SCIENTISTS OF THE INSTITUTE OF GEOLOGY AND GEOPHYSICS OF ANAS DISCUSSED COLLABORATION WITH ITALIAN SCIENTISTS


September 6, 2018

From September 6 to September 11, 2018, research project within the framework of cooperation between ANAS and the Italian National Research Council (NRC) was discussed in the IGG. The collaboration of the ANAS IGG and the Institute of Methodologies for Environmental Analysis (NRC) “Seismic hazard assessment and study of the directional seismic effect in the territory of the Mingachevir reservoir (Azerbaijan)” became the winner in the contest in 2017, announced by ANAS in cooperation with NRC.

The project head managers are corresponding member of ANAS, Academician Fakhraddin Kadyrov and Professor Luciano Telesca. The employees of the Republican Seismic Survey Center of ANAS also participate in this project. The scientists published seven articles in journals impact factor.
Professor Luciano Telesca visited the IGG to discuss researches on the project topic. The aim of this visit was the discussion of the work plan for the first year, as well as the statistical and topological data analysis.

The database consists of earthquakes catalog from 2013 to 2018, M≥2, geophysical monitoring and GPS data located around the Mingachevir reservoir, as well as data on the water change level in the Mingachevir reservoir.

The scientists discussed the seminar plan for young scientists planned to be held in Italy, as well as the results of fractal and spectral analysis data of GPS station located around the Mingachevir station, the time sequence analysis and data interpretation obtained by monitoring of geophysical plots.
