Main scientific achievements

-          maps of natural radioactivity of depressed areas of Azerbaijan have been constructed (1 : 200 000);

-          scientific basis for allocation of actively living tectonic structures and discovery of hydrocarbon deposits have been developed;

-          regularities of variation of radioactive fields in connection with seismic, geodynamic processes and technological activity have been determined;

-          correlation and the cyclical nature of changing of radioactive and geochemical parameters in the context of the sedimentary rocks of East Azerbaijan have been established, the nature of increased radioactivity in Middle Jurassic and Maikop measures of Azerbaijan have been studied;

-           the formation model of radioactive fields above the oil fields have been made;

-          scientific basis for the organization of the monitoring of the state of the radiation situation in different regions, cities and other human settlements, as well as in separate buildings have been developed;

-          the map of the natural radioactivity for the Absheron Peninsula on a scale of 1: 200 000 have been constructed (with technogenic anomalies);

-          the radioactivity background maps for different oil and gas producing areas  have been made and isolated areas of technogenic pollution have been marked out; the mechanism of the radionuclide contamination formation have been shown;

-     the cadastre of radon distribution for Azerbaijan territory has been made and the map of radon volume activity has been constructed.
