Department of oil and gas sedimentology and marine geology

The department annually trains from 60 to 70 undergraduates in the specializations «Lithology» and «Marine Geology», as well as graduates in two programmes. The fundamental course «Lithology» is read for students of all geological specialties at the Faculty of Geology and at two departments of the Faculty of Geography. In addition, the professors of the Department read 22 special courses, including «Facies and paleogeography», «Sedimentary geological formations», «Stadial analysis of lithogenesis», «Genetic mineralogy of sedimentary formations», «Geochemistry of sedimentary process», «Sedimentary deposits of oil and gas basins: genetic analysis», «Factors of marine sedimentation», «Marine geology», «Seismic stratigraphy of the World Ocean», and others. Apart from Russian students, undergraduates and post-graduates from China study at the department. We organize practical research training programmes in lithology (in Crimea and Tatarstan), as well as in marine geology (on the Black, White and Baltic Seas). The department members have published 48 textbooks and monographs, including the three-volume «Lithology» (V.T. Frolov, 1992-1995), one-volume «Lithology» (O.Yapaskurt, 2008, 2016), «Stadial analysis of lithogenesis» (O.V. Yapaskurt, 1995; O.V. Yapaskurt, E.V. Karpova, 2016), «Science of Geology: philosophical analysis» (V.T. Frolov, 2004), «Genetic mineralogy and stadial analysis of the processes of sedimentary rock- and ore-formation» (O.V. Yapaskurt, 2008), «Studying the sedimentary rocks for building medium- and small-scale geologic maps of the new generation» (O.V. Yapaskurt et al., 1998), «Physical and chemical methods for studying the sedimentary rocks» (I.I. Plyusnina), «Introduction to Oceanology» (P.N. Kuprin, 2014), «Genetic analysis of sedimentary deposits in oil and gas basins» (N.A. Solovyova, T.A. Shardanova, 2015), «Pre-metamorphic changes of sedimentary rocks in the stratosphere» (O.V. Yapaskurt, 2016), etc. The department is actively engaged in solving scientific problems of fundamental and applied nature. This research is aimed at studying the evolution of the types of sedimentary process, the regularities of sedimentogenesis and lithogenesis on the continental blocks of the earth’s crust and in the waters of the World Ocean. A significant achievement of the department is the implementation of special methodology for deciphering genetic information encased in sedimentary sequences. This is done by combining detailed lithologic-facial and stadial analyses of sedimento- and lithogenesis for sedimentary basins of various ages - from the Late Precambrian to the present day.
