The Research Institute of Geology and Geoinformation


Research Groups

*  2010.4.1 onward

In the third intermediate planning phase in the area of geological research, the following research projects are being managed by the Research Institute of Geology and Geoinformation. In order to achieve these intermediate research project goals, we are using a matrix approach where research groups handle basic and new seed research projects, and project research teams span across unit groups to handle project research. The main research groups handled by each research plan are as follows.

Improve accuracy of geological surveys and fundamental geological and geophysical maps for land and sea regions
