Laboratory of Paleozoic stratigraphy

Head of Laboratory,
Doctor of Science
Artiushkova Olga Viktorovna

The laboratory is engaged in research in the stratigraphy of Paleozoic terrigenous-carbonate and volcanic-sedimentary deposits of the Southern Urals and the east of the Russian Platform. The dismemberment of sediments is based on a biostratigraphic method using orthostratigraphic groups of fauna: conodonts and chitinozoans. An independent group within the Laboratory is engaged in a detailed lithogeochemical study of the dated Devonian volcanic-sedimentary formations of the eastern slope of the Southern Urals.

The direction of research:
1. Development of regional stratigraphy and correlation schemes for sediments of the Lower-Middle Paleozoic of the Southern Urals.
2. Study of stratigraphic accessory and biodiversity of Ordovician, Silurian and Devonian conodonts and chitinozoans in the sections of different structural-facies zones of the Southern Urals.
3. Lithological study of volcanic-terrigenious complexes of the Devonian on the Eastern slope of the Southern Urals, elucidation of sedimentation features, paleogeographic reconstructions.
