Dear Colleagues,

You are cordially invited to participate in the regular International Conference and School "Problems of Geocosmos" which will be held in St. Petersburg during October 3-7, 2016.

If you plan to participate in the conference, please send us before March 15, 2016 via e-mail problems.of.geocosmos@gmail.com the preliminary title of your talk with your name and institution (later both the title and the list of authors may be changed for abstract online submission). We need such preliminary information to prepare an application for conference support from Russian Foundation for Basic Research.

The online registration and abstract submission will be opened soon at registration page. Abstract submission deadline is July 15, 2016.

If you need visa, please contact us before April 15, 2016, because we should start the process of preparing invitation letters rather early.

The following sections will be organized during the conference

Section EG. Exploration Geophysics and Earth Conductivity
  • Exploration geophysics
  • Conductivity of the crust and upper mantle
  • Electrical properties of the rocks
  • Electromagnetic soundings
Conveners - Prof. V.N. Troyan, Prof. B.M. Kashtan, Dr. S.S. Krylov, Dr. N.Y.Bobrov

Section P. Paleomagnetism and Rock Magnetism
  • Paleomagnetic reconstructions
  • Paleointensity
  • Rock Magnetism as Physical Basis of Paleomagnetism
Conveners - Dr. A.A. Kosterov, Dr. E.S. Sergienko

Section S. Seismology
  • Theory of seismic wave propagation
  • Earth's structure from seismic data
  • Global and regional seismicity and earthquakes sources
  • Methods for seismic data processing
Conveners - Prof. T.B. Yanovskaya, Prof. V.N. Troyan

Section STP. Solar-Terrestrial physics
  • Space climate and space weather
  • Magnetospheric phenomena
Conveners - Dr. A.A. Samsonov, Prof. V.S. Semenov, Prof. V.A. Sergeev, Dr. N.A. Tsyganenko

Section SEMP. Seismic-electromagnetic phenomena
  • Satellite and ground observations (in different frequency ranges) of electromagnetic anomalies, possibly related to earthquakes (EQ) and other natural hazards (NH)
  • Extraction of the EQ-NH precursory signatures from electromagnetic time series - development of mathematical methods of data processing
  • Modeling of seismic-electromagnetic processes
  • Theory of the EQ-NH precursors

Conveners - Dr. N.A. Smirnova, Prof. M. Hayakawa, Prof. Yu.A. Kopytenko, Prof. A.A.Namgaladze


Conference will be organized at the Institute of Physics, University of St.Petersburg in Peterhof (35 km from St. Petersburg).

Official Language of the Conference is English.

One half-day sightseeing tour will be arranged for the Conference participants and accompanying persons. The details are being discussed; please let us know if you have any suggestions - your wishes will have the decisive role.
