Maxim Albertovich Bogdasarov (b. 24.10.1973, Tashkent, Uzbekistan) - a scientist in the field of earth sciences. Corresponding Member (2017), Doctor of Geologo-Mineralogical Sciences (2009), Professor (2013).
Scientific research are devoted to identifying the characteristics of the formation, distribution, properties, composition of various types of fossil resins, to substantiate the prospects for identifying their new deposits in the Mesozoic and Cenozoic sediments of Northern Eurasia, which makes a significant contribution to the creation of a new geological-evolutionary concept of smologenesis. Established features of the material composition of fossil resins, which determine their practical value and gemological value. Performed species diagnostics and developed a classification of fossil resins. Revealed the specific characteristics of fossil resins, allowing to determine their age and use them to stratify the enclosing sediments. He substantiated the genetic concept of the formation of various types of resins in the post-sedimentation period under the influence of external conditions and their major manifestations in connection with favorable lithofacies conditions of accumulation. Established search criteria (stratigraphic, tectonic, geomorphological, lithological, mineralogical, facies, toponymic, historical, archaeological) localization of resin shows, identified large regions and individual areas that are promising for identifying deposits of tar, gave a qualitative and quantitative forecast of individual manifestations and their practical significance. He studies the structural-material complexes of the Late Cenozoic of the south-west of Belarus. He created a comprehensive picture of the structure and characteristics of the formation of the Quaternary sediments of the Brest region as the basis for the forecast of mineral resources and the rational use of the geological environment. He identified areas promising for a number of minerals (construction sand, sand and gravel materials, clay deposits).
Author of more than 300 scientific papers, including 8 monographs, 4 textbooks.
Prize of the NAS of Belarus for Young Scientists (2005) for the monograph “Fossil Resins of Northern Eurasia”.
