April 14, 2016. The "Report on the state of basic science in the Russian Federation and on the most important scientific achievements of Russian scientists in 2015", approved by the General meeting of RAS members on March 23, 2016, describes as a major achievement in the direction "Physical fields, the internal structure of the Earth and deep geodynamic processes" the “Method of system analysis to detect areas of possible occurrence of epicenters of significant, strong and strongest earthquakes", developed at GC RAS by a group of researchers, including ​​Academician A. Gvishiani, principal research scientist Prof. S. Agayan and senior researcher B. Dzeboev. The method for the first time applies system analysis as a powerful tool to detect areas of possible occurrence of epicenters of strong earthquakes. The team of researchers used the proposed method to detect the areas of possible occurrence of the epicenters of strongest earthquakes (M≥7,75) in the mountain belt of the Andes in South America and significant earthquakes (M≥5) in the Caucasus.

July 11, 2018. Corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, V. A. Petrov, head of the Geoinformatics Laboratory of IGEM RAS, visited GC RAS. The purpose of the visit was to participate in a working meeting in which A. Gvishiani, Director of the Geophysical Center, A. Soloviev, Deputy Director for Science, A. Rybkina, Deputy Director for Development, and researcher A. Odintsova participated.

July 6-10, 2018. Scientists of the Laboratory of Geoinformatics and Geomagnetic Studies D. V. Peregudov and M. N. Dobrovolsky took part in the joint event – the 26th Extended European Cosmic Ray Symposium and 35th Russian Cosmic Ray Conference. The event was held at the Altai State University (Barnaul, Russia).

July 2-4, 2018. Leading engineer of the Laboratory of Geoinformatics and Geomagnetic Studies of GC RAS A. Grudnev visited "Klimovskaya" observatory (Arkhangelsk region, Klimovskaya village). The main goal of the expedition is to carry out routine preventive works aimed at maintaining the working capacity of geomagnetic equipment, including a scalar magnetometer.

July 4, 2018. Two international scientific organizations - the International Council for Science (ICSU) and the International Social Science Council (ISSC) have united in a new union - the International Science Council (ISC). GC RAS represents the interests of Russia in the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG), now part of the ISC. IUGG General Secretary Alik T. Ismail-Zade was elected as the chief secretary of the newly formed Council.
