. Proposed a classification of tectonic movements and the main structural elements of the earth's crust, and clarified the general laws of geosynclinal process, investigated the problem of the main stages of evolution of the earth's crust. Developed basic questions of theoretical geotectonics - the doctrine of geosynclines, platforms, orogenic, deep faults, lithological formations (proposed classification on tektonoklimaticheskoy basis), the origin of folding. Research in these areas are reflected in the monographs geotectonic framework petroleum exploration, General Geotectonics, etc.. First systematic tectonic structure of continents and oceans, as reflected in the five-volume monograph Regional Geotectonics. A large place is occupied by the study, conducted jointly with AB Ronov, to analyze the spread lithological formations on a global scale, covering the periods of Riphean and Phanerozoic. The development of these works led to the creation of the vice-world maps. Spends a lot of work to establish international tectonic maps of Europe and World. Focusing on issues of Petroleum Geology. One of the founders of the oil and gas basins. Investigate the global pattern of oil and gas. Spoke in support of the new hypothesis, the tectonics of lithospheric plates, and developed its application to the Caucasus. In the field of history and methodology of science has considered a number of issues, the results published in the book A Short History of Geology (co-author. VV Tikhomirov, . 1956), . Some philosophical questions of modern geology (1958), . Dynamic interaction, . exogenous and endogenous processes as a basis for the development of the earth's crust (1961), .

Topic of Ph.D. thesis: The facies of the Jurassic and Cretaceous and the geotectonic history of South-Eastern Caucasus in the Mesozoic. Subject doctoral dissertation: geotectonic development of South-East Caucasus.
