Offshore geological cartography in the research history of the Marine Geology Branch of the Polish Geological
Institute – National Research Institute.
A b s t r a c t. The article is an overview of 50 years of Marine Geology Branch (MBG) activity in the field of geological cartography in Polish maritime areas. As a result of successive recognition of the geological structure of the Cenozoic, sheets of the Geological Map of the Baltic Sea Bottom at a scale of 1 : 200,000 had been published by 1994, followed by a geological map without Quaternary deposits. The summary of the stage of over 25 years of intense research was the Geological Atlas of the Southern Baltic. The achievements of the Marine Geology Branch also include geochemical atlases, geo-environmental maps, and coastal zone maps created on the basis of detailed mapping works. The successively expanded geological database enables the creation of many map products for the needs of specific users. Various studies related to marine geological cartography, and extensive national and international cooperation have significantly contributed to the development of the scientific staff of the Marine Geology Branch..
