Laboratory of Avalanche and Mudflow Processes Research (SAKHALIN BRANCH)
Head of the Laboratory, Dr. Nikolay A. KAZAKOV
The Laboratory of Avalanche and Mudflow Processes Research studies evolution of nival, avalanche and mudflow complexes in geoecological systems of the Russian Far East, as well as characteristics of related processes and their influence on geoecological systems.
Ivestigations has been carried out include:
- Genesis and dynamics patterns of snow cover, avalanches, mudflows and other exogenous geodynamic processes found in the mid- and low-mountain relief of the Russian Far East.
- physical and mathematical models of nival, avalanche, and mudflow processes and development of methodological principles of avalanche and mudflow processes control;
- avalanches and mudflows hazard assessment and elaboration of measures to protect infrastructure.
