THE DEFENCE OF PhD DISSERTATION WAS HELD


June 14, 2021

At the scientific seminar of the Dissertation Council ED 1.01 (DC) on the specialty “Geophysics, geophysical methods of mineral exploration”, chaired by academician Parviz Mammadov, the dissertation of senior researcher of the Department of Dynamics of earthquake sources of the Republican Seismic Survey Center of ANAS Shirin Islamova on “Influence of the Mingachevir reservoir on seismic activity of the territory” was discussed.

Sh. Islamova noted the relevance of the issues raised in the dissertation, underlined the results obtained. She noted that an increase in seismic activity caused by anthropogenic activity and the destructive earthquakes in areas with large hydraulic structures requires the seismological monitoring in the Mingachevir reservoir. It is possible to study and predict the dynamics of seismic processes, to define the seismicity and to monitor changes in geophysical fields due to application of geophysical methods.

Then Sh.Islamova answered numerous questions from the DC members. The recommendations were given on the dissertation topic.

At the end of the seminar, after a wide discussion, it was decided to submit the Sh.Islamovas dissertation on “Influence of the Mingachevir reservoir on seismic activity of the territory” for defence to the DC.
