DISCUSSION OF THE GENESIS AND PALEOGEOGRAPHY STUDIES OF PRODUCTIVE SERIES WAS HELD


October 25, 2017

 
Institute of Geology and Geophysics of ANAS hosted next republican scientific seminar in the field of earth sciences. New data on the genesis and paleography of the sediments of the Azerbaijan’s productive series (PS) were discussed.

Chaired by the Deputy Director for scientific work of Institute, Doctor in Geology and Mineralogy Dadash Huseynov, the event was opened by Professor of the Azerbaijan State Oil and Industrial University, Doctor in Geology and Mineralogy Chingiz Khalifzadeh. Ch. Khalifzadeh told about the studies and noted the special role of Azerbaijanian and Russian scientists in researches of PS sediments genesis and paleogeography. He noted a need for carrying out complex sedimentological and geophysical researches of genesis and paleography of PS, as well as the development of a common vision.

Ch. Khalifazade told about the results obtained by complex sedimentological studies of paleogeography and genesis of PS over the past 20 years:

1. PS sediments have a transgressive structure. During 2•106 years there were 4 transgressions and one great regression.

2. Compared to previous transgressions, the last transgression had prolonged nature (0.6-0.7 x 106 years). As a result, in the Balakhany-Sabunchu transgression the water volume increased 2-2.5 times.

3. On the territory of Surakhani the transgression of PT was completely completed.

The report aroused great interest on the participants of the seminar and responded questions.
After discussions event was concluded on results of the research.
