January 22, 2019. TV channel "Russia1", program "Utro Rossii" showed a story about the study of the modern geomagnetic situation in our country. Acting director of Geophysical Center RAS A. A. Soloviev and other researchers of Geophysical Center RAS took part in the program.

Anatoly Alexandrovich Soloviev said that many people associate the acceleration of the North magnetic pole with the impending period of inversion, when the poles - North and South - switch places. In the history of the Earth, this has already happened several times; by geological standards, the process of changing poles is almost instantaneous — it takes only several millennia. So scientists have time to make predictions, what threatens humanity with this event.

Olga Olegovna Samokhina, Researcher at the Laboratory for Innovation Projects of GC RAS, demonstrated a multimedia projection complex with a spherical screen - one of the most important developments of GC RAS. This device allows you to see the processes and phenomena occurring on our planet in real time, and also to visualize any information necessary for research.

Recently, American scientists recorded another shift of the North magnetic pole towards Siberia. An invited expert at "Utro Rossii" – Dr. Sc. Andrei Nikolaevich Lyakhov, Head of the Electrodynamic Processes Laboratory of the Institute of Dynamics of Geospheres, RAS commented on this issue.

July 12, 2019. Within the framework of the XXVII General Assembly of the IUGG, the second meeting of the IUGG Council was held, at which the reports of the presidents of eight associations were presented.

July 10, 2019. the 27th IUGG General Assembly’s opening ceremony took place in the Montreal Congress Palace. The ceremony marked the 100th anniversary of IUGG. The ceremony was attended by the IUGG leadership and the local organizing committee of the Assembly, as well as representatives of the Canadian authorities.

June 28-July 03, 2019. An expedition of researchers of GC ras to the area of the Lower Kansky granitoid massif (Zheleznogorsk, Krasnoyarsk Territory) took place to conduct geodynamic observations. The field work was carried out as part of the RSF project No. 18-17-00241 “Study of the sustainability of rock masses based on system analysis of geodynamic processes for geo-environmentally safe underground isolation of radioactive waste” in collaboration with the Institute for Safe Development of Nuclear Energy of RAS and with technical support from the Zheleznogorsky branch of FSUE NO RAO.

July 01, 2019. According to the results of the 2019 competition for grants from the Russian Science Foundation (RSF) for the event “Conducting Initiative Research by Young Scientists” of the Presidential Program of Research Projects Implemented by Leading Scientists, the project “System Analysis of the Effects of Astronomical Cyclicality on Paratethys Deposition Sedimentation” was supported. Project Manager is Deputy Director of GC RAS for Development A. I. Rybkina. Responsible project implementers - Professor, Head of the Department "Oil and Gas Sedimentology and Marine Geology" of MSU Yu. V. Rostovtseva, Head of the Laboratory of Geophysical Data, GC RAS B. Dzeboev , M.Sc., Laboratory of Innovation Projects, GC RAS Yu. I. Nikolova.
