Nature of the provenance and tectonic setting of oil shale (Middle Eocene) in the Greater Caucasus southeastern plunge

Objective. The protolith and tectonic settings of the Middle Eocene oil shale sampled from the outcrops and ejected products of mud volcanoes in the Greater Caucasus southeastern plunge were determined using bulk rock geochemistry data. The obtained results were adapted to the palaeogeodynamic conditions of the study areas. Method. The concentrations of element content in the samples were measured by “S8 TIGER Series 2 WDXRF” and “Agilent 7700 Series ICP-MS” mass spectrometers.

Impact assessment and tereyniv sutur to modern crustal movements in the Carpatho-Balkans of the GPS-measurements and geological-geophysical data

Velocities of displacements of permanent GPS stations, located in Carpathian and Balkans region are computed. As a result directions and velocities of regional and local geodynamic movements are obtained. The estimation of the influence tereynov and suture to the modern tectonic activitythe earth's crust in the region.

Construction of the geodynamic models of the seismic active regions of the earth (the Neftegorsk earthquake, Sakhalin island)

The constructed model for a deep structure of the lithospere under the Neftegorsk earthquake region shows that North Sakhalin consists of the North Sakhalin sedimentary basin, the Deryugin basin and the ophiolite complex located between them. The ophiolite complex composed of the the ultrabasic rocks, fixes the position of the ancient subduction zone which was active about 100-60 million years ago. On a surface the subduction zone manifests itself as deep faults running along Sakhalin.

Analysis of thermal-elastic geomechanical processes on the base of complex deformational monitoring data

The thesis applies for the original geodynamical investigations of the Transcarpathians territory. New laser-digital techniques of tension and weather-temperature observations on the base of author’s implementations were used. Such techniques  allow to observe and study sub-low geological processes and movements before, during and after earthquakes, create a of tension and weather-temperature data base, make complex analyses and processing of geophysical information.

Structure of the gravitational field of eastern Europe and some issues of regional geodynamics

Based on the studies performed earlier [2, 3, 5], and also the problems solved by regional geodynamics [4], we propose a combined method of studying the latter - the method of processing the accumulated information about the physical fields of specific regions, adequate to the nature of the processes being studied.

Lithosphere heterogeneity of the Dnieper-Donets basin and its geodynamical consequences. II part. Geodynamics interpretation

Aim. Geodynamic interpretation of previously obtained 3D density and magnetic modeling results, and data on consolidated crust fault tectonics of the Dnieper part of Dnieper-Donets basin (DDB) in the light of its formation mechanism.

Pecularities of application of methods of geodynamical prospecting within Ukrainian shield and Transcarpathians

On the examples of various geological situations (Ukrainian Shield and Transcarpathian deep) are shown the efficiency of applying of geophysical method as to searching of tectonics, geodynamics and geological prognosis

Surface and deep Earth dynamics by results of processing of GNSS-measurement and geological-geophysical data (methodological aspect)

A method of comparative GPS-tectonics for study and modeling of surface and deep Earth dynamics by comparing of revealed on the results of GPS-measurements the recent tectonic activity with revealed on geological and geophysical data the paleotectonic reconstructions was proposed. A model of geodynamics of Antarctic lithospheric plate with linkage of deformations to Euler rotation pole was build.

The map of vertical Holocene movements of Volyno-Podillya and Pre-Carpathians

The mapping approach based on revealed property of the geodynamical memory of actual soil cover (Holocene) is realized. Structure and facies of the soil cover are considered as a new information donor about the relief dynamics. The raw of tectogenic evolution of the soil-forming processes and the soil types in the range from subsidences to stable regime and elevations with different intensity is determined. For the Western Volyno-Podillya and Pre-Carpathian foredeep the calibration raw “soil type – total amplitude of vertical movements” is justified.
