The Centre of Geophysical Monitoring offers consumers services to inform the public about the geophysical situation under an outsourcing agreement and is looking for partners interested in a distribution services agreement.
To prepare information about the geophysical situation, the Center’s employees take part in the development of plans for organizing geophysical observations, scientific, technological and experimental work, carry out engineering control over the continuous round-the-clock operation of equipment used in geophysical observations, develop and implement software and hardware tools for processing, storage and transmission of geophysical information. They also provide administrative support and system maintenance of the Center’s website, ensuring the operability of the local network and access to the Internet.

Information about the geophysical situation contains analysis and justification of the feasibility of using various scientific, technical and methodological approaches in relation to the creation and operation of geophysical monitoring systems of various scales aimed at their optimization, including:

- carrying out engineering and geophysical surveys at the locations of particularly critical facilities (nuclear power plants, high-altitude tasks, hydraulic structures, etc.);

- interpretation and analysis of shallow geophysics data (solving direct and inverse geophysics problems) during engineering surveys;

- installation and use of modern software products, preparation of user instructions;

- application of GIS technologies for constructing maps and diagrams of study areas of various scales;

- participation in the implementation of individual tasks implemented by the Center within the framework of government programs, international projects and direct business agreements with third-party organizations;

- participation in the development of regulatory documents and improvement of geophysical research methods, scientific support for local and regional seismological monitoring;

- participation in scientific and technical events (conferences, seminars, meetings and other events) held in the Republic of Belarus and abroad;

- participation in the development of plans for organizing geophysical observations, scientific, technological and experimental work and preparation of reports on the work done.

Additional comments
The main goal of the Centre of Geophysical Monitoring is to carry out special work on geophysical monitoring of dangerous geodynamic phenomena and processes - seismic events of artificial and natural origin, variations in the Earth's geomagnetic field and other parameters associated with these processes. The operating mode of the observation units of the Center is continuous round-the-clock observations.

Center tasks:
1. Organization of a geophysical service based on continuous round-the-clock observations and the appropriate procedure for processing, analyzing and transmitting data (urgent reports, operational summary, ten-day, monthly, quarterly and annual summary bulletins, catalogs, analytical reviews and reports);

2. Scheduled transfer of the results of processing geophysical information to the Commission for Emergency Situations of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, organizations of the Ministry for Emergency Situations of the Republic of Belarus, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection of the Republic of Belarus, executive authorities; if necessary, operational interaction with them in the event of the occurrence of dangerous geodynamic processes and phenomena;

3. Organization of banks of geophysical data, provision of interregional and international exchange of information;

4. Regular preparation of information (updating the Center's website, messages, articles, interviews, responses to requests) on seismic and geomagnetic conditions for the public, the press, radio and television, and other interested organizations and departments.

Main activities:
1. Organization and development of the national system of geophysical monitoring on the territory of the Republic of Belarus, participation in the Interstate system of geophysical monitoring of European countries and CIS countries, the International Global Earth Monitoring Network;

2. Ensuring continuous round-the-clock monitoring of global, regional and local seismicity; assessment of the seismic situation and the degree of danger of seismic impacts;

3. Providing continuous stationary observations of the parameters of the Earth's magnetic field, assessing the geomagnetic situation and the degree of danger during magnetic storms;

4. Ensuring interregional and international exchange of information with the Geophysical Service of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the European Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC), the International Seismological Center (ISC), the International Geomagnetism Data Center (WDC), geophysical organizations of neighboring and other countries; The Centre of Geophysical Monitoring of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus is a full member of EMSC, ISC, WDS and operates in accordance with international obligations; representatives of the Center are authorized users of the CTBTO International Data Center (CTBTO is a UN organization established to implement the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty. The Treaty was prepared at the Conference on Disarmament in Geneva and then approved by the UN General Assembly on September 10, 1996. It was opened for signature September 24, 1996 at the UN headquarters in New York.To date, the Treaty has been signed by 175 countries and ratified by 120);

5. Organization of local seismological monitoring in active geodynamic zones;

6. Performance of engineering and geophysical works, assessment of seismic hazard and seismic impacts, including in the design, construction and operation of unique industrial and civil facilities (NPPs, hydraulic structures, high-rise buildings, etc.);

7. Development and development of methods and means of geophysical observations, information and computer technologies;

8. Obtaining new information on the basis of geophysical observations for their use in scientific research.
