April 4-7, 2018, Head of RUDN Department of Theory and History of International Relations, Assoc.prof. D.Degterev, PhD, took part in the 59th Convention of the International Studies Association in San Francisco, USA, delivering a report «Russia as an international donor: soviet legacy vs conventional pragmatism», attending several conference sessions, holding talks with scientific editors of the leading scientific publications of the world discussing publication of RUDN academics’ monographs.

The Association for International Studies was founded in 1959, and is one of the oldest interdisciplinary associations for the study of international, transnational and global problems. The Association brings together over 7,000 members from around the world, including academics, practitioners, policy experts, private sector workers and independent researchers. The 59th Convention Convention was the most numerous - about 5 thousand researchers took part in more than 1,300 sessions. The next convention will be held in March 2019, in Toronto, Canada.

Scientists Reveal the Water Column of the Yamal Lakes Can Be a Microbial Filter

Scientists from the Winogradsky Institute of Microbiology RAS, RUDN University, St. Petersburg State University and the Tyumen Scientific Centre SB RAS studied the microbial communities from several lakes of the Yamal Peninsula. It turned out that methanotrophs (bacteria that use methane as a source of energy) consume methane more actively in the deep mature lakes of the peninsula than in small thermokarst lakes. In this regard, methane emissions into the atmosphere from the surface of deep lakes are low, and only small (relatively younger thermokarst lakes with constitutional ground ice) can make a significant contribution to methane emissions in the north of Western Siberia. Thus, bacteria perform an important function for the climate balance — they reduce the emission of methane into the atmosphere.

RUDN University Physicists Determine the Optimal Conditions for Holding High-Energy Plasma Clouds in Pyrotron

RUDN University physicists have described the conditions for the most efficient operation of long mirror-based variant of cyclotron in the autoresonance mode. These data will bring better understanding of plasma processes in magnetic traps.
