RESEARCH PROGRAM ON ASSESSMENT OF GEOLOGICAL HAZARD IN THE OCCUPIED TERRITORIES WAS PREPARED
January 28, 2021
The Institute of Geology and Geophysics (IGG) has developed a research program on “Detection of underground war communications by geophysical methods and the geological hazard assessment on the territory of Karabakh”.
The search problem of underground cavities, caves and tunnels was studied back in the 30-50s of the XX century. In recent years, the term “tunnel wars” has become a serious threat between war-torn countries.
According to IGG specialists, most of the existing geophysical and aerospace methods can be used to search and detect underground cavities. Based on geophysical and aerospace data, it is necessary to compile a map of underground tunnels and warehouses created by the Armenian army in Karabakh.
Thats why it was decided to use modern aerospace and geophysical research methods - gravimetric, magnetic, electrical, seismic and radiation, as well as to use the capabilities of the Azerbaijani Azersky satellite to identify underground structures.
