Research in marine geology and geophysics, with special emphasys on the acquisition (in collaboration with the Dep. Marine Geology of the Geological and Mining Institute), processing and interpretation of multichannel reflection seismics (industry and deep seismics), high resolutoin single channel  – Chirp, Boomer and Sparker) to study the geology and marine resources of continental margins (incluing gas hydrates and hydrocarbons) and for the geological invstigation of coastal and shelf environments, in particular estuaries and "Rias".
