A correlation is observed between changes in the level of Earth’s seismic activity and increments of the atmospheric methane concentration over the past 40 years.

MoreA joint analysis of seismicity in the Baikal Rift Zone (BRZ) is carried out using modern instrumental data (Baikal Branch of the Federal Research Center “Geophysical Survey of the Russian Academy of Sciences,” 1963–2021) combined together with historical and paleoseismological data on earthquakes.

MoreThis paper presents a new revolutionary theory of Academician Leopold Isaevich Lobkovsky on the impact of strong subduction earthquakes on the Earth’s climate and the catastrophic collapse of ice shelves as a trigger effect. A seismogenic-trigger mechanism is proposed for the activation of methane emission on the Arctic shelf in the late 1970s, which caused the onset of a sharp climate warming in the Arctic, as well as the intensive collapse of the ice sheet ice shelves of West Antarctica in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, accompanied by the release of methane from the underlying hydrate-bearing sedimentary rocks and the rapid climate warming in Antarctica.

MoreThe *Geophysical Journal International* published an article by Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences G. Molchan and his Italian colleagues, devoted to the theoretical analysis of the productivity of seismic events. The productivity of a magnitude *m* event can be characterized in term of triggered events of magnitude above *m* – Δ: it is the number of direct ‘descendants’ νΔ and the number of all ‘descendants’ VΔ. There is evidence in favour of the discrete exponential distribution for both νΔ and VΔ with a dominant initial magnitude *m* (the case of aftershock cluster). We consider the general Epidemic Type Aftershock Sequence model adapted to any distribution of νΔ. Our first result shows that models with branching aftershock structure do not allow for the coincidence of distribution types of νΔ and VΔ (say, the discrete exponential, as in the scientific literature). The second problem is related to the tail behaviour of the VΔ distribution. We show the fundamental difference in tail behaviour of the VΔ – distributions for general-type clusters and clusters with a dominant initial magnitude: the tail is heavy in the former case and light in the latter. The real data demonstrate the possibilities of this kind.

MoreThe paper titled “Phaseless inverse scattering with background information” was published in “Inverse Problems” (Q1 WoS) journal. Doctor of Physical and Mathematical sciences, Senior Researcher of IEPT RAS Novikov R.G. is one of coauthors.

The work deals with phaseless inverse scattering for the multidimensional Schrödinger equation with unknown potential *v* using the method of known background scatterers.

In particular, in dimension *d* ⩾ 2, the authors show that |*f*_{1}|^{2} at high energies uniquely determines *v* via explicit formulas, where *f*_{1} is the scattering amplitude for *v* + *w*_{1}, where *w*_{1} is an *a priori* known nonzero background scatterer, under the condition that supp *v* and supp *w*_{1} are sufficiently disjoint.
