List of Members
Welcome to the website of the regional IHSS-Chapter of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS-IHSS). International Humic Substances Society (IHSS) was founded in Denver, Colorado, USA, on September 11, 1981, because there was a need for a society to bring together scientists in the coal, soil, and water sciences with interest in humic substances, and to provide opportunities for them to exchange ideas. CIS-IHSS is a successor of the Russian IHSS Chapter founded in 1994. Decision about establishing CIS-IHSS Chapter was taken by both Russian and other CIS countries representatives of leading Soviet schools in the field of humic research including Acad. Jorobekova (Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan), Prof. Bezuglova (Rostov-on-Don, Russia), Prof. Gorova (Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine), Dr. Chukov (St. Petersburg), Drs. Kogut and Sadovnikova (Moscow, Russia), Dr. Vasilchuk (Kiev, Ukraine) at the Open Meeting of the Russian IHSS-Chapter held on September 25, 2002 in Zvenigorod (Russia). The Meeting has proposed to integrate existing Russian chapter and the founded CIS chapter into one Regional CIS-IHSS chapter. This idea was supported by the results of electronic vote of the members of Russian Chapter that took place in December 2002 (for details on the founding history click here). The main goal of the CIS IHSS is consolidation of the efforts of the CIS scientists in the field of basic and applied humic research. At present, CIS IHSS has a membership of 78 scientists and engineers, 64 of those are regular members, and 14 are student members. They are scientists and engineers both from research institutes and industrial firms. The scope of scientific interests includes structure, molecular properties, and genesis of humic substances, interactions of humics with heavy metals and organic ecotoxicants, application of humics for remediation technologies, biological activity of humics; technologies of manufacturing and agricultural applications of humics, and others. We are glad to be a part of the world-wide humic research community. We are open for cooperation and welcome any kind of HUMIC activities.
