The recent studies demonstrate the activation of geodynamic processes characterized by intense movement of the earth crust, manifestation of newest magmatism and active development of glaciers. The studies of different authors note the migration of seismic phenomena from south to the territory of Caucasus with increasing magnitude by 2025-2030. This is conditioned by the influence of Anatolian and Arabian platforms on the Russian platform. The most seismically active are territories of Dagestan, Chechnya, Ingushetia, Northern Ossetia and Kabardino-Balkaria. The exogenic processes are widely spread in the North Caucasian Federal District. Thus, comprehensive monitoring of volcanic, seismic, glaciological and landslide dangers is high on the agenda together with possible connected catastrophes. It is assumed to identify renewable sources of endogenic energy, the estimation of possible building of ecologically pure geothermal plants and their profitability. The North Caucasus District can be considered as a unique natural laboratory for fundamental science, development of the mineral reserve base and energetics. The creation of the geological and geophysical testing ground will ensure safe life of population and development of the recreational sector.
