Sakhalin State University is a university located in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Sakhalin. It maintains a sister school relationship with Busan University of Foreign Studies and Dongseo University of the Republic of Korea. As a result of this relationship and the large population of local Sakhalin Koreans, students from Korea form the majority of international students at Sakhalin State University. Wikipedia.

This article is about activities of mining engineer L. F. Bartsevich who made a considerable contribution to the development of mining in the Russian Far East. L. F. Bartsevich initiated exploration and development of natural wealth in the vast Far Eastern outback. He studied salt-bearing clay formations, silver and lead ore deposits and black coal fields, assessed state of mining on the island of Sakhalin (1888), took part in geological exploration at the river of Zeya (1890) and plotted a geological map of the area based on the collected data, surveyed the Amur province at the branches of the Stanovoi Range hosting silver ore bodies (1891-1893). Exceptional merit of Leopold F. Bartsevich is oil potential exploration in the island of Sakhalin. Headed by Bartsevich, a geological expedition discovered oil seepages and solid bitumen deposits (kir). Bartsevich made his first professional geological description of the oil field and plotted its map. L. F. Bartsevich's contribution to exploration and development of the Priamurye General Government was not unheeded. Under the Decree of the Ruling Senate, he was promoted a state councilor and awarded the Order of Saint Anna of 2nd degree and the Order of Saint Vladimir of 4th degree. Retired from the state service, Bartsevich continued working at various job positions and engaged himself in public work. He headed the editorial board of the Bulletin of Society of Mining Engineers journal and was an active member of the Society for Promotion of Russian Oil Industry. Source

The state of the marine environment (the temperature, light intensity, transparency, biogenic load) in Tatar Strait was assessed based on mean annual data from literary sources and with the use of GIS "Sakhalin Shelf." The entire strait was divided into three regions (northern, southwestern, and southeastern), and water exchange between them for each month was estimated by using Bergen Oceanic Model. The information about the state of the marine environment and water exchange characteristics was used as input data for a hydroecological model, which enabled the assessment of annual variations of biogenic substance concentrations and biomasses of microorganisms (heterotrophic bacteria, three groups of phytoplankton, and two groups of zooplankton) in the strait regions chosen. The development conditions of microorganism biomasses within the year can be characterized by their activity indices (specific growth rates), the values of internal fluxes of biogenic substances, and calculated bioproductivity values. The calculated biogenic substance concentrations and phytoplankton bioproductivity values showed good agreement with the estimates for the Sea of Japan and Tatar Strait available from the literature. © Pleiades Publishing, Ltd., 2010.

Mathematical simulation is used to study the biotransformation conditions of compounds of organogenic elements (C, N, P, Si) and oil hydrocarbons in the water of southeastern Sakhalin shelf. The input data for calculations were evaluated with the use of Sakhalin Shelf GIS or taken from the reference literature and materials of expedition studies. The values of water discharges through the boundaries of the zones chosen within the shelf water area and through the interface with the Sea of Okhotsk were derived from the characteristics of currents estimated by means of Bergen University oceanic model based on normal long-term monthly thermohaline parameters obtained from the Sakhalin Shelf GIS. The intraannual variations of the concentrations of organic and mineral compounds of C, N, P, and Si, as well as oil hydrocarbons because of biotransformation of substances by organisms of the community (bacteria, phytoand zooplankton) were evaluated in calculations with CNPSi-model. The results of calculations, revealing the features of the dynamics of substances, the biomass of organisms, and their activity in matter biotransformations were analyzed. © 2016, Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.

The article deals with the theoretical and philosophical foundations of Bolsheviks' attitude towards religion in general and "sectarianism", in particular, during fledging years after the October Revolution. The relationship between philosophical views and practical policy of the Bolshevik government is analyzed. Unformedness of religious policy of the Soviet state in combination with the pre-revolutionary affection of the top Bolshevik leadership to "sectarians", who, like the Bolsheviks, were persecuted by the tsarist autocracy, as well as the hope for their support of young power, predetermined inconsistent, but the loyal in general attitude of the new state towards "sectarians" during fledging years after the October Revolution. Research attention is focused on the analysis and assessment of the Bolsheviks' religious policy represented in the foreign English-language historiography. Source

A hydroecological model is used for simultaneous studying water pollution processes by petroleum hydrocarbons and their decay under the oceanographic conditions of Tatar Strait. The model calculations were based on long-term averaged observational data on interannual variations of water temperature, light intensity, and transparency. Some oceanographic characteristics of the strait were reconstructed with the help of GIS "Sakhalin Shelf." The strait's water area was divided into three regions, and water exchange between them and the neighboring regions of the Sea of Japan was estimated by a hydrodynamic model. The results of the study made it possible to assess interannual variations in the concentrations and inner fluxes of petroleum hydrocarbons, oil-oxidizing bacteria biomasses, and the characteristics of their oxidation activity. © Pleiades Publishing, Ltd., 2010.
