Research work – of interdisciplinary character – carried out in the Museum of the Earth is strictly connected with the scientific elaboration of geological collections i.e. rocks and minerals (including meteorites), paleozoological and paleobotanical fossils, amber as well as other fossil resins and documents from the history of geological sciences.
Results of studies – apart from their scientific significance – are particularly important for the popularization programme conducted in the Museum. The scientific activity is also determined by the Museum’s service functions as well as cooperation with other scientific institutions from all over the world.
Significant number of studies carried out by employees of the Museum were presented in periodical Prace Muzeum Ziemi journal, issued since 1952. Until today, 50 volumes have been published.
