In Yakutia, they plan to create a unified information system for monitoring the state of permafrost. The data obtained with its help will help predict the degradation of such areas.

According to TASS, the head of the republic Aisen Nikolaev told about the innovation in an interview during the Northern Forum on Sustainable Development. It takes place in Yakutsk from September 27 to 30. According to him, work is underway to introduce such a system. It will make it possible to carry out a permafrost degradation geocryological forecast or other consequences.
