Krasnodar, 15 August – Yug Times. Yuri Tkachenko, Head of the regional Centre for monitoring and forecasting of natural and technology-related emergency situations, working under the aegis of the regional Ministry for Emergency Situations and Civil Defence, tells about the reasons for the global climatic changes, possibilities of modern hydrometeorology, and how to resist floods and landscape and household fires.

Q.: How did you get to work at the regional Ministry of Emergency Situations?

A.: After graduating from the Institute of Fish Industry, I had for a long while been working in the regional division of the Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring. Then it simply coincided: an overhaul of the Service began, and at the same time the Centre for monitoring and forecasting of natural and technology-related emergency situations began to be formed as a branch of the regional Ministry for Emergency Situations – and I was invited there. The Ministry planned to establish a system of automatic monitoring and data gathering of dangerous natural phenomena under the aegis of the Centre – and this project roused my interest.

Q.: Why did the necessity for such Centre appeared?

A.: The decision was taken by the regional authorities because of high recurrence of natural emergency situations in the territory of Krasnodar province: a quarter of all dangerous natural phenomena occurred in the country take place in the Kuban region. Our region is the most difficult one as regards weather. So I thought it an ambitious and interesting task – a new challenge, and a new quality of work. This move from the Hydrometeorology to the regional Centre for monitoring and forecasting of emergency situations was painless for me – the type of the work was similar; the tasks overlapped largely; the personnel issues and logistical support were familiar to me.

Q.: What parts of the region deserve your particular attention?

A.: It is the mountain areas and the Black Sea coast. It is there that the rivers may rise extremely fast after heavy rains. It is also the Kuban River – from Stavropol province down to its mouth. And, it is the Azov Sea coast, where rump wave is the main problem.

Q.: What is the level of the work of Russian meteorological agencies if compared with other countries?

A.: All countries are members of the World Meteorological Organization, and they share information with one another. Russia looks quite good among them – as regards the number of [weather] stations, and the preciseness of the forecasts. We occupy the fifth place, or so. We are inferior only to the countries which use mightier super-computers for their weather forecasts.
