This year, the field group (GSDN) of the GPS Laboratory (LGPS), based on the Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) method, carried out planned field measurements of GNSS network sites in the Naryn and Issyk-Kul regions of Kyrgyzstan. Repeated surveys of the same GNSS sites in the study area make it possible to determine the high-precision position of the sites at the time of measurement and track the long-term rate of its displacement to solve fundamental geodynamic problems, as well as to assess the danger of living the population and other objects.

From May to September 2023, LGPS employees traditionally carried out two campaigns (KGS23a from 05/31/2023 to 06/30/2023; KGS23b from 08/09/2023 to 09/08/2023) to measure regional sites in the eastern part of Kyrgyzstan (Fig. 1).


Figure 1 - Regional marks where GNSS work was carried out in 2023: triangular markers - re-measured this year (89); round markers are planned but not measured sites due to the impossibility of access to them (3).

According to the decision of the administration of the RS RAS, from March 2022, only 3 brigades can participate in field GNSS campaigns. Each team includes an operator and driver of a ZIL-131 or GAZ-33088 vehicle. During the month, each team measures 14-15 sites, 36 hours are allocated to measure each site. At the same time, the vehicle mileage during one campaign was 1688-2133 km. The average vehicle mileage between observation sites was 126 km.

Since 2020, GSDN employees have been carrying out GNSS measurements with Russian-made MP-8 receivers, capable of recording signals from 4 satellite constellations: GPS, GLONASS, Beidou and SBAS (Fig. 2).

From August 29 to September 4, 2023, Group of Magnetotelluric soundings (GMTS) carried out monitoring observations on the territory of the Bishkek Geodynamic Proving Ground. This observations have been carried out since 2012. The observations covered the “East”, “West” and “Center” profiles in the area of ​ Norus village. Using the Phoenix MTU-5 and MTU-5A measuring systems, the MTS group consisting of three teams carried out deep magnetotelluric sounding (DMS) work at three points, on the “East” profile at observation point E14, on the “West” profile at observation point W00 and on the “Center” profile at observation point C6, where the duration of registration of MT field in the GMT mode at each point was about 110 hours.

The start of work was preceded by calibration of recorders and sensors of MT stations. The testing of the measuring systems involved in these works for the identity of MT-field registration was carried out at point C6. To assess the level of interference and parameter settings for recording the work recording, a control recording lasting at least 40 minutes was preceded. The orientation of previous of the measuring installations completely repeated the previous deployments.

In the period from July 04 to July 25 MTZ group consisting of 3 brigades carried out works on the profile "Ukok-2", which is located to the south of Kochkorka village in Kochkor district of Naryn oblast. The works on magnetotelluric sounding (MTZ) were carried out at 11 points. At 10 observation points the duration of MT field registration in the MTZ mode was 36-43 hours, at the observation point FT21 in the GMTZ mode, the registration was carried out in the form of two sessions of registration, duration of each was about 240 hours.


The work was carried out using the Phoenix MTU-5 and MTU-5A measurement complexes in the normal registration mode. The beginning of the work was preceded by calibrations of the recorders and sensors of MT stations. At all observation sites, a control recording of at least 40 minutes was preceded by a control recording to assess the level of interference and settings of registration parameters. The electric components of MT field were measured using measuring installations with electric dipoles of 50 m length. The magnetic field components were measured using MTS-50 induction sensors. At all sounding points the grounding of dipoles was carried out with the help of non-polarizing electrodes, grounding of dipoles was carried out according to the principle "sensor to sensor" with the previous years of observations. The orientations of the measurement setups at these stations were fully repeated with the previous deployments.
