The equipment of the complex will be used to demonstrate the dynamic processes occurring on Earth and on other planets of the solar system. In the future, jointly with NSU, the researchers plan to replenish scientific data libraries. Integration of the most modern models describing slow geological processes, including paleoreconstructions, will be carried out. In addition, they intend to create a sensory modification of spherical display with the ability to control the image.
"Bulletin of Earth Sciences Branch of RAS" will cover the event in detail. The publication will mark the beginning of a series of articles devoted to the geological museums of Russia.
