Koło Naukowe Geologów Studentów Uniwersytetu Jagiellońskiego (Scientific Organisation of Geologists Students of the Jagiellonian University (SOGSUJ) is an organization associating ambitious students interested in deepening their geological knowledge.

The organization operates at the Institute of Geological Sciences of the Jagiellonian University.

The organization runs scientific and popular programs are available, such as scientific conferences, trips abroad to the farthest corners of the world, or workshops for youth in the field of Earth science.

History

Scientific Circle of Geologists Students of the Jagiellonian University has been operating at ING UJ since the seventies.

In recent years, the Circle has been proud of the organization of such events as the National Conference of Geological Science Circles (2007) or the First International Student Geological Conference (1st Students' International Geological Conference, 2010), which has become a cyclical event, and members of the Circle actively participated in its subsequent annual editions in Latvia, Ukraine and the Czech Republic.

In 2014, we had the honour to organize the jubilee 20th European Congress of Geologists EUGEN (European Geoscience Students Network). The congress is held every year in a different country, thanks to which we had the opportunity to be in Slovenia, Belgium and Croatia.

Since 2017, the organisation has been arranging a student scientific conference - Geology Days. Previous editions have been a huge success, which is why this year's event is addressed to a wider group of students and is international. The main assumption of the event is to present the effects of scientific activity of students from various institutions and to establish cooperation between universities.

During the year, KNGS UJ also conducts field trips. During the semesters, these are usually areas of Poland (Pieniny, Świętokrzyskie Mountains, Izerskie Mountains). During the summer break, foreign trips are organized - Iceland, Ukraine, Morocco.

The organisation, in cooperation with ING employees, also conducts activities promoting science among children and young people (annual participation in the Science and Art Festival, Małopolska Night of Scientists, visits to schools, Children's Day at ING UJ).

Geology Days

Geology Days is a student scientific conference organized by the Scientific Organisation of Geologists Students of the Jagiellonian University for 3 years.

It is a cyclical event addressed to students, PhD students and geology enthusiasts from various parts of Poland and the world.

The last edition was international. Once again, young scientists had the opportunity to share the effects of their scientific work, acquire new skills or learn about the geology of interesting regions of Poland.

Geology Days focus primarily on the scientific conference (including paper and poster sessions), but there were also workshops and trips aimed at expanding theoretical and practical knowledge.

Information on this event is available on the FB website: https://www.facebook.com/DniGeologii/

 

This has been the case in previous years

Expedition of the Science Club to Morocco 2018

The expedition of the Jagiellonian University Students' Scientific Club Morocco 2018 was the second in a row, after last year's successful expedition to Iceland.

This time we decided on the southern part of Morocco, where the famous mineralogical and paleontological locations are located.

We visited places like Bou Azzer known for the minerals of cobalt, nickel and arsenic, Taouz and Mibladen, in which we searched, among others Vanadinite, Barite, Wulfenite, Kerrouchen famous for their excellent quality of agates and azurites.

We did not miss paleontological locations on our route, such as Alnif (which is the centre of trilobite search and trade), we also searched for brachiopods on Devonian reefs. We also saw clues of Jurassic dinosaurs near Imilchil. In addition to strictly geological and cognitive purposes, our goal was also to integrate the group and get to know the local culture.
