Implications of Climate Change on Russia Hardback
Edited by Michelle D. Monahan, Jonathan N. Wiley
The Russian Federation is already experiencing the impacts of climate change in the form of milder winters, melting permafrost, changing precipitation patterns, the spread of disease, and increased incidence of drought, flooding, and other extreme weather events.
Many of these observed climate impacts are having concrete, negative effects on Russians' quality of life.
By 2030, Russia will start to feel the impacts of climate change in relation to both water and food supply.
This book identifies and summarises the latest research related to the impact of climate change on Russia.
