On October 13, 2017, the next meeting of the Scientific Council of the Institute of Geology and Geophysics of ANAS was held. Deputy director in science, corresponding member of ANAS Dadash Huseynov opened a meeting.

The meeting began with congratulation of Academician Arif Ismayilzade, Ph.D. in geology and mineralogy Novruz Novruzov and Professor Zakir Abdullayev on their 80th birthday, corresponding member of ANAS Chingiz Aliyev and Ph.D. in geology Nagy Nagiyev on their 70th birthday, chief accountant of the Institute Elmira Askerova and the Head of the library Rena Veliyeva with 60th jubilees.

Then D. Huseynov acquainted the seminar participants with the meeting review. Head of the Department of engineering geophysics, Ph.D. in geology Avaz Salmanov opened the meeting with a report "Modelling of exogenous geological processes of lake surrounding territories by electrical prospecting methods".

Avaz Salmanov told about conducted geophysical studies, where the method of vertical electrical sounding (VES) of electrical prospecting of the lake surrounding territories for study of geological processes (deposits, landslides, erosions, pseudocarsts, etc.) was used for the first time.

As a result of studies the new measuring installation was made and measurement was carried out on four profiles in all sections.

Geophysical studies were carried out within the framework of the project grant of the Science Development Fund under the President of the Azerbaijan Republic.
2D models of lithological structures, modern exogenous geological processes and their development were compiled during geophysical studies to a depth of 40metres of the coastal zones of the Masazyr and Mohammed lakes.

The report aroused much interest, the reporter answered numerous questions. Then the report was adopted by the resolution of the Scientific Council.
Then the scientific-organizational problems and their implementation were discussed.

Head of the geosciences section of ANAS, Head of the department of geodynamics and seismology, Academician Fakhraddin Kadirov told about international laboratory, created jointly with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; about the progress of research programs performance and also about carried out team research works with the Institute of Physics of the Earth of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

Academician Hatam Kuliyev, Head of the department of tectonophysics and geomechanics, informed about the results of the international congress "Interdisciplinary geomechanical problems". Ph.D. Abdulvahab Mukhtarov told about the participation of the Institute’s scientists at the international event, held in Germany.

At the end of the meeting the personnel matters, questions about Master’s degree programme admission for the 2017/2018 school year were discussed, the decisions of the Attestation Commission of graduate students were affirmed.
