RAS Pavel Ryazantsev at KarRC RAS Learned Council meeting on September 28th.

Extracts of algae from the White Sea are potential raw material for agricultural crop growth stimulators

Liquid extracts from brown algae are widely used in practice worldwide. They help to increase crop yields and resistance to adverse environmental factors. However, these commercial formulas are kept secret under their trademarks. Studies by Karelian biologists will help develop domestic products from Arctic algae.

Ichthyologists assessed the outcomes of vendace introduction to Lake Vashozero, Kondopoga District

Specialists from the Institute of Biology KarRC RAS studied the state of hydrobiological communities, including the fish fauna, in Lake Vashezero in the Kondopoga District of Karelia. The commercial vendace species was artificially introduced into the lake, along with whitefish, in the 1930s. The outcomes of such an introduction can be assessed objectively only decades later. The conclusion of the scientists is that, unlike other species, the Onego vendance became successfully established and naturalized in Vashozero.

Karelian scientists study lakes that contain fresh as well as saline water at the same time

Meromictic reservoirs are a new research object for scientists at the Karelian Research Center RAS. These lakes are unusual: their lower water layer is saline, while the top column is fresh water. The two parts do not intermix. Specialists use hydrophysical methods to study the interface between the layers, while the paleogeographic approach helps understand the formation history of such reservoirs.
