We kindly invite to participate in Doctoral School Geoplanet, co-organised by IGS PAS
The Institute of Geological Sciences is a part of the Division III of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
History of our institute reaches 1956. We conduct basic geological investigations concerning the origin and formation of rocks and minerals, evolution of selected orogens and reconstruction of ancient environments. Disciplinary areas of research interests include sedimentology, Quaternary geology, isotope geochemistry (especially geochronology), mineralogy, petrology, tectonics, stratigraphy and hydrogeology, also paleontology .
The Headquarters of the Institute is in Warszawa.
Scientific units of the Institute are research groups residing at Research Centres - in Kraków, Warszawa and Wrocław - along with Doctoral Studies section, laboratories, libraries and the Geological Museum.

|Title||Genetic insights into the social organization of Neanderthals|
|Magazine||Nature 610: 519-525|
Here we analyze the genetic structure of a unique Neanderthal taphocenosis in Chagyrskaya Cave (Altai Mountains). We found the group of 11 individuals to be a closely related family that roamed in the area around 59–51 thousand years ago. The mtDNA and Y-chromosome DNA reveal the low genetic diversity of the population and underrepresentation of males. Actualistic comparison with modern hominid populations allows perceiving those Neanderthals’ genetic structure in a similar way as that of modern mountain gorilla, an endangered subspecies. Distribution of the genetically-confirmed bones of the same individuals within the sedimentary sequence points toward strong post-depositional disturbances at the site.

|Title||High-K calc-alkaline to shoshonitic intrusions in SE Tibet: implications for metasomatized lithospheric mantle beneath an active continental margin|
|Magazine||Contributions to Mineralogy and Petrology, Volume 176, article 85, 7 Oct 2021|
High-K calc-alkaline to shoshonitic suites are widespread and generally volumetrically small but provide key information on magmatic mantle-crust interactions. Limited work has addressed the multi-stage formation of relatively high-volume high-K to shoshonitic rocks. A newly identified, Late-Cretaceous to Early-Cenozoic high-volume high-K to shoshonitic association (ca. 28,000 km3) is described, from the southeastern Himalayan–Tibetan orogen.

|Title||Inter-laboratory characterisation of apatite reference materials for chlorine isotope analysis|
|Magazine||Geostandards and Geoanalytical Research, Volume 45, Issue 1, March 2021, p. 121-142|
Here we report on a set of six apatite reference materials (chlorapatites MGMH#133648, TUBAF#38 and fluorapatites MGMH#128441A, TUBAF#37, 40, 50) which we have characterised for their chlorine isotope ratios; these RMs span a range of Cl mass fractions within the apatite Ca10(PO4)6(F,Cl,OH)2 solid solution series. Numerous apatite specimens, obtained from mineralogical collections, were initially screened for 37Cl/35Cl homogeneity using SIMS followed by δ37Cl characterisation by gas source mass spectrometry using both dual-inlet and continuous-flow modes.

|Title||Damaged Speleothems and Collapsed Karst Chambers Indicate Paleoseismicity of the NE Bohemian Massif (Niedźwiedzia Cave, Poland)|
|Magazine||Tectonics, 10 February 2021|
In low to moderate seismic regions, where earthquake effects are rarely preserved in the geological record, caves can shield them from erosion
Speleoseismological research in Niedźwiedzia Cave revealed five events of cave damage between 320 and 21 ka
Based on ground motion models, the probable seismic source of damage within the cave is the Sudetic Marginal Fault
