Main scientific achievements
Dissected the Paleo-Mezo-Cenozoic magmatism manifestation, established their petrofund, petrogenesis and plate tectonic plates in geodynamic evolution of the folded area. Recognized the regularities of magmatism interrelation with tectonics; first on the Caucasus – the caldera of volcano-tectonic origin, which change to ore-magmatic systems due to granitoid magmatism manifestation. For the first time on the Lesser Caucasus the Eocene volcano-plutonic association was established in evolution trend of Paleogene magmatism. Proposed a new presentation of tectonic position and structure of Zangezur, Talysh, Garabagh in the Lesser Caucasian-Albors system and established submerged ophiolitic suture of Zangezur and its extension between Iranian Karadagh and Talysh. Being the founder-pioneer of regional geodynamic studies in the Republic, composed the evolution models of Paleo-Meso- and NeoThethys in Phanerozoic history of Persian-Caucasian segment of NW trending. Established the meridional rifting with Cretaceous volcanism in the South-Caspian region and proposed a new presentation of formation of the molasse megabasin and its consolidated crust during collision stage, and also about hydrocarbon origin due to deep-seated thermal-mass flow and crust resurgation.
