Moscow University Geology Bulletin
Moscow Univ Geol Bull
The Faculty of Geology at Moscow State University is the largest educational and scientific geological center in Russia and its Bulletin publishes articles on research being conducted by some of Russia's most prominent geologists. The journal covers all areas of the Former Soviet Union, all geological disciplines and all periods of the Earth's history. The main subjects covered are: Dynamic geology, Geology and geochemistry of mineral and fuel resources, Lithology and marine geology, Petrology and mineralogy, Crystallography and crystallochemistry, Hydrogeology, Engineering and ecological geology, Geocryology, Neotectonics, fault tectonics and movements, Geophysical exploration methods. Special attention has been given lately to research in geocryology, geological environmental protection, evolutionary petrology, marine geology and nonlinear petroleum-gas geology. Members of the faculty have created a number of well-known schools such as the school of structural crystallography, the school developing the petroleum-gas basins concept, the school developing quantitative models of geological processes leading to the formation of hard mineral deposits and the school of problems of the Earth's evolution.
