- The results of mapping of soil degradation processes in the water protection zone of the Ivan’kovskoe water reservoir are discussed. This work was based on the materials of the multispectral aerial survey of the territory and field studies. Soil areas subjected to degradation processes, such as bogging, wind and water erosion, mechanical destruction, and technogenic disturbances were identified, and the degree of their degradation was determined. This information made it possible to suggest a system of rehabilitation measures aimed at improving the ecological situation. These measures include the creation of shelterbelts on slopes and along the ravines and the construction of earth walls, bush dams, and silt catchers to clean the surface water and soils from biogenic pollutants.
