Theme I. Inventory, stratigraphy and conservation of mires and peatlands
Examinations of water balance were carried out on the territory of mire within the area of small waterlogged basin of river Klyuch in the north-eastern part of the Vasyugan bog. The determination of annual precipitation, snow cover water equivalent, evaporation amount and discharge were conducted separately for every dominant type of the raised bog biogeocenoses, and the monthly water balance model was used. As a result of this research it was noted that differences in the water balance of biogeocoenoses are defined by the vegetation structure, which defines the process of moisture accumulation in the bog peat deposit.
