The Centre of Geophysical Monitoring offers consumers of seismic microzoning services under an outsourcing agreement and is looking for partners interested in a distribution services agreement.

Determination of the seismicity of the survey site on the basis of data from the clarification of the initial seismicity (ISS), detailed seismic zoning, taking into account local soil conditions according to engineering and geological surveys, taking into account building codes to select the best options for locating construction objects and quantify the parameters of seismic effects on construction sites required to calculate the seismic resistance of specific buildings and structures.

Center provide:

- methodological management of the processing of geophysical (seismological, geomagnetic, hydrodynamic, etc.) observation data carried out at the Center’s facilities and ensuring the collection and storage of primary material, assessing its quality and developing the necessary recommendations for eliminating deficiencies;

- development and implementation of new methods for processing observation data, monitoring the process of conducting observations;

- study of regional and local seismicity, assessment of the seismic, geomagnetic geodynamic situation on the territory of Belarus, including complete data processing, compilation of consolidated catalogues, tables, bulletins, reviews and construction of relevant maps and diagrams.

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.
