Federal State Budgetary Institution “Institute of Global Climate and Ecology named after Academician Yu.A. Israel” 

Founder of the institute, director until 2011: Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Professor, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Israel Yuri Antonievich.
The Institute is a state scientific non-profit organization. Further on this site, with a short naming, the institute will be called “IGCE”. The functions and powers of the founder on behalf of the Russian Federation are carried out by the Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring (Roshydromet).

The institution was created by Resolution of the Council of Ministers of the USSR dated May 18, 1989 No. 413 and a joint decision of the State Hydrometeorological Committee of the USSR and the USSR Academy of Sciences dated September 25, 1990 No. 104/141. The institution is the legal successor of the Institute of Global Climate and Ecology of the State Committee for Hydrometeorology of the USSR and the USSR Academy of Sciences, the State Institution Institute of Global Climate and Ecology of the Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring and the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Federal State Budgetary Institution “Institute of Global Climate and Ecology of the Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Monitoring environment and the Russian Academy of Sciences” (FGBU “IGCE Roshydromet and RAS”). Currently, IGKE is an institute subordinate only to Roshydromet. On May 10, 2018, by order of Roshydromet No. 183, the institute was named after Academician Yuri Antonievich Israel and the institution received the name: Federal State Budgetary Institution “Institute of Global Climate and Ecology named after Academician Yu.A. Israel” (FSBI “IGCE”).

The subject of IGCE’s activities is conducting fundamental and applied scientific research, performing work and providing services in the field of hydrometeorology and climatology and related areas, in the field of monitoring the state of the environment, including its pollution. The purpose of this work is to meet the needs of the state, society, legal entities and citizens for information about the state of the climate and the environment, its changes, including:

– anthropogenic impacts on global climate;

– global and regional climate changes caused by anthropogenic and natural causes, their environmental, social and economic consequences, as well as the possibilities of adaptation and climate stabilization;

– environmental pollution, assessment of its consequences and possibilities of prevention.

IGCE employs 2 corresponding members of the Russian Academy of Sciences, 5 doctors of science and 30 candidates of science. Two employees were awarded the honorary title “Honored Scientist of the Russian Federation” and two – “Honored Meteorologist of the Russian Federation”.

For their pedagogical work, three employees were awarded the academic title of “professor”.

The Scientific Council and scientific seminars function at IGCE.

IGCE specialists actively cooperate within the framework of international organizations and programs, in particular within the framework of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the bodies of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UN FCCC), the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the Joint Transport Observation and Assessment Program long-range air pollutants in Europe (EMEP), the International Collaborative Program for Integrated Monitoring of the Impacts of Air Pollution on Ecosystems (ICP IM), and the East Asian Acid Deposition Network (EANET).

The Institute carries out extensive publishing activities, the result of which are information products of Roshydromet, interdepartmental and state reports and other documents in the preparation of which Roshydromet participates, ongoing scientific publications, as well as monographs and articles in periodical scientific journals and other publications.
