Estimating the trends of remote pollution of the atmosphere when planning spatial development of Russia

The calculations of the atmospheric pollution index introduced earlier by the authors, which characterizes the features of the dynamics of long-range pollution of the economic regions of the Russian Federation, in 1980-2050 taking into account climate change, have been performed. The calculation results show general trends towards an increase in the meridional (southern) influx of pollutants into the regions of Russia in the considered period. The estimates obtained are important for proposals for ensuring the environmental safety of the regions in the strategic planning of the spatial development of the Russian Federation
