Scientific Achievements

Digital Maps

  • 1:100000 and 1:25000 scale digital elevation models for several regions of the RA
  • 1:10000 scale digital elevation model of Yerevan city
  • Digital map and geological maps catalogue for geological survey sections at various scales
  • 1։100000 scale digital map of volcanoes
  • Digital map of historical earthquakes in the RA and surrounding territories
  • 1:50000 scale digital map of hydrography, water resources, and water-economic systems of RA

Surface Models of Geological Variables

  • Surfaces of chemical elements concentrations were constructed, the structure and patterns of the geochemical fields were studied (on the example of Agarak cooper-molybdenum deposit and Geghi river basin).
  • Minerals were modeled and mineralization patterns were studied (on the example of Agarak copper-molybdenum deposit).
  • Digital elevation models were developed: Slope, inclinations (vertical, horizontal, highest, lowest, and average incline) and vertical ruggedness.
Joint distribution of copper and molybdenum concentrations on the example of Agarak copper deposit
