Abstract

Western Siberia hosts one of the main oil-bearing basins in Russia, producing more than 70 % of the country's oil. It is known that oil field flares release carbon oxides into the atmosphere which contribute to the greenhouse effect. This work details the development of a Geographical Information System (GIS) technique which uses satellite image processing to assess the spatial irregularities of anthropogenic carbon oxide emissions. This approach, which tries to make a quantitative assessment of the impact of atmospheric pollution on forest ecosystems, is based on calculating forest ecosystem areas (cells) which are inside atmospheric pollution zones. Particular issues related to the modeling of atmosphere pollution caused by oil field flares are considered. Pollution zones were revealed by standard modeling of contaminant dispersal in the atmosphere. Polluted ecosystem cells were calculated on the basis of oil production volume.
