FUNDAMENTAL WORK DEDICATED TO THE GEOLOGICAL STUDY OF AZERBAIJAN WILL BE PUBLISHED

February 21, 2020

The problem of the “Geological exploration of Azerbaijan” research implementation (RW) was discussed at the Scientific Council of the ANAS Institute of Geology and Geophysics. The research implementation will be carried out under the guidance of the IGG Director, academician Akif Alizadeh and ScD in Geology and Mineralogy, Professor Adyl Aliyev. The IGG specialists will be involved to successfully research carrying out.

It should be noted that since the middle of the 19th century the geological science has been developing in Azerbaijan. Over the past years, a large amount of geological researches was conducted; new oil and gas fields, ore and industrial deposits were discovered and studied in detail in Azerbaijan. The results of these studies were collected in the Institute of Geology of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Then a fundamental work has been published (50-volume). The 42nd volume is dedicated to the geology of Azerbaijan. This volume contains geological information about published works and manuscripts published over the past 50 years (until 1970).

Since 1970 and up to now, a major geological research is carrying out in Azerbaijan and a lot of new scientific data has been obtained. Appreciating the necessity to data generalization, it was decided to conduct the research work “Geological exploration of Azerbaijan” (from 1971 to 2020). The research work completion is planned towards the end of 2025.
