Basic scientific achievements

1. The connection between the formation of mud volcanoes with the processes occurring in the implementation of the Cenozoic molasse troughs and the role of oil and gas producing rocks of the Paleogene- Miocene in the manifestation of mud volcanism.

2. Developed geochemical methods of searches of deep oil and gas deposits in areas of mud and mapping method of extinct underwater mud volcanoes rooted on exploration areas.

3. Determination relationship between the activation of mud volcanoes and seismic activity.

4. The regularities of the spatial distribution of mud volcanoes in Azerbaijan related to late orogenic phases of the Alpine orogeny was established.
