LABORATORY OF GENERAL GEOCRYOLOGY

LCP-photo1LCP-photo2LCP-photo3


The main goals of Laboratory’s research is to further understanding of the structure, development history, genesis, age and dynamics of permafrost in north-eastern Asia and to investigate its effects on the lithosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere and technosphere. Areas of research include:

  • Study of cryogenic features and processes in the natural and disturbed areas of permafrost
  • Study of the patterns and evolution of cryogenic processes in the coastal and offshore areas of the Laptev and East-Siberian seas
  • Monitoring of frost-related features and processes in the communities of central Yakutia
  • Investigation of geomorphic processes in the plains, plateaus and mountains of the Middle-Taiga zone
  • Paleoenvironmental reconstruction and climato-stratigraphic study of permafrost histories during the Neogene, Quaternary and Holocene
