The Earth Science Institute of the Slovak Academy of Sciences explores and investigates geodynamic evolution of the Earth, its rock composition, evolution of ecosystems, climate and seawater chemistry, and interpretation of geophysical fields and seismicity. We use modern approaches and methods and advanced instrumental facilities. The Earth Science Institute consists of two, Geological and Geophysical research divisions, which descend from the formerly independent Geological and Geophysical institutes of the Slovak Academy of Sciences, both founded in 1953.
