Egor Aleksandrovich Zelenin

Egor Aleksandrovich Zelenin. Lab of Neotectonics and Recent Geodynamics, GIN RAS Head of the Laboratory and senior researcher at Geological Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences, Ph.D.

Research interests: active faulting, tephrochronology, paleoseismology, geomorphology, GIS, spatial databases, remote sensing, UAV-based photogrammetry.

Research areas: Kamchatka Peninsula, NW Pacific; Caucasus and the Armenian Highland.

My research is focused on paleoseismicity, spatial and temporal interaction of active tectonics and volcanism and based on remote sensing techniques, tephrochronology and age modeling.

In addition to regional tectonic studies, I contribute to design and population of geoscience databases, which make accessible the most relevant published data on:
- Holocene volcanism of Kamchatka and
- Active faults of Eurasia,
partially missed by scientific community as original data either published in Russian and have never been translated or exist in few hardcopies.
