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.

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.

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.

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.

Processes of the concentration of energy at the formation of rogue waves have been studied in computer experiments based on the exact hydrodynamic equations for an ideal fluid. The distribution of anomalies of waves both in height and in energy has been found in the computer experiment. Correlation between the energy concentration and height of anomalously large surface waves has been revealed. The results can be used to estimate the danger of anomalously large surface waves. © 2014, Maik Nauka-Interperiodica Publishing. All rights reserved.

The article describes the methods of teaching students majoring in languages with the use of practice-oriented exercises, the need for the development and implementation of which is defined by a new methodological basis of modern higher vocational education – a competence-based approach. The study hypothesis involves the assumption that practice-oriented exercises allow to intensify the mental, practical and creative student activities, form a positive motivation both to study Japanese and be engaged in future professional activities. The article contains the results of the joint work of teachers of the Sakhalin State University on drawing up and introduction of practice-oriented exercises for students studying Japanese at the level of professional communication at the university and majoring in “Oriental and African Studies” and “Pedagogical Education”. The study represents the general content of practice-oriented exercises, implying an interdisciplinary impact and integration of training courses, independent work of students, students’ clear understanding of the ultimate goals of the task and assessment means. The content of each exercise, the rationale for its development, objectives, targets, the progress and the learning results have been described in detail. Students’ comments have been presented demonstrating the efficiency of using practice-oriented exercises in the educational process. © 2016, IJESE. All Rights Reserved.

The modernization of higher education and the transition to the new Federal Education Standards require a higher quality training of the graduates. The training of highly qualified specialists must meet strict requirements: a high level of professional competence, the developed communication skills, the ability to predict the results of one’s own activity, etc. Effective training is possible when the competency, practiceoriented approach, active and interactive teaching methods are used. Currently, a focus in teaching students is on the role of independent work, the organization of practice, physical training of the graduates, the fund of evaluation tools, inclusive education, quality training of the teaching staff, as well as the active and interactive teaching methods. The active and interactive methods allows sharing information, receiving feedback, solving together the arising problems, simulating the educational situations, evaluating one’s own behavior and the actions of other participants, diving into the real atmosphere of business cooperation in solving problematic issues. Various methods exist of interaction between the teacher and students: cooperative learning methods, group discussions, debates, business simulation games, case situation analysis, project method, social-psychological training, moderation, computer simulations, and others. Thanks to interactive methods, the students form the professional competences, develop analytical thinking, mobilize the cognitive powers, an interest in new knowledge is awakened, and the creativity of personality is revealed. This article discusses the experience of using interactive methods with the students studying at the Institute of Psychology and Pedagogy of the Sakhalin State University. © 2016 The Authour(s).
