Basic activity directions   Conditions and cycling of accumulation for recent and ancient terrigenous sedimentary systems;

Sequence-chemostratigraphy;

Stratigraphic architecture of sedimentary series;

Climate, sea level change and sedimentation;

Paleogeography of the Caspian area in MesoCenozoic;

Geochemical and biogeochemical reactions on change of environment.

Main scientific achievements  A unique detailed section of Productive series of Kirmaky valley is made, this section reflects sedimentation conditions for these deposits.

Formation conditions of Productive Series deposits are studied in details and Paleogeographic zoning of the South Caspian basin in Pliocene is carried out.

Mechanism of sedimentary series formation in closed basins are revealed due to their fluctuation levels regime.

Probable existence of hydrocarbons thick reservoirs in the central deep-sunk part of South Caspian is studied.

Paleogeography of South Caspian Depression Western flank in Eocene-Pliocene is studied on data related to mud volcanoes ejections.

Bionomic conditions of Plio-Pleistocene basin of Paleo Caspian are revealed on faunistic and geochemical data.

The recent cycle of Caspian Sea level fluctuations and its role is revealed in formation of stratigraphic architecture of Kura river delta and accumulation of organic matter in delta sediments.
