Short description of research profile

The Division is invested in non-invasive methods for seafloor research for classification of seabed types and geodynamics. In addition we carry: sedimentological studies of marine sediments, geomorphological study of the seafloor of various environments (Baltic Sea and Atlantic), geodynamic studies of coastal zone of the Baltic Sea and the dynamics of the Scandinavian ice sheet in Poland and glaciers in modern polar zones.
