The research paper focuses on the environmental problem of Yamal region, geographically located in the Russian Yamal-Nenets autonomous region, northern-central Russia. This region is characterized by the unique nature and environmental conditions, combining two physical-geographical regions: sub- Arctic and Arctic moss-lichen tundra and permafrost conditions. The recent changes in global climate and overall warming highly contribute to the degradation of the tundra environment and increases cryogenic slope processes. This paper focuses on the investigation of the ecological aspects of the global climate change in Yamal peninsula, and analysis the development of slope processes on the local tundra environment.
