To the question of geodynamic monitoring of the territory of the Kaliningrad region

The work is devoted to the development of issues of ensuring geodynamic safety in one of the densely populated regions of the Russian Federation, where large-scale projects for the development of subsoil are being implemented. In addition to the development of urban infrastructure, work is underway here on the construction of the Kaliningrad deposit and the mine at the Nivenskoye deposit of potassium and magnesium salts. Leads to the conclusion about the possible impact of such objects on the environment and geodynamic security of the region. The paper proposes a block diagram of geodynamic monitoring, within the framework of which studies are carried out on two objects and the territory of the city of Kaliningrad. It is also proposed to create a system of unified geodynamic monitoring, including seismological studies.

Keywords: underground gas storage, geodynamic testing ground, mine surveying and geodetic observations, seismological monitoring, geodynamic safety, rock bumps, man-made earthquakes, seismic activity.
