Whether to keep Institute of Seismology?

Currently the company is held to reform science in Kyrgyzstan. Offers a variety of options - from a significant reduction in the number of scientific institutes to their complete destruction of or merger with universities, colleges and vocational schools!

We hope that the reformers understand the specifics of the Institute of Seismology. It is in fact - Seismological Service of the Republic! And its association with some other organizations may lead to a crash! Nobody will take to his organization, employing 235 people, 24 seismic stations located throughout the Republic, and plus 6 hydrodynamic and 5 magnetometric station. Only the state can contain such an organization! The question is whether the state needs such an organization? State within whose territory each year about 6,000 earthquakes?

End State Budget Project (2012-2014 gg.). summing-up

NAS KR finished work on researchState Budget Project on  «"Evaluation of seismic hazard and risk in the territory of the Kyrgyz Republic» (2012-2014 гг.). Register. № 0005689. Sci. hands. DG-mathematical sciences. K.E.Abdrahmatov.

The new data, to assess the seismic hazard of individual regions in the Republic, as well as to evaluate the seismic risk of some cities.

It was found that for large generating seismic zones of the Tien Shan on long-term data in the seismic regime observed stable harmonic components whose parameters allow to predict the likely periods of improving seismic hazard and the expected maximum magnitude earthquakes in Kyrgyzstan

In addition, the obtained interesting materials can reveal features of the deep structure of the bottom of the Issyk-Kul Lake and see the structure of the sediment, including those that may have a seismic origin. These materials have been obtained as a result of joint expeditions with German researchers from Bremen Universiteta.yzstana

Visit of delegation from China

In November 2014 the Institute of Seismology, National Academy of Sciences visited by a delegation from the Earthquake Administration of China. The two sides exchanged views on possible areas of scientific cooperation. Chinese colleagues also visited the National Academy of Sciences and the Kyrgyz Republic, which signed a Memorandum of Intent. The sides expressed hope that the joint research in the field of seismic hazard assessment and prediction of earthquakes will be fruitful.
