Spatial modelling of the Arctic metapolis: Yakutsk


The process of metropolisation of Yakutsk is one of the most unique geographic phenomena. Since the end of the Soviet Union, the city of 193000 inhabitants growing fastly to cross in 2021 up to 33000 people covering today almost 1 million square kilometres in the extreme Arctic environment and climate. The population of the Yakutsk metropolis developed strategies of adaptation we are going to analyse. Scenarios of possible transformations of the metropolis including the impacts of global warming have been developed at different scales and temporalities (Landsat Series, Sentinel 2, DMSP, and VIIRS) based on machine learning and deep learning processing.
