Principle research activities:
The aim of my research is to develop my fundamentally new models
and approaches inside physics of the Earth, earthquakes and solar-terrestrial
1. Physics of the Earth. The essentially new model of the "hot"
Earth including the following problems: the Earth and the Solar system
formation, the hot Earth interior order and its thermodynamics. The
geomagnetic field generation and the magnetic poles drift models.
The minimization principle of the gravitational potential employed
in my working out new approaches to the problems of continents dynamics
and the Earth's seismicity.
2. Earthquakes Physics. The sound-radiating cracks ensemble model
accounting for the shock-wave (SW) model of the earthquakes. The model
of the earthquake source to be the radiator of the seismic waves generated
under the shock waves splitting. Model of the heavy soil motions to
mark the shock wave emerge to the Earth's surface. Deep earthquakes
and aftershocks models. Operations with a powerful seismovibrator
serving as a "controllable earthquake" to justify the discovered
effects nature in the context of the proposed model of the earthquakes.
3. Solar-terrestrial physics. The model of the atmospheric electric
field. Experimental studies of the atmospheric electricity qualities
and its relation to the seismic processes. Studies of the unitary
variation of the atmospheric electric field, ionosphere and magnetosphere
to elucidate their interrelations with cosmic rays. Physics of infrasound
oscillation during seismic events, its ultralong propagation and seismo-ionosphere
effects. The Earth's climate and life evolution affected by exposure
to cosmic rays during geomagnetic field reversals and excursions.
