Project summary

The goal of the suggested project is development of mathematical models for different processes taking place in internal seas. The models are based on solutions of 3D non-stationary equations of transfer-diffusion (taking into consideration the existence of sources). By solving these equations the outcomes obtained for a sea dynamics problem are used (G.Marchuk, A.Kordzadze).

The developed models will be unilizes for ecologically safe utilization of seas’ mineral resources. First of all the results of mathematical calculations will be applied for forecasting of allocation of different mineral resources in area of water of the sea. Second, calculation will be carried out on spreading of different components (ratio-active, toxic, etc.) within various resources. Third, calculations will be done on location of coordinates of radioactive and toxic wastes in the sea’s area of water. The results of theoretical calculations will be used for the Black Sea. Experimental work will be carried out on extracting of treasures of the soil – gases (methane, hydrogen sulphide, ammonia), rare and non-ferrous metals – from sea water. Work on neutralizing of toxic gases (hydrogen sulphide) in the sea deapts will be carried out with the help of deap reactor. Thus, the suggested project is of interest not only from the point of view of fundamental science, but also it is urgent for practice.

The outcomes can be easily applied for other seas, for example for the Baltic sea.

Solution of most suggested problems will be done for the first time in the world.

Scientists, involved in the project, are highly-qualified specialists in the sphere of mathematical physics, electrochemistry, kinetics of charge transfer processes in complex systems, special techniques for extreme conditions.

Project’s realization will be enable to provide support to continuation of fundamental research in the enumerated sphere that have traditionally been carried out in M.Nodia Institute of Geophysics of Georgian (IGPh) Academy of Sciences (GAS), Academician I. Vekua Sukhumi Institute of Physics and Technology (SIPhT) of the GAS, R.Agladze Institute of Inorganic Chemistry and Electrochemistry (IICEC) GAS, I.Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University (TSU).
