Dust, in addition to a negative aesthetic moment, is a danger to human health. Particularly dangerous is fine dust that gets through the respiratory system into the vital organs of a person and can cause serious diseases. All residents of the city, without exception, are subject to the negative influence of dust.
The program started in 2019.
In Yakutsk, studies are being carried out to determine the amount and chemical composition of dust and the causes of dustiness in the city. The main conclusion of the study: the main reason for the increased dust in Yakutsk is the type of soil in the city and its surroundings, as well as the influence of global and local anthropogenic factors on its degradation. Sandy-clay soils, which are common in Yakutsk, tend to turn to dust if they dry and bare.
