In several projects we work on active faulting around the Caspian Sea, in the Tien Shan, and in Mongolia.
We use a wide range of techniques to investigate the earthquake record and to understand the behaviour of faults and fault systems: seismology, GPS, InSAR, remote sensing, earthquake geology, paleoseismoloy, tectonic geomorphology, Quaternary dating, archaeology, and historical sources.
NATO-funded project “Earthquake Hazard and Environmental Security in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan”
Currently we are concentrating our efforts in the NATO-funded project SPS G5690 – “Earthquake Hazard and Environmental Security in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan” in the framework of the Science for Peace and Security (SPS) Programme. This project will run for three years (2020 – 2023) and is aimed at a better understanding of the active faults in the area and the hazard they pose for people and infrastructure.
