GC RAS

The Geophysical Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences (GC RAS) was established in 1992 with a status of research institute in accordance with the decision of the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences as a result of the reorganization of the Interdepartmental Geophysical Committee (IGC) of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR established in 1958 by the Decree of the USSR Council of Ministers.

GC RAS today is:

Highly qualified and young team of scientists of international class: two members of the Russian Academy of Sciences, 10 Doctors of Sciences and 17 Candidates of Sciences (PhD). More than one third of employees is younger than 35. The Center has at its disposal a high-speed Internet access node (2 Gbit/Sec), two powerful multiprocessor computer clusters, professional videoconferencing system, digital demonstration complex with a spherical screen, equipment for studying the geodynamics of the Earth’s crust, mobile complex for carrying out magnetic survey in low and high latitudes, magnetic observatories, original software products protected by copyright certificates and licenses.

GC RAS participates in the technological platform “Technologies of Ecological Development”, coordinated by the Russian Geographic Society. GC RAS is the regular participant of the All-Russia Science Festival.

The main goal of the Geophysical Center is to conduct basic and applied research in the field of geophysics and geoinformatics.

Research lines and major tasks:

  • development of theoretical and algorithmic framework of recognition;
  • fundamental and applied research in geophysics and geoinformatics, artificial intelligence methods, system analysis, intellectual geoinformation systems and their geological/geophysical and medical/ecological applications;
  • carrying out field-based geophysical surveys, including magnetic and geodetic surveys;
  • study of the Earth’s magnetic field, deployment of the Russian system of magnetic observatories of the highest international quality standards;
  • study of modern crustal movements and simulation of the stress-strain state for the purposes of geoecology, geodynamics and natural risk assessment;
  • creation of new methods of geophysical data and knowledge visualization on the basis of spherical screens and development of advanced learning technologies;
  • development of new methods of electronic publications.

Anatoly Soloviev, Deputy Director for Science of GC RAS, spoke about the results of the final stage of the project "Development of innovative technology and creation of experimental sample of hardware-software complex for monitoring extreme geomagnetic phenomena using terrestrial and satellite data" carried out under the agreement No. 14.607.21.0058 of September 22, 2014. The meeting participants decided to accept the obtained results.

April 12, 2017. The XXIV International Scientific Conference "Lomonosov-2017" was held at the Lomonosov Moscow State University. Engineer of the Laboratory of Geoinformatics and Geomagnetic Studies of GC RAS A. G. Smirnov made a report "Analysis of global models of the Earth's main magnetic field" in the section "Geology". The presentation aroused great interest among the students and members of the program committee. A.G. Smirnov was awarded a diploma of the competition of scientific works of the Geological Faculty of Moscow State University among students, graduate students and young scientists.

March 31, 2017. For many years of conscientious work, significant progress in professional activities, great personal contribution to the development of scientific and technical cooperation, Dr.Sc. Vladislav Nikolaevich Morozov and Dr.Sc., Head of Geodynamics laboratory Viktor Nikolaevich Tatarinov were awarded with the insignia of the State Atomic Energy Corporation "Rosatom": "For contribution to the development of the nuclear industry". We congratulate the award winners!
