Diplomas

Diploma of geologist, Geological department of Moscow State University, 1975 (chief Prof. V.Belousov).

Research activity:

-
Linear folding formation research (main, since 1975). Folded structures into inner part of fold-thrust belt are studying. The folded deposit cover consists of flysh-like thin layering and numerous small folds. Several hierarchic levels of folded objects are determined and the especial methods of study are used for research of structures on each level. The main considerations are an estimation of shortening value of different scales structures and a comparison of geometry properties for natural and model objects for detection of folding mechanisms.

-
Mechanisms of mountains building processes (since 2000). Comparison between the results of two kind of shortening measuring methods for the Earth crust (model of thickening of crust due to shortening and geological-geometrical measurement of peneplain surface deformation due to shortening) allow to split the mountain building process in Tian-Shan to two its kind. There are 1) thickening of crust due to shortening and 2) underplating. The amounts of these mechanisms were found as equal for Tian-Shan. Other process of mountains building was shown as part of alpine development of Greater Caucasus. The thickness of eroded part of sedimentary cover was calculated for near 70 blocks of North-Western Caucasus and South-Eastern Caucasus. These values of thickness have relation to neotectonic uplifting of these blocks.

-
Seismotectonics (since 1988) The analysis of block seismicity of the North Caucasus shows some regularity in properties of size of block, period of maximal earthquake occurring and value of maximal earthquake. Participations in geological observations of Racha earthquake, Georgia (1991) and Shicotan earthquake, Kuril islands (1994). The location of Racha earthquake close to subvertical mantle-deep fault zone was shown (2011).
