 Academician KARABANOV Alexander Kirillovich Alexander Kirbanovich Karabanov (born October 25, 1952 , Minsk), scientist in the field of geology. Academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (2004), Doctor of Geological and Mineralogical Sciences (2003), Professor (2011). He graduated from the Belarusian State University (1974). Since 1974, the Institute of Geochemistry and Geophysics of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus: since 1985, a senior research fellow, since 1992, the head of the laboratory. Since 2008, the director of the Institute of Nature Management of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, at the same time the head of the laboratory.

Research Interest

 tudies in the field of regional geology, neotectonics, geodynamics and geomorphology of Belarus. He studies the geology of the Cenozoic territory of Belarus, revealed regularities in the structure of the newest geological formations and the evolution of large relief forms, developed an original complex methodology for reconstructing the amplitudes of neotectonic movements of ancient glaciation. He developed the concept of neotectonic evolution and the newest geodynamics of the territory of Belarus. As part of the international group of the project "Neogeodynamics of the Baltic" performed neotectonic zoning of Western and Central Europe, identified the main geodynamic factors that determined the course of geological processes and the character of sedimentation in the Late Cenozoic in Belarus and adjacent areas of the East European Platform. Prize of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus 2008 for a series of works "Rifts and Lineaments of the Earth's Crust: Theoretical and Applied Aspects". Author of 250 scientific works, incl. 13 monographs.
