Department’s scientifi c research throughout the 2013/2014 academic year has been realized through the scientifi c projects of the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports and international scientifi c projects. Employees of the department dealing with hydrogeology participated in the realization of project Dynamics, protection and exploitation of Croatian groundwater supplies which has been an ongoing project since 2008. The research was carried out in the Croatian lowland and karst areas in order to gain higher understanding of the dynamics of groundwater, determining the geometry of aquifers, their hydraulic properties, relationships with surface water, of ground water resources and its quality and the design of possible ways of abstraction of groundwater for the purpose of its optimal use and protection.
Realization of the international FP7 project GENESIS – Groundwater and dependent Ecosistems: NEw Scientifi c basIS on climate change and land-use impacts for the update of the EU Groundwater Directive (FP7-ENV-2008-1) has been in process from 2009 until 2014. This project investigated the processes and transport of contamination in the unsaturated and saturated zone of Zagreb’s aquifer system, the infl uence of groundwater and surface water in direct hydraulic connection, as well as the impact of
climate change on the quantitative and qualitative state of Zagreb’s groundwater in the future.
From 2009 to 2014, scientists from the fi eld of engineering geology participated in the bilateral Croatian-Japanese project titled
Risk Identifi cation and Land-Use Planning for Disaster Mitigation of Landslides and Floods in Croatia. Within this project, an international team of scientists conducted research in Croatia regarding the assessment and mitigation of hazards and the risk of landslides and fl oods in Croatia.
One of the main goals of the project was to analyse the geohazards and the development of guidelines for the application of the project results in the system of physical planning and civil protection. The purpose of the project was the contribution to sustainable development through the application of appropriate measures defi ned by the physical planning documentation. Scientists from the department have conducted project activities on the testing areas in the city of Zagreb and the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County.

The most noteworthy project by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports in the fi eld of structural geology and tectonics was CROTEC - Structural analysis of recent and neotectonic activity in Croatia in which the scientists of the department focused on the reconstruction of structural materials of Velebit and the tectonic evolution of the central part of the external Dinarides.
Stratigraphic and geomathematical research of petroleum-geological system in Croatia, project by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports, was the main focus in the fi eld of geology of hydrocarbon reservoirs and geomathematics. The research was focused on the supplementation of knowledge of petroleum geological systems on the Croatian territory. New breakthrough in these studies was achieved using modern geostatistical and geomathematical models on sample reservoirs in the western part of the Sava graben, but also elsewhere in the Croatian part of the Pannonian basin. Scientifi c breakthrough was also achieved in the research of source rocks in the Dinarides as well as in the Pannonian Basin.
International project in the fi eld of petroleum geology, aftended by scientists of the department, was the project CGS Europe. The project placed emphasis on networking of all European institutes involved in research of geological storage of carbon, the development of a database that will serve to inform the scientists and the general public about this technology, the development of mobility as well as joint planning of research through the creation of a permanent organization for the whole of Europe.
The projects titled Microfossil communities in carbonate sediments of karst Dinarides and Neogene terrestrial environments of the Pannonian basin and karst regions, whose leaders are employees of the department, have led to new insights on biostratigraphy and paleoecology of ostracode fauna in the Pannonian Basin in Croatia, on lithostratigraphy of quaternary deposits in the lowland areas of Zagreb, on the stratigraphy and of Neogene terrestrial sediments of the Pannonian Basin and the Croatian karst areas as well as new fi ndings about palaeobiogeography of calcareous algae and foraminifera in the Jurassic and Cretaceous carbonates in the karst Dinarides.
A significant number of studies and research projects has been done in collaboration with various organizations, companies, public institutions and institutes such as INA Industrija nafte, Hrvatske vode, HEP, Elektroprojekt, Program Sava, Hidroinženjering, City of Zagreb, Dvokut, Nacional park Paklenica, Žito, Unijabeton Municipality of Voćin, Hidroing, Vodoopskrba Bjelovar, Papuk, Tekija and many others.
