In 2009, the Scientific Research Fund of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts (SASA) provided and allocated the funds for scientific research, publishing activity, interacademic and international cooperation, for the participation of SASA members and their associates in scientific meetings in the country and abroad, for the acquisition of scientific literature and for other SASA scientific research needs.
In 2009, the scientific research programme of the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts, including its Branch in Novi Sad and the Centres in Niš and Kragujevac, was carried out through 74 projects in the field of natural sciences and mathematics, 13 projects in the field of technical sciences, 24 projects in the field of medical sciences, 21 projects in the field of language and literature, 9 projects in the field of social sciences, 37 projects in the field of historical sciences and 5 projects in the field of fine arts and music.
The work results were published in scientific and professional journals and monographs, or were presented at scientific meetings.
In 2009, 31 publications were published in the SASA editions. The total number of copies was 14,930. In these SASA editions, 329 authors published 272 works.
In the course of 2009, 146 members and associates of the SASA made study trips or participated in scientific meetings in the country and abroad.
In addition, more than 200 scientists visited the SASA either under bilateral agreements on free exchange of researchers, or as participants in scientific meetings, lecturers and members of official delegations.
In 2009, the Academy organized 3 Formal Sessions on the Day of the Academy, on Charles Darwin’s bicentenary, and on Milutin Milanković’s jubilee, 14 scientific meetings, 13 lectures, and 4 commemorative gatherings.
The resources allocated by the Fund for the acquisition of professional literature in 2009, were mainly used for a subscription to foreign journals and the acquisition of other foreign scientific publications according to the needs of the specified committees, research teams and individuals, whose projects are carried out under the Academy’s scientific research programmes. A portion of these resources was also used for the acquisition of domestic scientific publications.
The complex study of Paleozoic, Mesozoic and Tertiary sediments of Serbia from paleontologic, biostratigraphic and paleoecological aspects was continued in 2009. It included a solution to some stratigraphic and tectonic relationships between marine and continental sediments of Serbia. The study of the age of the ophiolite complexes of Serbia, Republika Srpska, Montenegro and Hungary, and their geodynamic implications were analyzed in particular.
The Norian-Lower Liassic shallow-water carbonates, middle LiassicLower Doger Amonitico Rosso facies and Upper Bathonian deep-water radiolarites in the Krš Gradac section (near to Sjenica, SW Serbia) were investigated from stratigraphical and sedimentological points of view.
The paper “The age of the ophiolite mélange and turbidites in the North-Bosnian Zone” (Kozara, Prosara, Trebovac, Majevica and Zvornik) was presented at the Conference devoted to the 30 years of interacademic cooperation of Academician Stevan Karamata “Dinaridic and Carpatho-Balkanide Terranes in the Circum-Pannonian area”, at the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts.
The results of the geology and organic geochemistry of the Aleksinac oil shale were presented at the Annual Meeting in Gramado (Porto Alegre;
Brazil). New results about the rapid pyrolysis of Serbian soft brown coals were also published in 2009.
2. Investigation of the fossil flora and fauna of Serbia A study of two look-alike dasycladalean algae: Clypeina isabellae from the Berrisian of Sardinia and Clypeina loferensis from the Upper Jurassic of the northern Calcareous Alps were analyzed and published in 2009. The study of the paleontologic and biostratigraphic characteristics of a mat-forming cyanobacterium on Cretaceous carbonate platforms and its modern counterpart was continued in 2009. A study of conodonts across the Permian-Triassic boundary in Hungary and Serbia was finished in 2009. Investigations of the Late Permian conodonts from the Jadar Block (Vardar Zone, northwestern Serbia) were also finished. The investigations of palynomorphs of the ophiolite complexes of Serbia and Montenegro and the Neogene of the Pannonian Basin were continued. The results of investigations of charophyta at some Serbian Neogene localities were presented at the 3rd International Workshop on the Neogene from Central and southeastern Europe (Cluj-Napoca, 2009).
Project: PALYNOMORPHS FROM PALEOZOIC AND MESOZOIC
SEDIMENTS IN SER�IAPaleontological and geological investigations of the volcano-sedimentary Carboniferous deposits in the area of the Carpatho-Balkanides in eastern Serbia were continued. The palynomorphs from the Precambrian-Cambrian sediments in Stara Planina (Carpatho-Balkanides) were investigated. The Upper Triassic and Lower Jurassic deposits of Stara Planina were investigated from paleontological, biostratigraphical and organic petrographical standpoints. The determination of the boundaries between Rhät-Lias in eastern Serbia was continued.

11 The text for the Triassic (the rifting processes and formation of oceanic realms, authors M. Sudar and S. Karamata) and the Jurassic (maximal extension and closure of most of these realms, authors S. Karamata and M. Sudar) is ready for printing in 2010. In addition, the whole monograph for the terranes of the Circum-Pannonian region will be published in 2010 (from Serbia and this Committee, the editors are S. Karamata and M. Sudar).
The synthesis of the origin and formation of the present day structure of the central part of the Balkan Peninsula because of movement and agglomeration of terranes from the Early Paleozoic to the Neogene is in print by the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences.
Work on the project of regional and geophysical research in the scope of geological investigations of Serbia continued at the profile R4-10 UžiceKragujevac-Zaječar. A seismic, gravimetric and magnetotelluric survey is planned. A modern interpretation of the geophysical data demands a number of transformations of the measured geophysical fields and intense numeric data processing.
2. The study of the Carpatho-�alkanides of eastern Serbia (Dr. Branislav Krstić and Corresponding Member Milan Sudar) In the frame of a contract between the SASA and the BAN (Bulgarian Academy of Sciences), joint fieldwork and investigations of Paleozoic, Triassic and Jurassic formations on both sides of the Serbian-Bulgarian state boundary were studied, earlier data was summarized and new data published.
This work will continue.
Dr. B. Krstić worked on the text that refers to the Carpatho-Balkanides of eastern Serbia for an Explanatory Booklet for the Geological Map of Serbia 1:300,000. The Explanatory Booklet is in its final form, with a sketch of the structural units and it will be published in 2010. The geological composition of the following Units and Sub-units are discussed: the Krajina Unit (Severin Nappe), the Vrška Čuka-Miroč Unit (Vrška Čuka Block and Мiroč Block), the Stara Planina-Poreč Unit (Stara Planina Part and Poreč Part), the Kučaj Unit with the sub-units – Tupižnica-Tepoš, the Timok Eruptive Area, the Кučaj Unit, Homolj Crystalline (Getic Nappe), the Samanjac-Suva Planina Unit and the Gornjak Unit (Nappe), the Lužnica Unit (Kraishte), the Tumba-Penkjovci Nappe and the Supragetic Unit (Nappe) composed of the Ranovac-PoružnicaVlasina and the Serbian-Macedonian Units.
Dr. I. Filipović worked on the same problems, but in the territory of western Serbia.
