About

IGEO was established on January 18th, 2011 following the CSIC 2006-2009 renewal plan proposing unification of research groups in Earth Sciences at a single institution in Madrid. Thus, IGEO brings together research groups that have been withdrawn from other joint institutes, such as the Institute of Economic Geology (IGE) and the Institute of Astronomy and Geodesy (IAG), and other groups from the Department of Geology and Volcanology of the National Museum of Natural Sciences (CSIC), together with Faculty staff from the schools of Geological Sciences,Physics and Mathematics at the UCM. We believe that working together with this concentration of expertise we can improve our understanding of the Earth system and interactions between the processes that have shaped, and continue to shape, its evolution. IGEO will carry out cutting-edge research from a multi- and interdisciplinary viewpoint in different lines of research related to Geology, Geodesy and Geophysics, with special emphasis on applied aspects aimed at solving current socio-economic problems such as Natural Hazards, Global Change and Geological Resources.
