Paper Abstract

The assessment problems of the environmental impact of atmosphere pollution caused by gas burning in torches on forest-swamp ecosystems of West Siberia are considered. Geoinformation approach to the assessment of oil production impact based on the combination of sanitary-hygienic and landscape-geochemical approaches is reported. A pilot territory where main natural complexes are swamps of different types, coniferous-leaf-bearing forests and pine forests is described. The areas of polluted landscapes depending on the volume of oil production and normalized pollution levels are determined. The results may be applied for assessment of environmental impact of oil production within other territories with a similar landscape structure.
