The annual report on the results of the IGG scientific and organizational activities for 2021t was presented in the joint meeting of the ANAS Division of Earth sciences and the Scientific Council of the ANAS Institute of Geology and Geophysics.

Academician Akper Feyzullayev informed of the results obtained. The spatial heterogeneity was determined based on the comprehensive studies of the physical and isotope-geochemical properties and thermobaric conditions of fluid systems and rocks of the accretionary prism of the South Caspian basin.

For the first time the “Atlas of natural resources of Karabakh” was prepared and published. The Atlas was compiled by collaboration of the scientists of the IGG, the Institute of Geography, the Institute of Botany, the Institute of Zoology, the Institute of Soil Science and Agrochemistry, the Republican Seismic Survey Center, as well as specialists of the National Geological Exploration Service of the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Azerbaijan. The Atlas includes a number of maps devoted to geology and minerals, seismicity, relief and geomorphology, climate and agro-climatic conditions, ground and surface waters, soils and soil resources, vegetation cover, fauna and landscapes of the mountainous and lowland regions of Karabakh. The Atlas also contains geographical maps of administrative districts. The scientific supervisor of the Atlas is the corresponding member of ANAS Talyat Kengerli.

Then, a report on the most important scientific results of the Laboratory of oil geochemistry for 2021 was presented (academician Ibrahim Guliyev, Doctor of physical-mathematical sciences Galina Martynova, senior researcher Olga Maksakova, senior researcher Rakhilya Nanajanova and Ph.D. in geology and mineralogy Arzu Javadova). The fluido generation has been proved in super-deep bedding of oil-and-gas source rocks (over 13 km) on the base of identification of the structure of adamantane hydrocarbons of the adenomatoid system in the oils of the South Caspian depression.
