Regional Science Conference with international participation “Primitive archaeology of the Russian Far East and adjacent regions of East Asia: contemporary condition and perspectives of the development” went off November 18 – 20, 2013, at the conference hall of the Institute of History, Archaeology and Ethnography of the Peoples of the Far East FEB RAS.

Two researchers of Far East Geological Institute FEB RAS, Dr. V.K. Popov and Dr. E.A. Nozdrachev, took part at the conference. At the section “The methods of natural sciences in primitive archaeology of the Far East” they presented their report “The use of X-ray microprobe and X-ray fluorescence analyzes for solving geoarchaeological problems (by studies of obsidian and precious metals from archaeological sites of Primorye)”, prepared in collaboration with archaeologists Dr. N.A.Kluyev and I.Y.Sleptsov. The meeting also heard reports of researchers from different institutes of the FEB RAS -  Dr. V.A. Rakov, Dr. E.A. Bessonova, and O.A. Elovskaya, Pacific Oceanological Institute, Dr. V.E. Panasenko, Institute of Biology and Soil Science, and others.

Final roundtable meeting has noted the importance of participation of various specialists: geologists, volcanologists, geographers, physicists and chemists in geoarchaeological studies. It was highlighted that in the increased globalization of science, many scientific problems could be solved only in case of interdisciplinary studies requiring application of different areas of knowledge.

On January 29 th , Far East Geological Institute FEB RAS received short get-to-know visit of foreign delegation consisting of participants  of the 21st Annual Meeting of the APPF having been held in Vladivostok, on the Russian Island. The guests
represented science foundations of their countries in Asia-Pacific region: Taiwan, the Philippines, the Republic of Korea, Mongolia, and Indonesia, so the visit could matter very much to the Institute because it has not got any long-term treaties or projects (at the interacademy agreement level) with no one of these countries.

On the XV glaciological Symposium "Modern variability of the Earth Cryosphere" (4-7 June 2012, Arkhangelsk Сity)

June  4-7, 2012,  in Arkhangelsk  was held the XV Glaciological Symposium "Modern variability of the Earth cryosphere" chaired by Academician Kotlyakov V.M. (the official site of the symposium
http://glac2012.igras.ru). The organizers of the symposium were glaciological association with the Institute of Geography RAS and the Northern (Arctic) Federal University. The  symposium was attended by over than 100 scientists and experts from almost 50 organizations of Russia, Germany, Switzerland, China, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. During  the symposium were considered issues on various aspects of glaciology (snow cover and glaciers of Arctic, avalanches and mud flows, river and sea ice, ground ice and frazil, mountain glaciers, Antarctic Research). 
Seven  employees of the avalanche and mudflow processes laboratory of Sakhalin  branch FEGI FEB RAS took part in the symposium. They presented five verbal and four poster reports devoted to the research of snow cover and  avalanches in the Sakhalin region.
