MAIN FIELDS OF RESEARCH



  •  Assessment and forecast of stability of relief, lithogenic bases, and permafrost in connection with the dynamics of cryogenic geosystems at reclaimed areas of the North

  •  Dynamics of the coastal zone of the Arctic seas in natural and man-caused transformed conditions

  •  Effects of ice formations on the coasts and bottom of Arctic seas

  •  Remote methods of geo-environmental monitoring of northern teńhnogeosystems 

  •  History of the development of natural complexes of the North


In these areas, the laboratory performed a number of state contracts, projects, and grants.



APPLIED RESEARCH

 
  • Analysis of land use in the Far North: monitoring of natural hazards, the development of practical recommendations for the prevention of destructive processes, land reclamation

  • Assessment of the state of nature-technical systems in permafrost and remote monitoring based on aerospace data analysis 

  • Creation of feature-rich GIS for specific promising areas of oil and gas development

  • Predicting the dynamics of the Arctic coast and underwater slope deformations in the areas of laying of linear hydraulic structures, subsea pipelines, and communication cables

  • Assessing the impacts of sea ice on the shore and bottom of freezing seas
