Basic scientific achievements 1. For the first time on the basis data of the multichannel telemetric stations, have been investigated methods of estimation cross-section parameters of waves, studying of a trajectory of cross-section waves points, the analysis of direction changes on different depth and designing of increase efficiency of cross-section waves identification in difficult geological conditions. Executors: (g-m.s.d. G.D.Yetirmishli, Ph.D. g-m.s. I.E.Kazimov.)

2. For the first time on the basis of telemetry stations network, corrections were made in times receipts of P and S waves in the Middle Kura depression and developed velocity model for determination coordinate of earthquake epicenters. Executors: (g-m.s.d. G.D.Yetirmishli, Ph.D. g-m S.E.Kazimova.)

3. For the first time on the basis of an electronic database, has been conducted complex interpretation of parameters in geophysical areas, creation schedules of results, visualisation in a 3D format, creation of models, creation of a software package which allows to define areas of geophysical seismoabnormal effects. Executors: (g-m.s.d. G.D.Yetirmishli, Ph.D. g-m.s. T.B.Asadov.)

4. According to the analysis of geomagnetic field parameters was defined seismogenic zones of earthquakes occurring in the Great Caucasus and Talysh areas and it allows to investigate the scenario of seismic activity development in these regions. Executors: (g-m.s.d. G.D.Yetirmishli, Ph.D. in physic-mathematics A.G.Rzayev.)

5. For the first time by tools methods on the basis seismotelemetric stations, has been registered 3 step of eruption process of a mud volcano in Lokbatan. Executors: (g-m.s.d. G.D.Yetirmishli, Ph.D. on g-m.s. S.E.Kazimova.)

6. On the basis of seismotelemetric stations database information has been created mechanism of the source zones (M ≥2,5) and have been found out characteristics of deformations in seismotectonics in various seismic zones of republic. Executors: (g-m.s.d. G.D.Yetirmishli, Ph.D. on g-m.s S.E.Kazimova.)
