International activities

The laboratory carries out joint research work with scientists seismologists Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and China.

International projects

  1. Speed and elastic properties of the medium in the focal zones of strong earthquakes (1998-2001, project ISTC).
  2. Active faults and strong movement of the Tien Shan (2000-2003, project ISTC).
  3. Three-dimensional velocity model of the lithosphere of the Tien Shan in connection with geodynamics and seismic danger (2003-2005, project ISTC).
  4. Establishment of the Central Asia Seismic Risk Initiative (2006-2008, ISTC foundation).

During the existence of the laboratory it published 15 monographs and collections, more than 250 articl
