The scale structure of pink salmon Oncorhynchus gorbuscha inhabiting southern Sakhalin and Iturup Island were studied in 2014. These locations are characterized by the unusual dynamics of catches and biological parameters of the fish that come to spawn in different areas in the Sakhalin-Kuril region. The pink salmon that has originated from Iturup Island appeared en masse in the waters of southern Sakhalin, according to the analysis of the scleritogram fragments that reflect the fish growth during the first months of life. This is the first confirmation of the hypothesis of the fluctuating stocks of pink salmon approved by the ichthyological methods. It is suggested that wide-scale straying of pink salmon takes place in the years of dominance shift between the generations of even and odd spawning years. © 2017, Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.

The relevance of the work is caused by the fact that evaluation of the current status of land, determining the character of changes in the components of natural systems, prediction of activation of the negative processes of changing landscapes and all components of ecosystems, are not possible without high-quality data that can be obtained only through the well-organized monitoring systems at the regional level. The aim of the research is to analyze the possibilities of systems for environmental monitoring; to find out the correlations of the external manifestations in the relief of internal natural processes and their causes; to define the indicators of processes orientation; to develop the recommendations to optimize the functioning of regional systems of monitoring based on atlas geographic information system (GIS) mapping. Research methods. The authors have carried out the analysis of technical capabilities of the receiving stations of satellite data from the TERRA spacecraft, Landsat, NOAA and others at the regional level in Sakhalin region. When carrying out the researches the authors used the methods of mathematical and geospatial mapping, statistical, complex physical-geographical, spatial analysis, thematic interpretation, etc. Results. The authors developed the recommendations on organizing the monitoring system of Sakhalin region and defined its composition and technical equipment. It was proposed to solve the problems of a certain scale for regional land monitoring, based on GIS mapping and data of remote sensing of the Earth performed with certain frequency of observations.

Coal industry is the oldest mineral mining branch both in the Sakhalin Region and in the whole Russian Far East. Since its initiation and up till now, the industry branch preserves leadership together with the oil and gas industry and production of aquatic biological resources. The article gives a brief history of the coal industry in the Sakhalin Region. Petrography, chemistry, performance capability and other characteristics of the mineral are described. The quality of coal is analyzed. It is emphasized that Sakhalin coal features high quality and diff erent properties and, for this reason, enjoys high demand as power-producing fuel, and in the long view, it can become a high-grade raw material for production of metallurgical coke, synthetic liquid fuel, hydrocarbon gas and other coal-chemical products. The authors inform on the coal reserves and resources in the region. The most often used method to extract coal is open pit mining, while the amount of known reserves recoverable with the stripping mining method is small as compared with the geological reserves and totals 169.9 Mt. Major portion of the reserves occurs at such deposits as Solntsevskoe, Vakhrushevskoe, Novikovskoe, Gornozavodskoe, Tikhmenevskoe, Verkhne- Armudanskoe and Tikhonovichskoe. The state-of-The-Art of the coal industry is reviewed. The industry follows diff erent lines of development in the recent decade. Rates of coal mining gradually grow. The highest increase is being observed since 2013. In 2016 9.96 Mt of coal was produced, which was the absolute maximum for the whole history of the industry. This production rate is supported by 14 operating open pit mines. Finally, the article identifi es the most acute problems the coal mining industry is now faced with in the region.

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.

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).
