According to him, the state of Lysyi and Davydov glaciers is sad. There were 165 glaciers on Ak-Shyrak massif with a total area of 436 km. The air temperature constantly rises. For 70 years it has grown by 1 degree. The amount of precipitation decreased. Statistics show that the ice melts more than the fallout of precipitation. The area of glaciers reduced by 12.5 percent.
He added that Lysyi glacier is partially covered by ore masses. There was technogenic impact on it. Scientists came to the conclusion that most of the aeolian dust in the ambient air near Kumtor comes from outside, and only a small part of it comes from blasting operations.
