Curriculum Vitae

18 ianuarie 1955 – născut în oraşul Zimnicea, Judeţul Teleorman, România.

1971 – 1974 – Liceul teoretic Matei Basarab din Bucureşti – diploma de bacalaureat  pentru secţia REAL, iunie 1974;

1976 – 1981 – Universitatea din Bucureşti, Facultatea de Geologie şi Geografie, Secţia Inginerie Geologică şi Geofizică – examen de diplomă în specialitatea GEOFIZICĂ cu lucrarea „Studiul geotermic al regiunii din sud-estul Dobrogei de Sud, cu privire specială la sursele de ape   termominerale de la Mangalia”- iunie 1981;

1981 – 1987 – inginer geofizician la Intreprinderea de Prospecţiuni Geologice şi Geofizice, Bucureşti, specialitatea gravimetrie, prospecţiuni gravimetrice de mare detaliu în Dobrogea de Nord, Depresiunea Ciucului, Masivul Leaota, Munţii Metaliferi, Munţii Oaş şi Munţii Gutâi. Rezultatele au fost concretizate în rapoarte de producţie, care au condus la o cunoaştere mai bună a structurilor geologice de adâncime din zonele de interes economic, menţionate.

1987 – 1993 – cercetător ştiinţific la Institutul de Geologie şi Geofizică din Bucureşti, Secţia de Noi Metode Geofizice. Studii şi cercetări de inducţie electromagnetică în câmpuri naturale, în zonele Câmpulung Moldovenesc, Dărăbani, Iaşi şi Cluj (prin metoda curenţilor telurici), sau pe profile magnetotelurice în Depresiunea Ciceu, Depresiunea  Panonică, Masivul Godeanu, Carpaţii Orientali (profilul Adjud-Miercurea Ciuc). Rezultatele aplicării metodei magnetotelurice pe profile şi a metodei telurice (scara 1:200 000) sunt cuprinse într-un număr de patru şi respectiv trei rapoarte ştiinţifice, importante pentru cunoaşterea structurii geologice de adâncime.

1993 – prezent – cercetător ştiinţific la  Institutul de Geodinamică al Academiei Române, Bucureşti.

1994-1998 – cercetări privind comportarea câmpului teluric, geomagnetic, sau   geoelectromagnetic în scopul identificării semnalelor  cu caracter precursor cutremurelor vrâncene;
– studiul oportunităţilor de amplasare  în cadrul Observatorului Astrogeodinamic Căldăruşani, a unei radiosonde pentru evidenţierea manifestărilor anomale ale ionosferei, care preced un cutremur de pământ;
– în cadrul colaborării dintre Institutul de Geodinamică şi Universitatea din Edinburgh, am realizat măsurătorile de perioada lungă asupra câmpului magnetoteluric, în zona Vrancea, utilizând trei sisteme sincronizate, de achiziţie a datelor. Rezultatele obţinute prin prelucrarea acestora, au fost prezentate în cinci rapoarte ştiinţifice, care descriu un profil de şase  amplasamente cu măsuratori relativ scurte (30 zile), transversal pe curbura Carpaţilor Orientali, precum şi înregistrări pe termen lung (1,5 ani), efectuate în punctele de observaţie Greşu, Odobeşti, Vintileasca şi Căldăruşani din zona seismogenă Vrancea, permiţând îmbunătăţirea imaginii structurale de adâncime precum şi identificarea unor efecte anomale electrice, magnetice, sau electromagnetice, corelabile perioadelor de intensificare a activităţii seismice din zona Vrancea.

1993 – 1996 – pregătirea tezei de doctorat „Identificarea semnalelor seismoelectrice în domeniul frecvenţelor ultra-joase, prin studiul   componentei electrice a câmpului geoelectromagnetic”   în cadrul Institutului de Geodinamica – Academia Română, prin susţinerea a trei examene şi două referate, având titlurile: 1.Valoarea geonomică a informaţiei ce poate fi obţinută prin studiul câmpului geoelectromagnetic; 2. Fenomene electrice, magnetice şi electromagnetice pre-, co- şi post-seismice; valoare geonomică – valoare predictivă; 3. Geodinamica zonei Vrancea: condiţii ce impun/favorizează o anumită strategie în culegerea informaţiei geonomice cu valoare predictivă; 4. Zona seismogenă Vrancea, informaţii care principial pot fi obţinute   prin studiul unor efecte electrice, magnetice şi electromagnetice, posibil asociate proceselor tectonice. Analiza critică a metodelor utilizate în prezent; 5. Traductori folosiţi în măsurătorile câmpului electric şi electromagnetic, în domenul frecvenţelor ultra-joase, în scopul identificării semnalelor seismoelectrice/seismoelectromagnetice.

1998 – 2005 – cercetări în jurul momentului 2001 în care a devenit posibilă identificarea şi definirea „efectului de electrod al activităţii tectonice globale”. S-au concretizat prin subtitluri (rapoarte de cercetare ştiinţifică) în tematica fundamentală a Institutului de Geodinamică, sau prin proiecte propuse cu ocazia diferitelor competiţii de acordare de granturi:

– 2006 – 2011. Realizarea unei baze de date privind fenomenele geofizice la scară regională şi globală, utilizând facilităţile internetului în urmărirea înregistrărilor disponibile la diverse observatoare de pe Pământ (magnetism, geodinamică, meteorologie, parametri ai activităţii solare, activitatea seismică globală, regională şi locală ş.a). Etapa s-a finalizat prin susţinerea în anul de cercetare-învăţământ 2011-2012, în cadrul Institutului de Geodinamică al Academiei Române, a comunicării “Fenomene geofizice corelabile diferenţelor de potenţial de electrod înregistrate în condiţii de laborator”.
– 2013. Prelucrarea fotogramelor satelitare IR-full disk, disponibile pe internet pentru zonele Africa-Europa-Oceanul Atlantic-Oceanul Indian-vestul Asiei (METEOSAT-EUMETSAT), America de Nord-America de Sud-Oceanul Pacific (GOES -NOAA) şi estul Asiei-Pacificul de Vest-Australia (MTSAT-JMA). Au fost identificate structuri majore, cu aspectul principal de vortex,  asociate suprafeţelor mari acoperite de apa şi continentale, precum si structuri cu dezvoltare aproximativ liniară şi extindere comparabilă cu diametrul discului planetar, pe directiile NV-SE, NE-SV, N-S şi E-V. Au fost urmărite în funcţionarea lor pe fondul activităţii seismice globale, al variaţiilor sezoniere, precum şi al activităţii solare în perioada de vârf a ciclului nr.24, care a început în anul 2009. S-au observat unele particularităţi ale zonei seismogene Vrancea în cadrul sistemelor de structuri geofizice cu extindere globală   identificate.
