This project is dedicated to the study of the influence of eco-geochemical, landscape conditions of different regions of Azerbaijan on the health of local populations, migration regularities of macro- and microelements and their concentration in the environment.
In the framework of the project was already made an expedition on the Major and Minor Caucasus, the Kure-Araz lowland and Lenkoran-Talysh zone, where was collected an extensive field material.
