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)




September 11, 2017. Director of GC RAS Academician Alexey Gvishiani was elected a member of the European Academy ("Academia Europaea") in the section EARTH & COSMIC SCIENCES.

September 6, 2017. A press conference was held at the Central House of Journalists at a regular meeting in the frame of "Scientific Wednesdays" with the presentation "System Analysis of Earth Data for Reducing Natural and Technogenic Disasters" by Director of the Geophysical Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences Academician Alexey Dzhermenovich Gvishiani. The head of GC RAS spoke about the work of the institute, importance of geomagnetic studies and their practical application, international cooperation with foreign research institutes and forthcoming elections at the Russian Academy of Sciences. During the meeting, the GC RAS scientists presented a digital innovative spherical screen. At the end of the presentation, Director of GC RAS gave an interview to the journalists.

August 23, 2017. Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Deputy Director for Science of the Geophysical Center A. Soloviev was appointed Delegate of RAS to the International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy (IAGA), replacing Director of the Geophysical Center Academician A. Gvishiani. At the same time, A. Gvishiani remains the national representative in the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG), which includes IAGA.

July 3, 2017. School of Young Scientists "Methods for the integrated assessment of seismic hazard" has opened at the Shmidt Institute of Physics of the Earth (IPE RAS). The School was organized by GC RAS within the framework of the Russian Science Foundation (RNF) project No. 15-17-30020 "Application of system analysis for seismic hazard assessment in Russian regions".
