YOUNG SCIENTIST OF THE INSTITUTE OF GEOLOGY AND GEOPHYSICS RECEIVED A MASTERS DEGREE IN KHARKOV (UKRAINE)


December 25, 2019

An employee of the IGG department of seismology and seismic hazard, the engineer Imran Muradi completed his masters studies in December, 2019 at the National Aerospace University “Kharkiv Aviation Institute” in the specialty “Geoinformational technologies and satellite Earth monitoring”.

The masters thesis of I.Muradi is dedicated to the seismic conditions assessment of the Absheron Peninsula territory using different methods of study of the seismic hazard, of intensity analysis on the base of studies of integrated measurement data, conducted for previous years, and assessment of the territory deformation condition using the Earth space monitoring methods. The head of the IGG Department of seismology and seismic hazard, ScD in Earth Sciences, associate professor Gulam Babayev and the Professor of the Department of Geoinformation Technologies and Space Monitoring of the Earth of the Kharkov Aviation Institute, associate professor, ScD in Technical Sciences Olga Butenko were the scientific supervisors of the masters thesis.

Working on his masters thesis the young scientist obtained a number of results. One of the obtained results is the accumulation graphs of the number of earthquakes, plotted on the base of events grouping in order to study the stationary of seismic processes. The seismic setting change of the studied area was revealed according to the graphs of the energy classes K for earthquakes.

On the base of the 3-D model analysis prepared for the Absheron Peninsula in value of peak ground acceleration, it was established that the peak amplitudes of ground vibrations acceleration calculated with the macroseismic earthquake parameters in the Caspian Sea on November 25, 2000, ranges within 0.05 g (0.5 m/c2) - 0.5 g (5 m/c2).

The members of the commission of the Kharkiv Aviation Institute listened with great interest to I. Muradis thesis.
