During the last six many years, the sector of geophysics has skilled speedy improvement. Seismic tools, magnetic reviews, hydrology and atmospheric sciences have extended due to a growth within the computing device sciences and dimension ideas. The frontiers of geophysics have additionally increased, now together with examine at the polar components, either Arctic and Antarctic. a majority of these occasions are basically mirrored within the 60-year-long historical past of the Institute of Geophysics, Polish Academy of Sciences. This quantity describes the main in demand achievements, the background of analysis and likewise the long run strength of the Institute of Geophysics PAS. It describes measurements in quite a few tasks, equipment of studying medical information, and final yet now not least the folk who've pushed this examine in lots of medical initiatives.
