The Department of Geology and Geoenvironment is one of the nine Departments of the School of Science at NKUA and is located at the Panepistimiopolis (University Campus), Zographou, Athens, Greece. The Department is a dynamic organization with a large history in geological studies covering a broad spectrum of the geo- and environmental sciences. It is divided into the following six Divisions: (i) Mineralogy and Petrology, (ii) Historical Geology and Paleontology, (iii) Geography and Climatology, (iv) Geophysics and Geothermics, (v) Dynamic, Tectonic and Applied Geology, (vi) Economic Geology and Geochemistry. The geological setting of the country of Greece provides a natural laboratory for the training of Geologists. It is worth noting that a number of foreign universities and other organizations organise field trips to Greece signifying the unique geological heritage of the country. The Department is operating two museums, (i) the Mineralogy and Petrology Museum, and (ii) the Paleontology and Geology Museum. Both museums have old and rare collections of international and national significance. The museums are providing an important service to education of students and the general public with special focus on school children.
