Volcanic eruptions belong to the extreme events that change the Earth’s landscape and affect global climate and environment. Although special attention is given to super-eruptions, the non-explosive rhyolitic (highly viscous) eruptions and large lava flows are no less important. In the paper “3D Numerical Modeling of the Summit Lake Lava Flow, Yellowstone, USA”, published in Izvestiya, Physics of the Solid Earth (Q2; JIF: 0.796), an ancient lava flow in the Summit Lake region, Yellowstone is analyzed. The research conducted by scientists of IEPT RAS, IMM UB RAS, and the Lomonosov Moscow State University was supported by the Russian Science Foundation (project No. 19-17-00027).More“Three-dimensional Numerical Modeling of the Summit Lake Lava Flow, Yellowstone”

In the article, in the form of series in Papkovich–Fadle eigenfunctions, exact solutions to two inhomogeneous boundary value problems of the theory of elasticity for a half-strip with free long sides are constructed: (1) the half-strip end is free, (2) the half-strip end is rigidly clamped. First, a solution to the inhomogeneous problem for an infinite strip is constructed. Then, the corresponding solutions for a half-strip are added to this solution, with the help of which the boundary conditions at the end are satisfied. To solve the inhomogeneous problem in a strip, the Papkovich orthogonality relation is used.More“An exact solution of an inhomogeneous problem for an elastic half-strip”
The paper addresses the problems associated with the maximum earthquakes in a seismically active region. Pisarenko and Rodkin (2009; 2010; 2015) proposed an alternative to the ambiguously determined parameter of the maximum regional magnitude Mmax in the form of a clearly defined and statistically substantiated parameter of the maximum possible magnitude of an earthquake in a given region on a given future time interval T.More“Maximum earthquakesin future time intervals”
Use of mathematical methods, sometimes even quite elementary, in other areas of knowledge often proves to be very efficient. As an example of such use, and, at the same time, an example of cooperation between IEPT RAS and OGRI RAS (Oil and Gas Research Institute RAS), we can point out the results of correlation analysis of the content of trace elements (TE) in oils, coals, black and oil shales, as well as in oil degradation products with the average chemical composition of the upper, middle and lower continental crust and biota.More“Correlations of the trace element composition of oils and other caustobiolites”
