I am dealing with plant ecology, biodiversity dynamics, structural-functional changes of phitocenosii in the destabilized environment, esp. meadows near non-stable lakes, forming of halophitic plants communities in dried bottom of Aral Sea and endangered and endemic species preservation. I studied ecosystems state in a catena with human ecology.

  • Gravity variations determined from GRACE and GRACE-FO monthly solutions for analyzing water mass changes in the Aral Sea
    Lorant Foldvary, Victor Statov, Nizamatdin Mamutov, Sanjar Khikmatullaev, and Muxammadyusuf Ergashev

    EDP Sciences
    The GRACE large-scale sequent GRACE-FO gravity satellite mission is providing monthly gravity field solutions for almost 20 years enabling a unique opportunity to monitor large-scale mass variation processes. The gravity anomaly time series for the Aral Sea region has been derived for the period of April 2002 to January 2022. The method of determining gravity anomaly time series from GRACE and GRACE-FO monthly solutions has been improved by taking into account the mass variations of the Caspian Sea. The gravity anomaly time series then has been compared to mass anomaly estimates. For deriving mass anomaly, beyond the available water volume data, density variations were determined by taking into account salinity and temperature changes. Unfortunately, no reliable information either on the salinity or on water temperature changes is available or accessible. Furthermore, not only the data but also the methodology of determining the density is not reliable. Still, the tests suggest that slight improvement in correlation due to the involvement of salinity information occurs.

  • Some issues of geoinformatics support for agroclimatic zoning in the South Aral Sea basin

    EDP Sciences
    The possibility of building a regional system for assessing the climatic potential and agroclimatic zoning using geoinformation approaches and specialized description language CSML (Climate Science Modelling Language) for the Southern Aral Sea basin. Modern approaches to the construction of agroclimatic zoning systems using ground-based and space-based monitoring are discussed. The necessity of combining geoecological and bioclimatic zoning of the territory using spatial databases is shown.

    The article discusses the results of the study of sandy deserts, which allowed us to obtain and reveal a number of important laws and mechanisms of formation, formation, movement and development of Aeolian landforms. The establishment of these patterns helps to solve a number of practical tasks to combat sand drifts in the sandy desert of various objects. In connection with the prospects for the development of this territory, it is very important to know the direction and intensity of the development of these processes. The obtained data on the mechanism and structure of the entire air-soil flow, starting from the moment of its formation, i.e. in the blowing zone, and ending with the transfer and deposition of soil particles by wind in the accumulation zone, make it possible to increase the level of scientific validity of the rational use of soil resources, as well as to take timely measures to protect the environment.

  • Applicability of grace and Grace-FO for monitoring water mass changes of the aral SEA and the caspian SEA

    The GRACE gravity satellite mission has provided monthly gravity field solutions for about 15 years enabling a unique opportunity to monitor large scale mass variation processes. By the end of the GRACE, the GRACE-FO mission was launched in order to continue the time series of monthly gravity fields. The two missions are similar in most aspects apart from the improved intersatellite range rate measurements, which is performed with lasers in addition to microwaves. An obvious demand for the geoscientific applications of the monthly gravity field models is to understand the consistency of the models provided by the two missions. This study provides a case-study related consistency investigation of GRACE and GRACE-FO monthly solutions for the Aral Sea region. As the closeness of the Caspian Sea may influence the monthly mass variations of the Aral Sea, it has also been involved in the investigations. According to the results, GRACE-FO models seem to continue the mass variations of the GRACE period properly, therefore their use jointly with GRACE is suggested. Based on the justified characteristics of the gravity anomaly by water volume variations in the case of the Aral Sea, GRACE models for the period March–June 2017 are suggested to be neglected. Though the correlation between water volume and monthly gravity field variations is convincing in the case of the Aral Sea, no such a correlation for the Caspian Sea could have been detected, which suggests to be the consequence of other mass varying processes, may be related to the seismicity of the Caspian Sea area.
