The head of Geological Survey and Mineral Explorations of Iran has announced that Iran and Russia will expand their cooperation to study the Iranian part of the Caspian Sea in a wide range of areas.

According to the agreements reached between two sides, Dr. Khalil Bahar Firouzi stated that these studies will mainly focus on monitoring the structure of the layers beneath the sea floor up to 50 meters deep and identifying traces of active faults in the underwater sediments, ISNA reports.

As she noted, the southern part of the Caspian Sea, where entirely located in the boundaries of the Iranian territorial sea, lacks proper geological information.

"The joint program will be run by GSME over the next two years as a subset of scheduled projects to be carried out in collaboration with the Russian Rosgeo state geological holding," the official noted.
