June 28, 2018. Dr. Sc. Igor Mikhailovich Aleshin spoke at a seminar of the laboratory of geoinformatics and geomagnetic studies of GC RAS.

His presentation "Compact energy-efficient device for the collection and transfer of geomagnetic data" was previously shown at the IInd All-Russian Scientific and Practical Conference "Scientific Instrument-Making - Current State and Prospects for Development" (Kazan, Russia, 2018).

Within the framework of the report, the device was developed based on a single-board computer with an ARM-processor, which provides geomagnetic data registration. The recorder is characterized by low power consumption (~ 3 W), small size and weight. Registration and local storage is carried out on the basis of the specialized SEEDLink protocol. This protocol also allows real-time data transfer. In IPv4 networks, the communication between the device and the data collection center is carried out via an encrypted channel using virtual private network technology. The fact that the basis of the recorder is a fully functional computer allows remote control of both the device itself and the measuring equipment connected to it. The device is adapted to work with a number of magnetometers used in geomagnetic measurements.

July 11, 2018. Corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, V. A. Petrov, head of the Geoinformatics Laboratory of IGEM RAS, visited GC RAS. The purpose of the visit was to participate in a working meeting in which A. Gvishiani, Director of the Geophysical Center, A. Soloviev, Deputy Director for Science, A. Rybkina, Deputy Director for Development, and researcher A. Odintsova participated.

July 6-10, 2018. Scientists of the Laboratory of Geoinformatics and Geomagnetic Studies D. V. Peregudov and M. N. Dobrovolsky took part in the joint event – the 26th Extended European Cosmic Ray Symposium and 35th Russian Cosmic Ray Conference. The event was held at the Altai State University (Barnaul, Russia).

July 2-4, 2018. Leading engineer of the Laboratory of Geoinformatics and Geomagnetic Studies of GC RAS A. Grudnev visited "Klimovskaya" observatory (Arkhangelsk region, Klimovskaya village). The main goal of the expedition is to carry out routine preventive works aimed at maintaining the working capacity of geomagnetic equipment, including a scalar magnetometer.

July 4, 2018. Two international scientific organizations - the International Council for Science (ICSU) and the International Social Science Council (ISSC) have united in a new union - the International Science Council (ISC). GC RAS represents the interests of Russia in the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG), now part of the ISC. IUGG General Secretary Alik T. Ismail-Zade was elected as the chief secretary of the newly formed Council.
