The school of young scientists "System analysis and evaluation of seismic hazard"

Venue: Lomonosov Moscow State University, Moscow, 12-15 July 2016. The school is organized in the framework of the Russian Science Foundation (RSF) project № 15-17-30020 "Application of the system analysis to assess the seismic hazard in the regions of Russia, including the Caucasus, the Crimea and the Altai-Sayany-Baikal" with the support of the Committee on Data for Science and Technology of the international Council for Science (ICSU CODATA).

The main theme of the School relates to the developed in recent years new methods of seismic hazard assessment and integration of obtained results on the basis of system analysis methods. Examples of seismic hazard assessment will be given for specific seismically active regions. The lecturers of the School are leading scientists - representatives of the Geophysical Center RAS (GC RAS), Mechanics and Mathematics Faculty of Moscow State University, ICSU CODATA, the Schmidt Institute of Physics of the Earth, Russian Academy of Sciences, the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (Laxenburg, Austria), the Institute of Earth Physics of Paris (France), the Institute of Earthquake Prediction Theory and Mathematical Geophysics, Russian Academy of Sciences (IEPT RAS), University of Trieste (Italy) and other scientific institutions. The lectures will focus on the following topics:

  • use of artificial intelligence methods for the prediction of the possible locations of strong earthquakes;
  • morphostructural zoning and its use for predicting the possible places of occurrence of strong earthquakes;
  • seismic hazard assessment on the basis of the General Law of similarity for earthquakes, summarizing the fundamental relation — the Gutenberg-Richter law;
  • systematic algorithmic approach to seismic hazard assessment;
  • modeling of block systems dynamics and faults and seismic activity;
  • related matters of advanced data management and systems analysis.

Along with lectures, during each working day two hours will be devoted to direct scientific discussions between participants and lecturers of the School. It will provide participants with the opportunity to penetrate deeply into the use of methods of seismic hazard assessment as well as to discuss their research and scientific projects.

Program Committee Co-Chairs:

  • Professor Vladimir Chubarikov (acting Dean of Mechanics and Mathematics Faculty of Moscow State University)
  • Corresponding Member of RAS Dr. Alexander Soloviev (IEPT RAS, GC RAS)

Organizing Committee Chair:

  • Dr. Alena Rybkina (GC RAS)




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.
