1986 - 1988. The research on a large gold deposit in Chukotka peninsula. In a result some 3D melted zones in permafrost section up to depth 100 m were mapped. These zones over gold mines have great danger and the knowledge of their exact position is very important for the success of mining work.

Bilibino.gif1988 - 1989. Engineeniring studies around a nuclear power station near town Bilibino at the far NorthEast of Russia. The aim of work was in mapping of fracture zones and melted zones among permafrost rocks beneath the river. Our recommendation were accepted by the power station authorities for the management of new project of the NPS development.

1988 - 1993. Mapping low-amplitude tectonics in East Donbass region. We investigated about 15 cites, planned for construction of industrial and residential objects. Working technology became a part of instruction for geophysical work in this region, prepared in the institute UkrVNIMI. Practical buildings arrangement was executed with allowance of our results.

1991. The geophysical work for archaeology in Hersoness historical and archaeological museum (Sevastopol, Crimean peninsula). We mapped large area of agricultural territory of the ancient Hersoness in the region of bays: Kamishovaja and Omega.

1993. Geophysical field work in winter period on the pipeline between Nignij Novgorod and Rjazan II in heavy karst region. In the result of work the recommendations were given about changes in a pipeline trace to avoid dangerous places.

1994. The winter researches on the site Volodarskoje (Moscow region), polluted by a thick layer (up to 3 m) of chicken dropping. In the result the recommendations for recultivation of the area and accommodation of tanks under petroleum were developed.

1994. The field studies at Moscow oil refining factory in Kapotnja. The purpose consist in improvement of technology of geophysical studies of petroleum pollution. Several geophysical methods were tested. The most effective was an induced polarization method.

1994 - 1997. Geophysical studies around oil refining factories in Samara region with a purpose of estimattion of oil pollution and search for hydrocarbons' secondary deposits. Great importance of paleovalleys in spreading of oil pollution on large distance(3-7 km) was established in this region.

1995. Complex geological-geophysical researches on waste deposit in Kaluga. The work was conducted in two different periods, in January and September 1995. The strong pollution of waterbearing horizons under waste deposit body is revealed. It is shown, that except body of a waste deposit a source of pollution is also Poligonnij stream, following from body of waste deposit.

1995. A technology of electrical soundings without galvanic contacts of measuring lines with the ground was tested.
