The institute has large scientific schools in planetary and theoretical geophysics and provides the study of the internal structure of the earth through geophysical methods, seismology and the assessment of natural risks, geomagnetism, and physics of the ionosphere and magnetosphere. The specialists of the institute study the Earth’s fields, paleomagnetism issues, and magnetic properties of rocks, develop geophysical monitoring methods for predicting natural and man-made disasters, and explore the problems of the origin and early history of the Earth.
