April 29, 2016. Geomagnetic Observatory "St. Petersburg" (international code-IAGA SPG) has become a part of INTERMAGNET. "St. Petersburg" became the tenth full-scale observatory of the Russian Federation. It carries out the registration of data on the Earth's magnetic field, of the highest international quality standard to date.

The development of the global INTERMAGNET network in Russia is carried out under the supervision of Academician Alexei Dzhermenovich Gvishiani Director of GC RAS. The observatory modernization was initiated in 2010. The work was carried out by the GC RAS Laboratory of geoinformatics and geomagnetic studies headed by Doctor of science, professor of RAS Anatoly Alexandrovich Soloviev. The operation and development of the observatory is provided jointly by GC RAS and the St. Petersburg branch of the Pushkov Institute of Terrestrial Magnetism, Ionosphere and Radio Wave Propagation of RAS (IZMIRAN). Thus the oldest series of magnetic field observations, started in St. Petersburg in 1834, were renewed.

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.
