Scientific work of the leading scientist, his/her main scientific achievements:
Michael Buslov is the world renowned specialist, actively working in the areas of geotectonics and geodymanics of fold belts. His scientific interests are within studying the structure, composition, age and geodynamics nature of Phanerozoic fold belts and intracontinental sedimentary basins of Central Asia, interrelations of Central Asian fold belt and the Siberian Platform. In his studies, M.Buslov uses methods of geological mapping, U-Pb dating of zircons, fission track dating of apatites, Ar-Ar dating of micas and amphiboles. In a cooperation with scientists from Ghent University (Belgium), M. Buslov has founded and leads the fission track analysis laboratory at the IGM SB RAS, as well as the research laboratory "correlation of geological processes" at Novosibirsk State University. He successfully balances his research with teaching at university.
