Abstract

The natural systems in the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation have a high vulnerability. The most significant environmental problems in the Russian Arctic are mainly associated with the availability of impact territories of intensive economic activity. One of the main conditions of geo-environmental stability in this area is to maintain the existing permafrost conditions, which excludes the development of adverse cryogenic engineering-geological processes. The solution to the problem of security of the population in the special conditions of the Russian Arctic requires the use of environmentally safe and economically feasible innovative technologies and rehabilitation areas.
