Ramiz Mahmud oğlu Mammadov

 Academician of ANAS, Doctor of Sciences of Technical, professor R.M.Mamedov is a recognized scientist, as in Azerbaijan, and internationally. He the author 250 scientific article, 10 monographies, 1 atlas and about 20 international projects in areas of Caspian sea and preservation of the environment in Azerbaijan. He in 1972 has ended physical faculty of the AzerbaijanStateUniversity. The scientific activity of the beginnings in 1973 in the Center of Problems of Caspian Sea of Institute of Geography of the Academy of Sciences Azerbaijan. Period 1975-76 years passed training in Moscow in Institute of Oceanology of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR. In the same place in 1977 has acted in postgraduate study on internal branch on a speciality of "the Physicist of ocean" where in 1980 has protected the master's thesis and has received a scientific degree of the candidate of physical and mathematical sciences.

 In 1995 he  defended his doctor's thesis  on  the  subject of "Change­ability  of hydrophysical areas  of the Caspian Sea and their influence on diffusion of pollutants''  and became Doctor of Technical Sciences,  in 2001 was   elected Corresponding Member  of the ANAS on  the specialty of  "Geography".   In 2009 he 1 as   awarded academic status «Professor" by the Supreme Attestation Commission of Azerbaijan on the   specialty   of «Hydrology".

 R.Mammadov is a known scientist and authority in the field of researches of the Caspian Sea in Azerbaijan and in the world as well.  His scientific researches were devoted to actual problems of the Caspian Sea - mainly the hydrology, hydrology, hydrophyiscis, mutual in­fluence of atmosphere and sea, study of turbulent exchange and tur­bulent diffusion in the sea, creation of physical and geographical model of diffusion of pollutants in the sea, status and ecogeographical problems of Caspian Sea.

 The transborder water problems of the Kur-Araz basin, study of desertification process in Azerbaijan, landscape planning and environmental protection are also R.Mammadov’s basic research directions.

 R.M.Mamedova's works, both articles, and monographies are published in scientific magazines known the world and editions. He adequately represents Azerbaijan in scientific and ecological structures of such international organizations as the United Nations, EU, UNESCO, etc., nearby 40 countries has acted with scientific reports.

Main scientific achievements:   

For the first time investigated statistical and spectral characteristics of turbulences on wide spatially and temporary scales in the open part of the Caspian sea, has established of general regularity of distribution and propagation of contaminants in the sea. Has elaborated model for definition of parameters of the upper quasi-homogeneous layer on temperature, if there is speed and wind direction, and also flow of heat through a surface of the sea. The non-stationary model for interaction of atmosphere with the sea is designed, which one at a known course of wind speed allows to determine of parameters of a ground atmospheric slice. The physical and geographical model for calculation of propagation and distribution of contaminants in the Caspian sea is designed under different hydro meteorological conditions, with allowance for of bottom configuration and configuration of a coast zone. Investigated the causes of fluctuation of level of the Caspian sea, has established influencing the different factors on fluctuation of levels, has elaborated a long-time forecasting of fluctuation of level as a first approximation. Has preformed and has emited the Complex Hydrometeorological Atlas of the Caspian Sea.
