Latest principal results

  • From meteorological observations in the Khibiny massif, a permanent warming of climate has been observed, as seen for all seasons, and all heights. Since 1988 up to now (with one exception in 1998), only positive deviations of the mean annual temperature from the norm of both 1961-1990 and 1881-1960 have been registered. The warming manifests in distinct landscape changes, such as a raise of the forest zone upper boundary, intrusion of the forest-tundra into the tundra zone, and a total shrinking of the volume and area of glaciers and snowfields.
  • With the use of the boundary layer model, the climatic heights of the mixing layer over the central region of the Kola Peninsula are calculated and the ozone contents on its upper boundary are estimated from the data of the nearest ozone-sounding station in Sodankula, Finland. It is shown that maximum surface ozone concentrations do not exceed those on the upper boundary of the mixing layer, suggesting the turbulent mechanism of ozone surface layer formation in Arctic.
  • From analysis of long term data of ozone-sounding Arctic stations, it is shown that the violation of the quasi-stationary state of the tropopause in the region of polar jet stream can lead to stratospheric ozone flowing into the tropospheric folds, resulting in the formation of lens-like structures with enhanced ozone content in the troposphere. This leads to an inconvertible stratosphere-troposphere exchange.
  • For the first time, regularities in the variations of surface ozone content connected with specific features of turbulent mixing in various synoptic objects, including atmospheric fronts, peripheries of baric structures, anticyclone regions, etc., are studied and explained in terms of atmospheric dynamics for different seasons and synoptic conditions in Arctic.
  • Long term regular measurements of surface ozone content in the mountains of Arctic (Lovchorr mountain, height 1089 m, the Khibiny massif) have been started. The results show that the surface ozone contents in this site correspond to those in the free atmosphere over the central part of the Kola Peninsula, and can be used to estimate the relative contribution of the transport and photochemical processes to the formation of distributions of surface ozone contents at high latitudes for different levels of anthropogenic contamination of the air.
  • The analysis of observations at the top of Lovchorr mountain shows that the appearance of a foehn from the free atmosphere at the height of the station is accompanied by synchronous variations in the surface ozone content, relative humidity and, a lesser degree, air temperature. Surface ozone content enhancements in the presence of foehns make 10-20 ppbv and are connected with the arrival of the air enriched with ozone from higher tropospheric layers.
  • It is shown that the direct contribution of ordered vertical air motions to the diurnal variations of surface ozone concentration in Arctic does not exceed, in average, 2-3% above rugged terrain, and 10-15% at the height of ~ 1 km. This fact along with the results of earlier studies of the dynamics of surface ozone concentration on the Kola Peninsula and Shpitsbergen archipelago allows us to estimate the contributions of all processes that control the balance of surface ozone concentrations in the atmosphere of the Barents region, and conclude that the turbulent mixing is the dominant process.
  • From examining ozone vertical distribution and its temporal variations in the lower troposphere by the data of 60 mountain monitoring stations in Arctic (Khibiny, Scandinavia, Shpitsbergen, Greenland), Alps, Pyrenees, Apennines, Balkan Mountains, and the Caucasus, it is shown that the ozone variations in Arctic are mostly controlled by atmospheric dynamic processes. The contribution from photochemical processes is essential only at moderate and southern latitudes in the warm half-year. The main photochemical ozone sources are located in a 1.5-2 km surface layer and their intensity depends on the regional peculiarities and character of mesoscale circulation.
  • From the analysis of variations of atmospheric electromagnetic noise at the frequency of the first Shuman resonance (SR1) measured by the two-component induction magnetometer at observatory Lovozero in the year 2007, it is demonstrated that:
    • SR1 power variations reproduce the known spatio-temporal regularities of the global lightning discharge activity, namely: (a) maximum activity around 16 –18 LT in all three world centers of lightning discharge activity; (b) an increase in the number of thunderstorms in the Northern Hemisphere in summer;
    • Energy relations between the Asian and American SR1 power maximums greatly varied in 2007: the Asian maximum was stronger than the American one in January through May and in December but they were nearly equal in power in June through October, the American maximum even being somewhat stronger. Only in March the African maximum exceeded in power the Asian and American maximums.
    • Distinct SR1 power maximum is revealed around 06 UT, its most likely cause being the presence of a thunderstorm source in the west of the central part of the Pacific ocean with a peak activity at 21-22 LT and power which is several times less than the power of the major three world lightning centers.
  • From measurements on the Kola Peninsula, SR1 power, considered as an indicator of lightning global generation, is examined under various galactic cosmic ray (GCR) conditions. Analysis is performed for the years 2001 (GCR minimum) and 2007 (GCR maximum). It is found that the effect of GCR is most pronounced for five months, namely, January, and September through December. In these months, SR1 power for 2001 exceeded factor 1.5 or more SR1 power for 2007. Under summer conditions in the Northern Hemisphere this difference disappears in the east-west component, and the north-south component in April through June is characterized by the inverse relation, when SR1 power in 2001 appears even smaller than in 2007. The interpretation of this effect is as follows. While an increase in GCR leads to more frequent lightning generation, yet the intensity of each lightning decreases because of early breakdown in the charge separation and accumulation in a thunderstorm cloud. Conversly, a decrease in GCR, while leading to scarcity in lightning generation, makes more probable the accumulation of large power by a thunderstorm cloud and the enhancement in lightning power up to maximum permissible values.
  • With the use of Landau-Zener and Rozen-Zener quantum-chemical approximations, the quenching rate coefficients of electronically excited molecules of nitrogen N2(A3Σu+,v) and oxygen О2(a1Δg,v) and О2(b1Σg+,v) in collisions with molecules of N2 and О2 have been calculated. A good agreement between the model and observed values is achieved.
  • A detailed model of electronic kinetics of molecular nitrogen N2, molecular oxygen O2 and nitrogen oxide NO has been developed. The model was applied to show that at the heights of the middle atmosphere, during SPEs, a significant part of electronic energy of N2 and О2 is transformed into the energy of very active singlet oxygen and vibrationally excited O2 in molecular collisions, which can transfer their excitation energy to the main molecules of infrared radiation of the middle atmosphere.
  • For the first time calculations of the quenching rate coefficients have been performed for the collisions of N2(a1Πg,v), N2(a‘1Σu−,v), N2(w1Δu,v) with N2 , and O2(A3Σu+,v), O2(c1Σu−,v), O2(A‘3Δu,v) with O2, and the contributions of intramolecular and intermolecular electron energy transfer processes have been estimated for the quenching processes.
  • Using the results of calculations of oxygen losses from the upper atmosphere of Venus due to O+ pickup by the solar wind plasma, it is shown that a non-magnetic planet could lose the mass of water varying from a few to 100 per cent of the mass of the Earth’s ocean for the period of 4.6 billion years of the solar system evolution.
  • For the first time 3D modeling of erosion of the Martian ionosphere due to interaction with extremely intense solar wind and EUV solar radiation at the early stage of evolution (first ~ 150 million years) is performed. It is shown that the rate of О+ ion pickup by the solar wind could be by four orders of magnitude greater than at the present time. Yet, even that intense pickup of О+ ions produced, in particular, by water vapor photolysis could only cause a loss of not more than 8 m of the Mars ocean. The estimates of water losses by Mars due to cold ion outflow for the early 150 million years of evolution, considering the uncertainty in the efficiency of this process, yield 10-70 m of the Martian planetary ocean.
