The main scientific achievements in recent years:
Methodological requirements for revaluation of operational reserves of fresh groundwater at existing water intakes in modern conditions of their formation have been developed (Nagevich P.P., Chebotareva O.V.).
The features of oil products seepage through loess and pebble rocks of the aeration zone in the field have been studied. (Abdullaev Sh.Kh., Abdullaev B.D.)
A method of directional electromagnetic sensing (NEMZ) has been developed. (Khamraev D.F.).
The current ecological state of the geological environment was assessed and geoecological maps of 1:1000000 scale were compiled for the Aral and Ferghana regions with the most intense anthropogenic load in the framework of the International Project on Central Eurasia and submitted for publication to the International Atlas of Central Eurasia with the participation of Russia, Kyrgyzstan and China. (Pinkhasov B.I., Pryadudenko T.I.)
The geophysical parameters and indicators characterizing the occurrence and quality of mineral groundwater of Ferghana, Kashkadarya, etc. are estimated. artesian basins based on the principle of typification of structural and tectonic conditions and system analysis in the distribution of parameters of the geophysical field. (Gribanov B.I., Abdullaev Sh.Kh.)
