April 1, 2019. Principal research scientists of GC RAS, Dr. Sc. Vladimir Kaftan was awarded the commemorative medal "100 years of the establishment of the Higher Geodesic Service" for his great personal contribution to the formation and development of the field of geodesy and cartography, for active work on the promotion and implementation of scientific and technical achievements.

On March 15, 1919, the Council of People's Commissars of the RSFSR issued the Decree “On the Establishment of the Higher Geodesic Service” at the Scientific and Technical Department of the Supreme Council of the RSFSR, signed by V.I. Lenin. The formation of the geodesic-cartographic sector of the national economy begins on this historic date. One of the main tasks was the unification and coordination of the "geodetic activity of all the commissariats and institutions of the Republic”.

June 28-July 03, 2019. An expedition of researchers of GC ras to the area of the Lower Kansky granitoid massif (Zheleznogorsk, Krasnoyarsk Territory) took place to conduct geodynamic observations. The field work was carried out as part of the RSF project No. 18-17-00241 “Study of the sustainability of rock masses based on system analysis of geodynamic processes for geo-environmentally safe underground isolation of radioactive waste” in collaboration with the Institute for Safe Development of Nuclear Energy of RAS and with technical support from the Zheleznogorsky branch of FSUE NO RAO.

July 01, 2019. According to the results of the 2019 competition for grants from the Russian Science Foundation (RSF) for the event “Conducting Initiative Research by Young Scientists” of the Presidential Program of Research Projects Implemented by Leading Scientists, the project “System Analysis of the Effects of Astronomical Cyclicality on Paratethys Deposition Sedimentation” was supported. Project Manager is Deputy Director of GC RAS for Development A. I. Rybkina. Responsible project implementers - Professor, Head of the Department "Oil and Gas Sedimentology and Marine Geology" of MSU Yu. V. Rostovtseva, Head of the Laboratory of Geophysical Data, GC RAS B. Dzeboev , M.Sc., Laboratory of Innovation Projects, GC RAS Yu. I. Nikolova.

June 27, 2019. The application “Interactive GIS of multi-criteria seismic hazard assessment” was launched on the basis of the GC RAS geoportal, the main developer of which was Junior Researcher of the Laboratory of Innovation Projects Yu. I. Nikolova.

June 26, 2019. Chief Researcher of GC RAS Dr. Sc. Sergey Agayan and Leading Researcher Shamil Bogoutdinov met with the head of the Chair of geophysics of the geological department of the Moscow State University professor A.A. Bulychev to discuss the current state and prospects of cooperation between the Moscow State University and GC RAS.
