Sto lat badań głębokiej budowy geologicznej Polski w Państwowym Instytucie Geologicznym – zarys historii

Marek Narkiewicz


Hundred years of studies of the deep geology of Poland in the Polish Geological Institute – a historical outline.
A b s t r a c t. Polish Geological Institute was established in 1919 as the geological survey of Poland. During its entire history the Institute has been playing the leading role in regional geological studies, including the country’s subsurface geology and deep structure, to provide scientific basis for mineral exploration and production, and also for other fields of applied geology. These activities were strongly influenced by the complicated history of Poland during the past 100 years with periods of economic and political crisis interwoven with times of better prospects for economy and geology. Regardless of these external circumstances, the geologists and geophysicists of the PGI have constantly been expanding the knowledge of the geology of Poland by publishing thousands of contributions in the form of articles, monographs, maps and atlases. The Institute also contributed to the geology of Europe by participating in various international research projects that resulted in highly rated publications.
