RUDN researchers tell about the evolution of the Earth surface deformation at the World Multidisciplinary Earth Science Symposium

Abnormal horizontal deformations can be symptoms of the coming earthquake – this was the topic of report of V.Kaftan and A.Melnikov, experts from RUDN Agrarian and Technological Institute at the World Multidisciplinary Earth Science Symposium – WMESS held in Prague in September 2017.

Researchers demonstrated results of many years of experiments and observations and suggested an approach to building a scale of earthquakes potential danger with the help of satellite navigation systems.

The Russian delegation comprised 15 representatives of the RF research and academic institutions. Reports of RUDN experts will be published in IOP Earth and Environmental Sciences, indexed in Web of Science and SCOPUS.

RUDN Mathematicians: 5G will cope with traffic when using WiGig

RUDN mathematicians investigated the possibility of combining 5 GNR technology and WiGig — a high-frequency range that allows you to transfer data at speeds up to 10 Gbps. This will smooth traffic fluctuations in 5Gnetworks and cope with user requests.

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.
