Hello, my name is Gleb, I am 16 years old, I live on the Kola Peninsula. Here, where I grew up, it snows almost all year round. During the Polar nights, the amazing phenomenon of the Northern Lights can be seen. Despite the harsh weather, the people here have incredibly warm hearts. And this why I consider myself as a happy person, because I have a loving family and loyal friends! I am actively engaged in sports such as karate and karting.
I have been participating in research activities since second grade. Here, on Stockholm Junior Water Prize, I am presenting my new research on the practical application of the magnetohydrodynamic effect in tidal currents of the Barents sea.Tell us what the water concern in your country is!
The main concern is size of the country itself. It is very difficult to regulate the protection and usage of water resources in such a large territory. The other problem is the populations ’ lack of awareness about the importance of preservation and rational use of water.This is what I think is one of the solutions for a sustainable future:
I believe we could adhere to the words of Vladimir Vernadsky influential scientist who suggested to turn the biosphere into a noosphere By doing so we would not only aim to develop Biosphere to create a common future but also to change society to create the unity of humanity production
Practical implementation of the magnetohydrodynamic effect in the tidal currents of the Barents Sea: a feasibility study
Utilization of pollution-free and renewable energy sources, including tidal energy was in a focus of the study aimed at assessing feasibility of electricity generation from the kinetic energy of the tidal waves and the kinetic energy of the charged particles (seawater ions) moving in the magnetic field. The developed model generator of the system of acting Kislogubskaya tidal power station in Murmansk region with implementation of MHD channel demonstrated economic viability of solution. A full-scale utilization of Kislogubskaya station would help to redistribute electricity surplus for residential heating purposes and increase the level of environmental safety. The environmental benefit of the proposed solution is associated with CO2 emission reductions (727 t/year), which can bring additional income to the regional budget
