East Sayan

Twice during the summer season, the researchers of Limnological Institute conducted fieldworks on the glaciers of the East Sayan located near Peak Topographov within two State Projects (headed by A. Fedotov and E. Osipov). Snow and ice were sampled for analyses of their chemical and isotopic composition. A meteorological station was set in this area. New and unique data were obtained on structure, alimentation and melting of glaciers, as well as on their meteorological regime.
