About the Center

The state institution «Center for Geophysical Monitoring of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus» was established in 2001 in accordance with the decree of the Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus No. 50 dated May 3, 2001.

The main purpose of the activity 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 accompanying these processes. The mode of operation of the Center’s observation units is continuous round-the-clock observations.
