The Director of the Institute of Geology and Geophysics, academician Akif Alizadeh, opened the meeting of the Scientific Council and introduced the agenda of the meeting.

Then, ScD in Geology and Mineralogy Musa Mammadov made a report “Crystallization stage of the mineral assemblage of subduction and rift picrites of the Lesser Caucasus and Talysh”.

The report was listened with great interest and was followed by a lively discussion. The scientist said about the distribution of normal alkali picrites within the Bathian-Bajocian volcanites of the Murovdag anticlinorium of the Lok-Garabagh structural-formational zone of the Lesser Caucasus.

The conditions of the subalkaline, alkali and normal alkaline picrites formation of the Santonian volcanogenic-sedimentary and sedimentary complexes of the Gazakh and Khojavend troughs were analyzed.

M.Mammadov determined the location of subalkaline picrites of the Upper Eocene-Early Oligocene in the structures of Astara, Lerik and Burovar of the Talysh zone.
Taking into account the importance of the obtained geological, petrological and metallogenic results, as well as definition of the picrites distribution areas of the Lesser Caucasus and Talysh, think it expedient to continue complex geological and physical-chemical studies of picrites.

Then corresponding member of ANAS Dadash Huseynov informed about the international scientific social networks and about the registration of IGG employees in metrics databases (Web of Science, Scopus, Research Gate, etc.).

PhD Rafiq Safarov informed about the works in the National Information Center (CTBTO); ScD in Geology and Mineralogy Chingiz Gashkai spoke about researches in the field of innovative developments, carried out jointly with the ANAS High Technologies Park.

ScD in Technical Sciences, Professor Mirali Alosmanov also made a report. PhD in Earth Sciences, associate professor Orkhan Abbasov spoke about the activities of the Council of Young Scientists and Specialists of the Institute of Geology and Geophysics. The Head of the department of public relations Shirmammad Nazarli made a report on “Institute of Geology and Geophysics in the mass media”.
