Geological Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences
  • Mission

Origin, evolution, deep structure and tectonics of the earth's Early Precambrian crust

  • Purposes

Comparative analysis of subduction and collision systems in Phanerozoe and Precambrian;
Estimate of use the principle of actualism for the study of Precambrian processes

  • Problems
  • Comparative analysis of subduction and collision systems in Phanerozoe and Precambrian.
  • Tectonic position of granitoids in the collision zones
  • Model building of the synorogenic collaps of the collision systems (magmatic and metamorphic mingling
  • Archean ophiolite and Archean eclogite - detailed study
  • Deep structure and evolution of the Paleoproterozoic orogens inside the the Supercontinents and along its edges
  • Origin, evolution, deep structure and metallogeny of the Early Precambrian crust of Baltic craton
  • Forming and evolution of the diamond lithospheric keel of Siberian craton
  • Origin and evolution of the Early Precambrian continental crust - development of global model
  • The Comparative Planetology: planets and star accretion of matter.
  • Chronology of the accretion and differentiation processes at planet of Earth's group.
  • The Hadean Eon of Precambrian Time
  • Objects

Archean and Paleoproterozoic objects:
Baltic craton and craton's cristallin basement (Baltic shield, Voronezh body)
Anabar shield of Siberian craton
Phanerozoic folded belt:
