October-November 2017

In the course of magnetotelluric observations conducted at “Kentor” profiles since 2012, the GMT group conducted MT soundings (MTS) at 33 sites of “Centralnyi” (С1 - С11) and “Vostochnyi” (Е1 - Е22) profiles from October 17 – November 3, 2017.

The MTS test record to monitor the noise level was conducted at C8 site. Works were preceded by calibration of recorders and sensors. For estimation of noise level and parameter settings, test recording was conducted at all observation sites. Magnetic field components were measured using МТС-50 induction sensors. Electric components of MT-field were measured by measuring equipment with 50-meter electric dipoles. The dipoles were earthed using nonpolarizable electrodes by the “electrode to electrode” principle with previous observations at all sounding sites. Orientations of measuring equipment completely reproduced the previous deployments. Duration of MT-field registration at each observation site was 15-16 hours. Works were complicated by adverse weather conditions.02

On 08 December 2017 the regular meeting of the RS RAS Academic Board took place.

The issues of agenda were as following:

1. The most important results of 2017 in the framework of State task execution.

2. Approval of the Plan of Research Work for 2018-2020


As a result of the voting on the first question was approved by two of the most important results obtained in the course of research themes elaboration: "Study of modern movements of the Earth's crust in Central Asia, using the tools of space geodesy" (No. 0155-2014-0002) and "Development of hardware and software and basics of the technology of electromagnetic monitoring of geodynamic processes in seismically active zones and the assessment of their risks" (No. 0155-2014-0004).

On the second issue, the discussion of RS RAS Plan of research work for 2018-2020 took place. For each of the four themes included in State Task, the content of works planned for execution in 2018-2020, as well as anticipated results for the period were determined.

KNET seismic network is operating on a full scale.

            Two high-mountain KNET network stations have been restored on November 17, 2017. The helicopter MИ8-MTВ delivered employees and equipment to stations. Staff of RS RAS laboratories and technical divisions: GNTI, LAHD, LDMS, GHM - Alexander Matiх, Ruslan Dudinskih, Oleg Lashin, Maksim Lisimov, Oleg Nelin, Yuri Yurkov were involved in works on stations repair.

New steel pole with a solar panel and antenna was installed; battery, solar controller, solar panel and data recorder were replaced at Kyzart station. Executed works at 3520m altitude had been complicated by sub-zero temperature and strong wind.

All interconnections were checked at Uchtor station, as well as battery and solar controller. STS-2 seismic sensor was adjusted. Work at 3850м altitude had been complicated by negative temperature and deep snow. All staff members showed high professionalism in course of repair works. Additionally, high cost of helicopter flight hour required fast and quality execution of repair works.

Unfortunately, high-mountain Kyzart station has been subjected to vandalism by residents of nearby villages not for first time. The station is located on the mountain range between Kochkor and Suusamyr valleys. Stockyards are situated near station location in summer. Flocks of sheep reach the station location some days. There are also horse pathways. There can be strong winds across the range in north-east direction due to temperature difference between two valleys.

Presumably, the locals took steel ropes for household needs. Steel pole would be blown down by wind, fell to ground, what led to solar panel and antenna breakage, and, as a result, seismic data transfer interruption in this case. Station repair costs are very significant.

In order to ensure smooth operation of station it was decided to ask District or Republican Ministry of Internal Affairs interpret laws to residents of nearby villages before 2018 summer season to prevent stations damage.

With a view to winter period approach, which makes difficult the access to geophysical stations, the GNTI conducts preventive works to increase the stations operation reliability. At two GPS stations (KAZA and SEL2) new gel batteries of СГГН 100-12 type, produced in St. Petersburg, have been installed. Unfortunately, by contrast with previous years, the supplies with batteries of this kind in Bishkek have greatly decreased. Accumulators of AGM type (Sznajder 6CT) proved to be unreliable in operation. Because of self-discharge at the energy supply absence, they get out of order irrevocable. Gel batteries are much better in this respect.

In August of this year, the power supply system at the OSHK station (Osh city, Kyrgyzstan) on Soulaiman-Too Mount was upgraded. On completion of the project of Universities of Montana and Colorado states in 2008-2011 under the grant of National Aeronautics and Space Administration Subaward 5710002361, "Activities of the GPS network in Kyrgyzstan, maintained by the Research Station of the Russian Academy of Science in Bishkek (RS RAS), the GPS station was kindly left in Kyrgyzstan at the disposal of RS RAS staff to continue the space geodesy research.


The OSHK station is important for the accuracy of GPS data processing, as the most remote stationary one in the south-west direction. In early November 2017 this station is functioning with normal hardware parameters.

In September – October 2017 the LAHD staff conducted the field trials of new improved model of measuring complex (Electrical survey complex with broadband signal) .
The trials showed a significant improvement in the performance of new set of equipment compared to previous model. At this time, the field testing of upgraded magnetometers POS-1 in conjunction with previously developed and produced by LAHD Autonomous geomagnetic data recording units was conducted.
