Scientific activity of the Department of Marine Geology covers studies within the coastal zone of the sea as well as on the coast. It focuses on research issues such as: Quaternary geology, sedimentology, geodynamics, itho- and biostratigraphy, and geophysics. The most important research directions of the Department are the following:

  • geologic structure of the southern Baltic`s floor and coast,

  • post-glacial evolution of the Baltic Sea,

  • lithostratigraphy and biostratigraphy of the Quaternary sediments,

  • recognition of the present-day and past sedimentary environments - marine, fluvial, aeolian, glacial, lacustrine - recording in the deposits of southern Baltic`s floor and coast,

  • geological investigation of the coastal zone with special attention to cliffs transformation,

  • results of the geodynamic processes triggered by natural and antropogenic factors,

  • non-destructive investigations of the sea floor,

  • acoustic studies of the underwater noises,

  • morpho-litho-dynamics of the sea floor in arctic regions,

  • studies of erratic boulders of north Poland.

The Marine Geology team consists of research-teaching staff (10 persons), 4 PhD students and technical staff (2 persons). The Department consists of three specialistic laboratories:

  • Stratigraphy and Sedimentology Laboratory

  • Marine Geophysics Laboratory

  • Laboratory of Applied Geology
