|Chief||Mammadov Musa Nasib oglu
Dr. of geological-mineralogical sciences, professor
|Total number of employees||9|
|Basic activity directions||Petrology of magmatic processes;
Typomorphism and structural conditions, paragenesis of rock-forming minerals;
Geochemical aspects of speciation and behavior of the ore-and rock-forming minerals during magmatic melts evolution.
|Main scientific achievements||The presence of the decompressed mantle was determined as a result of the petrologic-geochemical factors interpretation in Talysh zone and Khojavend trough that was subjected to melting twice.
The absarakite-shoshonite melt (5-7%) was melted from subalkalic garnet-peridotite substrate in Talysh zone. The subalkalic picrite melt (up to 15%) was melted from the same substrate in the second stage.
In Khojavend trough the substrate according to composition corresponds to metasomatized spinel peridotite, from which subalkalic olivine-basalt (5-7 %) was melted during the early stage but teschenite melts (up to 15%) - during the second stage.
