Main scientific achievements
The electronic database of the mud volcanoes of Gobustan had been created using GIS technology and ArcMap application, including the set of parameters such as morphology, eruption parameters, fluid manifestation, absolute and relative heights, etc.

The maps of the spatial distribution of the mud volcanoes of Gobustan had been created in GIS environment using ArcMap application;

3D models of some mud volcanoes of Gobustan as well as the adjacent territories had been created within GIS environment;

On the base of geologic-geophysical and seismic data the conceptual model of inner structure of mud volcano had been proposed with definition of some gas-mud chambers;

Following the example of Shikhzarli mud volcano the flame discharge had been calculated on the base of geologic-geophysical, geochemical data and mathematical simulation using SigmaFlow software as well as the volume of gas burnt during the eruption had been given.
