The geological group

The descent of geological research in Israel

The geological group for generations is made up of us. A handful of types who loved the land, the land, the sea, the spaces, the imagination and curiosity paved their scientific path and shaped the Israeli geological narrative. The documentation project combines the personal stories that build us as a geological group.
