YAKUTSK, September 11. /TASS/. The glaciers of Russia’s Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) [Siberia] have reduced by 70% for the past 50 years, Doctor of Geography Science Alexey Galanin told TASS on Friday.
"Starting from 1957, an approximate date of the global warming process beginning, the mount glaciers’ height has reduced by 70%, its total area faced decrease of 40%," Galanin said. "Furthermore over the last ten years the speed of glaciers’ melting has been rising."
Melting process has caused the 2,000-year-old glaciers appearing at the surface. According to the scientist, such a fast melting may be followed by the water level increase in the northern rivers of the region.
"Climate changes are not that dangerous for the Sakha Republic as for other regions," he said.
According to experts, the climate changing process has a cycling core, so the warming may last till 2020, after that cooling process might start.
