SEC “Geodynamics and geoecology of the mineral resources: modelling, prediction and monitoring”

The Geophysical centre RAS (GC RAS) and the Moscow State Mining University (MSMU) founded joint Scientific-educational centre (SEC) “Geodynamics and geoecology of the mineral resources: modelling, prediction and monitoring”. SEC was established under the Agreement on Cooperation between GC RAS and ​​department “Engineering Environmental protection“ of Physics and Technical Faculty of the Moscow State Mining University (hereinafter MSMU).

SEC provides the performance of the joint researches in the following main directions:

  • Working out the new methods of geodynamics classification of territories in the areas where there are radiation-dangerous objects of nuclear fuel cycle;
  • Investigation and modelling of stress strain behaviour (SSB) in choosing the places of radiation-dangerous objects allocation including underground objects;
  • Development of the scientific-training base of the information technologies application for the prediction of the geological environment sustainability based on the SSB models of heterogenous block massive;
  • Investigation of the up-to-date crustal movements based on the application of the Global Navigation Satellite System (GPS/GNSS);

Under the provisions of SEC it is headed by Academician A. D. Gvishiani and its scientific head is doctor of the technical sciences, professor V. N. Morozov.
