Giant Siberian swamp cooler is a global atmospheric scientists from Tomsk, Novosibirsk, Barnaul, Moscow, Krasnoyarsk, Ulan-Ude, gathered for a conference on climate and environmental monitoring systems in Siberia, to discuss scientific and technological basis for monitoring and modeling climatic processes the Greater Vasyuganskoye swamp.

The area of the Big Vasyuganskoye swamp more than 55 thousand square meters. km, which is about 2% of the total area of peat bogs around the world.
