Geological Sciences constitute a major academic discipline. They provide crucial information to society about mineral resources and energy, ground-water availability, the evolution of the climate and natural hazards including tsunamis, landslides and earthquakes.

Stockholm is a leading center of geoscientific research in Sweden. Our research and teaching bring classical geology together with geochemistry and marine geology/geophysics. Research at the Department of Geological Sciences is strongly integrated with the interests of the Bolin Centre for Climate Research and the Stockholm University Baltic Sea Centre.
