Magomedov R.A. GEOECOLOGICAL VALUE OF BLOCK POTENTIAL EASTERN CAUCASUS IN A DRY CLIMATE // Arid ecosystems. 2021. V. 27. № 3 (88). P. 111-119 | PDF
The geodynamic potential of the blocks of the north-eastern segment of the Eastern Caucasus under the conditions of land ecosystems settling down is estimated and its geoecological significance is shown. Potential waiting areas for possible foci of strong earthquakes that can negatively affect the environmental safety in the region are identified. The conducted research is a continuation of the work on the assessment of the geoecological situation that develops under the influence of potential catastrophic geological processes of a natural nature in the region that is subject to sedimentation and aridization.
Keywords: geodynamic potential, geoecology, safety, seismotectonics, zone of possible earthquake foci, quasi-homogeneous blocks.
