Professor Stepanov was studying the SEL for the past 45 years. And, in his opinion, the heat wave could hardly be the cause of recent landslide in Almaty.
“To believe that the cause of the landslide was a heat wave, I can’t. Mudflows, associated with temperatures, right only twice in the last 40 years. During those 42 years there have been many occasions when the heat was the same as now, or worse, but anything related to heat occurred. Occurred breakthroughs, even when it was over the summer, and the autumn came”, – said Boris Stepanov.

It’s an amazing city, worthy of the beautiful nature and sparkling clean waters. It is clear that the environmental initiative should be continued and expanded. In 2011 we took the decision to create a whole movement of “Clean lakes”.
