On April 17, 2017, the Center for the common use of scientific equipment "Complex geodynamic studies" (CCU CGS) was established on the basis of Research Station RAS in Bishkek city. The center was established to integrate research teams and organizations of the Russian Federation, near and far abroad, for the purpose of multiple use of RS RAS scientific equipment for solving problems in the field of Earth’s sciences. In its activity, the CCU CGS is guided by Regulations for the Center for Common Use of Scientific Equipment RS RAS. Alexandr Matix – the Head of Group of New Technologies Introduction – was appointed as a Director of CCU CGS.

Results of the functioning of CCU of IGR in 2020

The Center for Collective Use "Integrated Geodynamic Research" (CCU IGR) on the basis of the RS RAS was created on April 2017.

Center for Collective Use of IGR conducts researches in the field of seismology, space geodesy, magneto-telluric sounding. Appropriate equipment is available for these studies. The telemetry system for the collection and processing of seismic data KNET operates in real time. There is a network of 10 permanent GPS stations, including 2 stations of the International GNSS Service (IGS) international network. Data is collecting via Internet channels, radio modems, telephone modems. Geophysical surveys are being carried out on the territory of the Central Asian GPS network. The base organization carries out precision GPS, linear angle and leveling measurements.

The Center for Collective Use of IGR offers access to the database of the magneto-telluric sounding, to seismological databases, to a continuous stream of seismological data in real time, to raw GPS data in real time, to daily raw GPS data, to data of long-term GPS measurements in Central Asia and Kazakhstan.

The Center for Collective Use of the IGR participates in the activities monitoring, reflecting its results on the http://ckp-rf.ru/auth/ website in accordance with the instructions of the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia. There are 628 registered centers for various purposes in Russia now. Annual competition for users and CCU support money is fierce.

    On 2020, in contrast to previous years, more scientific articles with a high level of indexers (Web of Science and Scopus) were published: 18 scientific works based on the use of the equipment of the Center for Collective Use of IGR. The greater activity in publications was shown by N.A. Sycheva (7), L.G. Sverdlik (6), E.A. Bataleva (5). 4 publications have each of K.S. Nepeina, S.A. Imashev and V.N. Sychev.

Our base organization has extensive experience in collaborating with other organizations. The Russian Research Institute of Economics, Politics and Law in the scientific and technical field, which analyzes the activities of the Center for Collective Use of the Russian Federation, strongly recommends to increase the external user organizations number, including non-regional and foreign ones.

On 2020 year the CCU IGR had 3 external users. Data of KNET was transmitted to the Ministry of Defense Special Control Service of the Russian Federation, Dubna city and the Institute for Seismology of the National Academy of Sciences of the Kyrgyz Republic. GPS data was transmitted to the University NAVSTAR Consortium (UNAVCO), Boulder.

Free of charge interaction (exchange of geophysical data, etc.) should also be reflected in the activities of the Center for Collective Use. More attention needs to be paid to finding third-party users without payment and preferably on a reimbursable basis on 2021. They can find the request of the subsurface magneto-telluric researches laboratory and GPS laboratories measurement results databases.

Modernization of equipment for geophysical surveys is desirable: in order to increase the reliability and pollutions of measurements new Trimble Alloy receivers with modern interfaces is desirable to install at permanent GPS stations.
