Welcome to the Web Site of the Russian National Committee for International Geoscience Programme (IGCP)!

The Site contains brief information on the Programme and its Scientific Board, on the Committee and its composition, on the IGCP projects and their scientific aspects as well as on the meetings within IGCP projects in Russia.

The Site aides in learning more about the Programme through "links" with websites of the IGCP, UNESCO, International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS), Journal "Episodes", Initiative "Planet Earth", the IGCP projects and RAS institutes as well as IUGS Events Calendar.

We are looking forward to your cooperation!


28.01.2013  REPORT submitted by Y.D. Zakharov (Far East Geological Institute of Far East Division RAS) on IGCP Project 572 “Restoration of marine ecosystems following the Permian-Triassic mass extinction: Lessons for the present” for 2012 >>>


Dear Colleagues,

On February 20-21, 2012, the IGCP Scientific Board held in Paris their annual meeting which discussed newly submitted proposals and ongoing projects of the International Geoscience Program (IGCP) co-funded by IUGS-UNESCO.

It is my great pleasure to inform you that our project “Continental construction of the Altaids (Central Asian Orogenic Belt) compared to actualistic examples from the Western Pacific”, short title “Continental construction in Central Asia” was approved for funding as one of the few new IGCP projects. We would like to congratulate you on behalf of the team that organised our IGCP proposal and wish to thank everybody for help, participation, kind support and encouragement.

with best regards,
Inna Safonova, Reimar Seltmann, Min Sun
