• Kinematic Wave Equations for Movable Riverbeds

Abstract: The mathematical model of kinematic wave, that is widely used in hydrological calculations, is generalized to compute processes in deformable channels. Self-similar solutions to the kinematic wave equations, namely, the discontinuous wave of increase and the “simple” wave of decrease are generalized. A numerical method is proposed for solving the kinematic wave equations for deformable channels. The comparison of calculation results with self-similar solutions revealed a good agreement.

• Short-range Streamflow Forecasting of the Kama River Based on the HBV
Model Application

Abstract: The experience of constructing a method for short-range forecasting of water discharge in the Kama River basin is described. The forecast method is based on the HBV-96 conceptual model of runoff formation in a watershed with optimized parameters, as well as on the algorithm for the correction of operational forecasts. It is shown that if the runoff formation model parameters are optimized and the forecast correction algorithm is applied, the model is highly efficient at simulating variations in water discharge at gaging stations and can be used for operational short-range hydrological forecasting and for the evaluation of the hazard of expected hydrological conditions on the rivers. The implementation of the forecasting method allows obtaining water discharge forecasts for gaging stations in the Kama River basin with a lead time up to 3 days using meteorological forecasts with a corresponding lead time.

• Enhanced Long-term and Snow-based Streamflow Forecasting by Artificial
Intelligent Methods Using Satellite Imagery and Seasonal Information

Abstract: This paper investigates the simultaneous use of in-situ hydrologic measurements in combination with two different artificial intelligent (AI) methods, namely, Adaptive Neuro Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS) and Artificial Neural Network (ANN), for developing enhanced long-term streamflow forecasting models. To enhance the reliability of the proposed models’ outputs, a sub-basin method using the regionalization approach is proposed. Furthermore, to accelerate the training process and achieve more accurate handling of seasonal changes, a parameter representing seasonal variations is introduced. The models are applied to the mountainous Talezang basin, southwestern Iran, for which there is a 14-year series of monthly in-situ data records and snow cover area data obtained from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS). The results indicate that the use of the sub-basin approach significantly improves both AI methods’ performances. Moreover, it is deduced that the use of seasonal information and satellite data has a great impact on the model performance and accuracy. Comparing the long-term flow forecasts of both models showed that the ANFIS model is superior to the ANN.

• Planetary Upper-level Frontal Zone in the Euro-Atlantic Sector in Summer
in 1990–2019

Abstract: The analysis of monthly mean locations of the planetary upper-level frontal zone in the Euro-Atlantic sector in summer during 1990–2019 is presented. Specific positions for the summer months (June, July, and August) are noted, and maximum northward displacements from the climatological normal for 1961–1990 are found in the years with the formation of the atmospheric blocking. The values of standard deviations of the displacements relative to the normal position were calculated for the summer period of each year both for the North Atlantic, Europe, and the European part of Russia and for the Euro-Atlantic sector. On the basis of linear regression, a tendency is revealed toward an increase in the meridional displacements of the planetary upper-level frontal zone over the recent thirty years and toward the occurrence of maximum deviations over the last decade.

• Features of the Relationship between Electrical and Radar Parameters of
Thunderclouds in India (Field Studies)

Abstract: The analysis of field observations of thunderclouds in India is provided. The characteristics of the cloud collection obtained from the radar and lightning detection network in the area of the city of Aurangabad (the Maharashtra province, India) are considered. The maximum radar reflectivity of thunderstorm cells, the volume of the supercooled part above the 0°C isotherm, the intensity and precipitation flux, and the frequency of electric discharges are obtained. It is shown that the frequency of electric discharges is linked with some radar parameters of thunderclouds, and this relationship depends on the stage of cloud development. Comparative field data for other regions are given.

• Comparison of World Wide Lightning Location Network (WWLLN) Data and
Standard Observations at Weather Stations in the Southern Russian Far East

Abstract: Standard observations at 20 weather stations were compared with data of the World Wide Lightning Location Network (WWLLN) in the south of the Russian Far East for the period of 2009–2018. Using two statistical methods, the estimates are obtained of the radii of the circular region of the WWLLN data sample, at which the best consistency of the WWLLN data with the number of days with thunderstorms according to weather station data is observed. It is shown that these radii are in the range from 12 to 36 km for all stations, with an average value of 23 km. Daytime radii are smaller than nighttime ones, the average values for all stations are equal to 21 and 26 km, respectively. It is demonstrated that an increase/decrease in the radius of the WWLLN data sample by 1 km relative to the average value leads to an increase/decrease in the average annual number of days with WWLLN lightning strikes relative to weather reports by  $$\sim$$ 1 day.

• Meridional Components of Atmospheric Circulation and Arctic Ice Cover in
Summer

Abstract: Statistical relationships are investigated between changes in total Arctic sea ice volume and variations in mean meridional velocities of air crossing the corresponding sections of the southern Arctic boundary during the summer months in 1979–2018. A consistent significant correlation between the ice volume and northerly wind speeds in the lower tropospheric layers is revealed for the Siberian sector. An increase in the analyzed correlation is found in 2012–2020 for all Northern Hemisphere sectors, except for the Atlantic one, which is supposedly due to the decrease in mean solar activity levels taking place against the intensifying global climate warming.

• Closed Torey Lakes: Is It Possible to Predict Changes in Hydrological
Regime'

Abstract: A model of the water balance of Torey Lakes is proposed. The model is based on the integration of satellite data for 1989–2020 and ground-based observation data for the period of 1965–2018. The analysis of long-term changes in the water level in the lakes revealed its cyclicity. A possible change in the level of Torey Lakes is estimated taking into account the impact of the construction of a hydraulic structure on the transboundary Ul’dza River. Variants of the planned development of water use in the Mongolian part of the catchment area in the form of the water inflow reduction by 10 and 20% are considered. The water balance model is used to demonstrate a possible negative impact of inflow variations on the hydrological regime of the lakes.

• Modeling Atmospheric Air Pollution of an Industrial City with Fine
Particulate Matter

Abstract: The paper deals with the quantification of fine particulate matter (PM10 ) dispersion in atmospheric air of an industrial city using the AERMOD model by an example of Zhlobin (the Gomel oblast, Belarus). Model input data and procedures for the emission inventory and obtaining spatially distributed estimates are described. Emissions and dispersion of PM10 from the main categories of sources are considered, including industrial facilities, road and off-road mobile sources, domestic sector, and agriculture. It is shown that the main contribution to high PM10 concentrations in atmospheric air is made by industrial enterprises, the domestic sector, and road transport. The spatial pattern of urban air pollution is described. The simulation results are compared with the results of PM10 measurements at the monitoring site, their satisfactory consistency is demonstrated.

• Approaches and Criteria for Ecological Regulation of Environmental Quality

Abstract: Methodology for the ecological regulation of environmental quality by radioactivity levels is presented. Reference levels of radionuclides in surface waters and soil are determined to ensure the radiation safety of ecosystems. The developed criteria were tested using the data of long-term (2000–2018) radiation monitoring in the observation areas of nuclear power facilities like radiochemical plants, nuclear power plants with VVER, RBMK, and BN reactors. It is shown that the activity of the considered nuclear power facilities did not lead to the exceeding of ecologically safe levels of radionuclides in environmental components during the study period.

• Approaches to the Development of Engineering Models of Radiocarbon
Migration in Water Bodies

Abstract: The issues of radiocarbon forecasting in surface land water are considered. Numerical estimates of radiocarbon specific activity values in surface water caused by natural sources, anthropogenic discharges, and emissions from NPPs are presented. The estimates are based on literature data on stable carbon and 14C measurements in air, water, and other components of water bodies. The estimates of the main parameters of biochemical migration of 14C in surface water are given. A need in taking into account the elimination biochemical cycle of 14C for modeling its migration is substantiated.

• Transformation of Radiocesium Speciation in Ponds at the Vicinity of
Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant and Dynamics of Its Distribution in
Sediment–Water System

Abstract: The paper is concerned with the results of 137Cs monitoring in the irrigation ponds of the Okuma town in the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant (FDNPP) exclusion zone. The 137Cs activity concentrations in the ponds appeared to be higher than those in the rivers and dam reservoirs in the region. The study has revealed a trend for a decline in 137Cs activity concentrations, both particulate and dissolved. The rate of particulate 137Cs decline was much higher than that of dissolved. The total distribution coefficient  $$K_\mathrm{d}(^{137}\mathrm{Cs}$$ ) in the suspended sediment–water system in the studied ponds was decreasing in time with the rate constant of 0.12–0.18 year–1. Assuming that the decrease in  $$K_\mathrm{d}$$  is associated with decomposition of hot glassy particles, the time scale of 137Cs leaching from them in these water bodies was estimated to be 5–8 years. These estimates are consistent with the findings of recent laboratory experiments on the subject. With respect to seasonal variations, the highest levels of dissolved 137Cs in the studied ponds were observed from June to October as a function of specific pond and monitoring year. Based on data about 137Cs speciation in the bottom sediment top layer of the ponds and its distribution in the sediment–water system, the exchangeable radiocesium interception potential  $$\mathit{RIP}^\mathrm{ex}(K)$$  for the ponds sediments was estimated to be 1650–2250 mg-eq/kg, which is within the range of values measured by laboratory studies.

• Quasi-Biennial Oscillation of Zonal Wind in the Equatorial Stratosphere
and Its Influence on Interannual Fluctuations in the Depth of the
Antarctic Ozone Hole

Abstract: The Antarctic ozone hole is observed annually in spring due to the complex influence of photochemical and dynamical processes. The increased concentration of ozone-depleting substances in the atmosphere causes a long-term negative trend in total ozone (TO). Intense interannual fluctuations in TO against a background of the long-term trend associated with dynamic atmospheric processes do not allow assessing definitely the direction of the trend (growth/decline) in the recent years. Studying the dependence of interannual fluctuations in the ozone hole intensity on the equatorial quasi-biennial oscillation (QBO) allows identifying natural causes of variations and assessing the trend due to anthropogenic factors. The long-term QBO forecast allows predicting different phenomena that depend on the QBO.

• Radar Method for Detecting Wind Speed Vector Field Inhomogeneities

Abstract: Modern weather radars have difficulties in detecting wind-related weather hazards (wind shear, microburst, tornado, etc.). For this purpose, the authors propose a method based on using a new parameter: bandwidth-duration product (hereinafter, the base) of the received radar signal. The idea of its estimation is based on an analogy with the concept of the “base” used in engineering, which is an indicator of complication of the emitted pulse internal structure. It is shown that when a radar observes various types of inhomogeneities of the wind speed vector field, the received signal is formed by two air masses with different characteristics. Consequently, the input signal is the sum of two components with different power, average frequency, and spectral width. As a result, its structure becomes more complex, which can be detected by evaluating the base.

• Greenhouse Gas Emission from Combustion of Associated Petroleum Gas in
Russia

Abstract: The average weighted long-term component composition of associated petroleum gas burned at the fields in Russia is obtained, where the volume fractions of carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) make up 0.8 and 66.4%, respectively. Based on it, the national emission factors of greenhouse gases from the flaring of associated petroleum gas are developed: the values are equal to  $$2.76 \times 10^3$$  t CO2 and  $$0.0155\times 10^3$$  t CH4 per  $$1 \times 10^{6}$$  m3 of the gas burnt. The calculations based on the emission factors led to the 37% increase in total equivalent emission of CO2 and CH4 as compared to the calculations based on the IPCC emission factors. The use of the national emission factors increases the reliability of the estimates of greenhouse gas emissions and the evaluation of their impact on climate.

• Statistical and Model Estimates of the Relationship between the Intensity
and Duration of Tropical Cyclones

Abstract: Statistical estimates of the relationship between the duration and intensity of tropical cyclones using RSMC data for the period of 1951–2019 are presented. A good correspondence is noted between the duration of tropical cyclones, including the most powerful ones (typhoons), and their maximum intensity for the Northwest Pacific expressed in the form of power-law dependence. The similar dependences are obtained for the tropical cyclones transitioned into extratropical ones.

• Influence of Regularity of Satellite Microwave Radiometer Measurements on
the Accuracy of Brightness Temperature Reproduction in the Areas of
Tropical Cyclones

Abstract: An accuracy of reproduction of daily variations in the ocean–atmosphere system brightness temperature in the areas of development and movement of tropical hurricanes in the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico is analyzed. The analysis is based on the data of single and group satellite microwave radiometer measurements. The results are obtained using archival measurement data of SSM/I radiometers from the F11, F13, F14, and F15 DMSP satellites during the period of existence of tropical hurricanes Bret and Wilma. An example is given to demonstrate the use of daily brightness temperatures obtained from DMSP satellites for monitoring the development and propagation of hurricane Wilma.
