organisation profile

The Geological Survey of Israel (GSI), founded in 1949, is a government institute operating under the Earth Science Research Administration within the Ministry of National Infrastructures, and is involved in earth science research and development in the broadest senses, adapting itself to the changing needs of a small and dynamic country. The objectives of the GSI are: to document, study and conduct research in all aspects of the country's geology, to act as an advisory body to all government branches and major public and private enterprises, to maintain a national and regional earth sciences data base, and to maintain an analytical infrastructure.
The main fields in which the Geological Survey focuses are:
- Qualitative and quantitative hydrogeology;
- Stability of the infrastructure and earthquake damage;
- The Dead Sea - dealing with the existing situation and forecasts;
- Environmental processes and forecasting their effects;
- The paleo-climatic record and its significance for future evaluations;
- Potential and realization of natural resources.
