Geoecological Estimation of Water Resources and Ways to Optimization of Water Consumption

European Geographical Studies, 2016, Vol.(10), Is. 2, pp. 32-37.
DOI: 10.13187/egs.2016.10.32CrossRef

This article gives analysis of basic indicators of natural potential and usage of world and South Caucasus water resources, also discusses global problems of their condition. We should also note that ecologically sound, fresh water resources are one of the most important factors for sustainable development of the country economy. In the course of centuries up to recent decade, people assumed that water, air, forest and soil are elements of nature that can be utilized eternally and in any quantities. Though, due to population growth, industry and agriculture development, water demand has increased and resulted in sharp decrease of water resources. Against the background of present global climate warming and increase of man-made actions, water resources get intensively contaminated that finds extremely negative impact on development of the country economy and finally becomes a reason for different conflicts. This contributed to raising the question of rational usage and protection of water resources. Future growth of water consumption shall be grounded on increased level of river flow monitoring via construction of regulating water reservoirs. In agriculture, it is required to expand the network of sprinklers and introduce dripping irrigation. Important is also problem of stimulation of atmospheric precipitations for expansion of incoming water balance. Necessary complex schemes for water resource utilization shall be developed and protected based on reservoir management principles. Besides, the given work recommends set of measures for improvement of water resource management level.

DOI: 10.13187/egs.2016.10.51CrossRef

The natural conditions of the Astrakhan region largely differ from the natural conditions of most regions of Russia. The position of the area in the zone of deserts and semi-deserts causes its exoticism and uniqueness of environment increases the recreational appeal. It is favorably combines in the Astrakhan region the advantageous geographical position, natural potential and rich cultural heritage. This unique mix of historical, cultural and natural environment creates a good basis and perspective for the functional areas of planning for the development of tourism and recreation activities.

Mapping of Eco-Trails in the Territory of Reserve Bogdinsko-Baskunchakskogo

European Geographical Studies, 2016, Vol.(10), Is. 2, pp. 57-62.
DOI: 10.13187/egs.2016.10.57CrossRef

This article discusses the use of GIS technology for mapping ecological trails in the «Bogdinsko–Baskunchak» state nature reserve. The article presents the analysis of the role of cartographic databases, GIS applications in the activities of specially protected areas of Russia that shows that a separate specially protected conservation area as a whole has a fairly diverse cartographic support, rather than meeting the requirements of the modern level of development of GIS-technologies. Some employees of protected areas used in the only topographic maps, land and forest management, which sometimes complicates the work. To do this, you need to work with and deal with space images ecotrail mapping of protected areas further. The creation of ecological trail «Bogdinsko–Baskunchak reserve» is only the first step in the process of organizing the full-featured GIS solutions. Such interactive maps may be part of the environmental management of the Astrakhan region.

DOI: 10.13187/egs.2016.10.63CrossRef

The article discusses the modern tendencies and experience of development of Northern territories in the Arctic sector – European (Norway, Sweden, Finland) and American (Canada, USA).
