Main scientific achievements: 

Generalized theoretical bases of an elekcrometry in open reservoirs, developed and introduced new methods of electrophysical researches of water ecosystems (1970, 1973). Revealed regularities of formation, and dynamics of natural electromagnetic fields in the fresh-water environment, obtained priority data on electrobiology of water organisms (a plankton, fishes); Developed ways of express quality control of water, search and detection of anthropogenous sources of distortion of a natural electromagnetic field in water (1972, 1990). In 1986-2000 investigated influence of energy of natural and technogenic electromagnetic fields on animal physiology and the person in extreme laboratory conditions. Revealed physiological reactions of water organisms to impact of weak nonionization electromagnetic radiation in an ultralow-frequency range and defined criteria of prelethal doses of radiation (1992-2000).

The doctoral dissertation was estimated and allocated among works in 11.00.01 VAK of the Russian Federation in 1992 (Bulletin VAK No. 6, 1992, page 21).

Pedagogical work conducted with 1970 (theses and lecturing in St.Petersburg State University and Russian state hydrometeorological university). From 1995 to 2004 in St.Petersburg State Polythechnical University, ISF, chair "Ecological bases of environmental management" taught a training course "Electromagnetic ecology", since spring of 2005 started implementation of the new program and lecturing in the scientific direction "Protection of environment against power influences" for students of the V course. Organized scientific Laboratory "Electrophysics of natural ecosystems", carried out researches on identification of a physiological role weak, extreme characteristics of an electromagnetic field of nonionizing radiation in various conditions of habitat.

In 1996-2000 the structure of Specialized Council of 063.57.42 on protection of doctoral and master's theses entered at the St. Petersburg State University.
