Far Eastern Branch, USSR Academy of Sciences (1987-1991)
The Far Eastern Scientific Center was transformed to the Far Eastern Branch of the USSR Academy of Sciences in September 1987 under the government decree to strengthen the role of science in socioeconomic development of the region.
So, in 1988 within the framework of the branch the following institutes were founded: Institute of Applied Mathematics and Institute of Marine Technology Problems in Vladivostok, Institute of Machinery and Metallurgy in Komsomolsk-on-Amur.
In spite of difficult financial situation the following institutes were founded: in 1991 - Institute for Material Studies in Khabarovsk, Institute of Volcanic Geology and Geochemistry and Institute of Ecology and Natural Resources Management in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Institute of Complex Analysis of Regional Problems in Birobidjan, Botanical Gardens in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk (1990) and Center "Arktika" in Magadan (1991) and Scientific Research Center "Chukotka" in Anadyr (1991).
Thus, the distribution of fields of scientific investigations conducted by academic institutions in the Far East changed.
