The Isolation and Mapping of Ecotones in the Urban Environment

The article presents some aspects of the problem of isolation and mapping of urban ecotones. The study of transition zones is necessary not only to determine the boundaries of natural and man-made systems, but also to determine the internal structure and mechanisms of functioning of ecotones. One of the main difficulties mapping ehkotonnyh bands, is the lack of a common classification in step significantly complicates mapping.

Effects of Space Factors in Surface Air Temperature Variations

The digital spectral analysis was carried out for centennial dataset of mean daily values of the surface air temperature anomalies at Basel weather station. In the power spectra of dataset peaks are found, which are associated with the influence of various terrestrial and space factors: the quasibiennialoscillation, the pole tide, luni-solar tides, the rotation of the Earth – Moon system around the barycenter, and the solar activity.

Analysis of Urban Ecotone Classifications

The article presents an analysis of ecotone classifications in the urban environment. The study of ecotone zones is necessary to determine the boundaries of natural and anthropogenic complexes, as well as to study the mechanisms of their functioning. One of the main difficulties in studying ecotone bands is the lack of a generally accepted classification of urban ecotones.

Characteristic of Сontinental Climate in Saratov and St. Petersburg during Global Warming

Indices of continental climate at different time intervals for Saratov and St. Petersburg are calculated. They reflect the tendency of a decrease in continentality, associated with a temperature increase in the winter seasons.

On the Possible Influence of Luni-solar Tides on Subsoil Gases Emission

The possible connection was studied between the emission of various subsoil gases and the variation of the vertical component of gravity acceleration caused by the influence of the luni-solar tides. At negative values of tidal acceleration, the average concentration of methane and its homologues is reduced, accompanied by an increase in the average concentration of helium, nitrogen, oxygen, and carbon dioxide.
