Geo-environment and its resources in conditions of climate change and anthropogenic pressure

The main themes:

– Formation and evolution of deep geological structures and posibilities of their alternative use; analysis of changes in the paleoenvironment in different periods of the geological past, and impact assessment of natural and anthropogenic factors on their evolution, present-day trends in dynamics of aquatic and terrestrial geosystems.

– Composition of subsurface traditional and non-traditional, mineral and geoenergy resources, their localization and prediction of potential resources occurrence in particular geosystems; impact assessment of anthropogenic pressure and climate change on the formation of surface and subsurface hydrosphere resources and their quality;

– Natural and anthropogenic pollution of surface and subsurface water resources and its prevention; development of landscape and resource planning and management adhering to principles of sustainable development.
