BELOGLAZOV MIKHAIL IVANOVICH
He's been employed at the Polar geophysical institute KSC RAS since 1968: engineer, senior engineer, junior researcher, and head of the laboratory (1983), senior researcher (1988). Ph.D. (Eng.) ("Study of radio communication features at superlong waves in polar and near-polar regions", 1979). A member of the Scientific Council of the Polar geophysical institute, a member of the General Meeting of Scientists KSC RAS. A specialist in radio physics, high-frequency propagation, ecology, physics and chemistry of atmosphere, atmospheric ozone. He studied the influence of high-latitude geophysical factors on high-frequency propagation at a frequency less than 30 kHz in a spherical waveguide, produced by the Earth and lower ionosphere. He also studied the potential for waveguide superlong radio-waves propagation capabilities for investigation of lower ionosphere (height less than 60-80 km).
Beginning from 1991-92 he's been researching the behavior of small gas constituents, ozone and nitrogen oxide in particular, in high-latitude atmosphere. On his initiative the laboratory of the Arctic atmosphere was established within the Polar geophysical institute. It became the first scientific subdivision in the Russian Arctic, which deals in a wide range of atmospheric measurements: meteo-parameters, surface ozone concentration, total ozone, high-latitude distribution of ozone and nitrogen dioxide, ultraviolet radiation of the Sun, and spectroscopy of small gas constituents by optical sounding of the surface layer, atmospheric electricity, and acoustic-gravitational waves.
Under his leadership a regional network for surface ozone monitoring was created on the Kola Peninsula, which included stations in Apatity, its suburbs, near Lovozero settlement, in the Khibiny mountain massif (Lovchor mountain, height - 1089m), and also on the Spitsbergen archipelago near Barentsburg.
The data received in the laboratory were repeatedly included into the range of the main achievements of RAS of various years. In 2003, in particular, the empirical dependence of surface ozone from free convection level in lower troposphere was found out. These data provide explanation for the mechanism of surface ozone changes, characteristic for different seasons, time and various synoptical objects (area of atmospheric fronts, periphery of baric formations, anti-cyclone areas, etc.) and provide reliability of forecasting the anthropogenic pollution of high-latitude atmosphere.
He is and author and co-author of over 200 scientific publications, including 3 monographs and about 90 articles.
