The next online meeting of the Scientific Council was held in the ANAS Institute of Geology and Geophysics. The meeting was chaired by the IGG director, academician Akif Alizadeh. First the participants pay a minutes tribute of silence to the memory of the IGG scientists who died during the pandemic - academician Arif Ismail-zadeh, Doctor of geological and mineralogical sciences Chingiz Kashkay and Doctor of geological and mineralogical sciences, professor Manija Isayeva.
Then A. Alizadeh congratulated Doctor of geological and mineralogical sciences, Professor Adil Aliyev, corresponding member of ANAS Elmira Aliyeva and Doctor of geological and mineralogical sciences, Professor Musa Mammadov on the anniversary, highly appreciated their contribution to science.
Then academician A. Alizadeh introduced the agenda to the participants.
The corresponding member of ANAS Talat Kengerli informed about the implementation of work on “Detection of crustal blocks of the Eastern Caucasus and surrounding regions based on tectonic and paleomagnetic data and reconstruction of their horizontal movements in the Paleozoic and Mesozoic (2018-2020)”.
