Abstract

The development of methodological research in geology in the USSR in the late 50s - early 70s of the last century (the emergence of the Novosibirsk School and its impact on methodological research in the country) is considered. The paper examines research activity of the Laboratory of Theoretical Tectonics of the Institute of Tectonics and Geophysics of the Far Eastern Research Centre of the USSR Academy of Sciences in the field of methodology of geology, theoretical tectonics, creation of terminology guides to different branches of geology, analysis of geological space structure, methodology and theory of geological mapping, and classification problems. Researchers of the laboratory when it functioned and after it was closed down successfully defended 6 candidate and 4 doctoral dissertations, published 11 monographs, 11 terminology guides, dozens of research papers, and other scientific publications. Some ethical issues in research are also considered.

KEY WORDS: methodology of geology, theoretical tectonics, Laboratory of Theoretical Tectonics of the Institute of Tectonics and Geophysics of the Far Eastern Research Centre.
