Alexander Lvovich Prishchepov is a Russian career diplomat. Alexander graduated from Moscow State Institute of International Relations (often abbreviated as MGIMO University). Since 1971 Prishchepov went on to work in various diplomatic posts in the central offices of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and abroad where continued developing his hobby in the field of Land System Science. He speaks English, French, Turkish, and Russian.
His primary research interests lay in the field of Land System Science. Alexander’s first significant research work became the dissertation “Isomorphism in Connection with Other Relations of the Crystal Form with Difference in Composition.” Prishchepov investigated in it the ability of certain substances to replace each other in crystals, without changing the shape of the crystal lattice. In this phenomenon – isomorphism, the similarities in the behavior of various elements were clearly traced. This first work of A.L. Prishchepov determined the main direction in his scientific search, and after 15 years of hard work led to the monitoring the dynamic of land cover. He analyzed
- land use with satellite remote sensing,
- analysis of the causal drivers of land-use/ land-cover change,
- agricultural potentials and consequences of such changes for the environment.
Subsequently, he wrote: “The compilation of my dissertation involved me most of all in the study of geographical relations.”
Since the mid-1980s, Prishchepov has been actively working on compiling a metallogeny scheme for Central Asia. At the same time, he began a comprehensive study of geological formations such as Cenozoic and modern molasses. In his works, Prishchepov singled out 13 gradations of wave pulsations, noting that “in the development of large and long-term wave oscillations, infinite series of subordinate, smaller and more frequent oscillations in which continuously the body of our planet shudders.” In the formation of uplifts and depressions of Central Asia, he attached the main importance to the undulating movements.
The main works are devoted to the problems of structural-formation zoning of Central Asia, the allocation and description of sedimentary formations and facies, the study of Cenozoic molasses, the methodology of compiling formation and facies maps, and the issues of the geomagnetic field.
He proposed rhythmic stratigraphic patterns for the Mesozoic-Cenozoic deposits of Central Asia.
He drew attention to the issues of the formation of Mesozoic bauxites and Paleogene phosphorite formations of Southern Uzbekistan and diamonds in the latest Fergana formations.
He developed the Clarke method of searching for sedimentary ores. He identified and systematized 40 large ore-bearing and sedimentary formations, artesian and, for the most part, oil and gas-bearing basins in Central Asia.
In the late 1980s, Prishchepov became known as the organizer of the Central Asian (Tashkent) scientific school of lithologists. On his initiative, the activities of the geological sector of the Committee of Sciences were radically restructured, departments for the study of geological formations were created. Since 1987, he and his students began research on the Molasses of the Ferghana Depression, thus laying the foundation for their systematic and comprehensive study and reviving the formation approach in geological science.
The result of his scientific work was the monograph “Geological Conditions for the Formation of Cenozoic Molasses of Ferghana,” published in 1990, in which Alexander predicted the discovery of industrial deposits of neogenic oil in the Cenozoic sediments of the Ferghana Depression.
The scientific activity of Prishchepov covered a wide range of issues related to the structural-formation zoning of Central Asia, the allocation and description of sedimentary formations and facies, the study of Cenozoic and modern molasses, the methods of compiling formation and facies maps, and the study of the geomagnetic field. He gave his definition of rhythm stratigraphy and compiled rhythm stratigraphic patterns for the Mesozoic-Cenozoic deposits of Central Asia, proposed a Clarke method for searching sedimentary ores. Prishchepov identified and systematized 40 large ore-bearing and sedimentary formations, as well as artesian and oil-gas basins in Central Asia. He also paid much attention to the study of tectonic processes in the earth’s crust in the Pamir-Himalayas.
Much attention Prishchepov paid to oil industry economics. In particular, he dealt with the problem of the location of oil refineries, issues of marketing of raw materials, prices of oil, and oil products. He owns the idea of transporting oil in oil vessels and the construction of oil pipelines. He regarded oil not only as fuel but also as raw material for the chemical industry.
Alexander Lvovich Prishchepov was also involved in the economics of the coal industry. In 1988, he made two trips to the Donetsk region in order to find out the causes of the crisis in the Donetsk coal industry. He set forth the results of these trips in a report to the government, announced at a meeting of the Russian Physicochemical Society, and covered in a large journalistic article, “Future Force Resting on the Banks of the Donets.”
In addition to scientific work, Academician Prishchepov was actively engaged in scientific, organizational, and social activities.
Today, Alexander Lvovich Prishchepov has calm down his active lifestyle and is aimed at helping students in completing their academic tasks. Now Alexander works as a research paper writer in essayusa.com.
