The physicist found a way to freeze Yenisei at Krasnoyarsk


The physicist Valentin Danilov offered rather economic way to freeze Yenisei near Krasnoyarsk and to lower humidity in the city, reports online edition "Mira Avenue". Water in Yenisei ceased to freeze after construction of the Krasnoyarsk hydroelectric power station. Water for turbines is taken away from a deep water where it is much warmer in the winter, and then dumped back to the river. In the 80th the offer to construct along a dam from a reservoir a board which will allow to change water intake depth at different times year was stated. Project cost was estimated at one billion rubles. Danilov offered a way which will manage a hundred times the smaller sum. He suggests to fill up the river before the city from snow canons. The thin ice layer will not give to water will evaporate near the city, and below on a current it will thaw. To share: Yenisei Krayasnoyarsk
