GIS-based modeling of modern tectonics and alpine evolution of the east-caucasus/south caspian geodynamic system


The aim of the project was the creation of a comprehensive and reliable picture of the structure of the geological environment and alpine evolution of the project region; based on the latest geosystematic approaches to their reconstruction.

The project goals were to compile models of the geological environment; geo-dynamic reconstruction of events in the alpine tectonic-magmatic cycle; analysis of correlation and dependence between modern geodynamic and exogenous processes; tectonic analysis; and forecasting of local hydrocarbon potential.

The project region covers the territories of the Azerbaijan Republic, its national sector of the Caspian Sea and relevant features of neighboring countries (taking into account the region’s complex geological structure).

The following outcomes, based on critical analysis and summarization of geology-geophysical data, were produced as a result of the project’s implementation:

  • Summary and interpretation of geology-geophysical data on the territory of Azerbaijan; conducted field studies of selected objects; final data was presented in the form of a computer database.
  • Production of geology-geophysical data analysis and summary; and compared these results to existing geological maps; allowing the production of geological environmental models.
  • Geology-geophysical data analysis and models were used as databases for space-time reconstruction of the project region’s tectonic-sedimental evolution processes: resulting in palinspatic schemes grouped by phases and stages of alpine tectogenesis.

All project outcomes of the analysis and summary of data on tectonic and lithofacial conditions of the formation of mineral deposits (solid minerals and hydrocarbons) were presented on a 1:1000000 scale forecast-minerogenic map of Azerbaijan, on a geodynamic basis.

This tectonic map of Azerbaijan and adjoining territories will be used as an integral part of a different tectonic map of the Caucasus, jointly developed by Swiss, Russian, Azerbaijani, Georgian and Armenian specialists within the framework of a SCOPES-funded (Switzerland) inter national project.

Seismotectonic maps of the Azerbaijani part of the Greater Caucasus will be used by the GeoEcological Monitoring Center of the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources and the Republic’s Center of Seismic Services (Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences).

Taking into consideration interest expressed by different state authorities; private companies; research and education institutions, the 1:500000 scale tectonic map of Azerbaijan and its adjoining territories will be prepared for mass publication at Baku Cartographic Factory.
