Cyprus 2012

The Geological Survey Department was founded in 1950 as a specialized section of the Department of Lands and Surveys. In 1955 the Geological Survey Department became an autonomous Department. After the Islands’ Independence in 1960, it was placed administratively under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry.
At the end of the 1960’s, the Department was placed at the Ministry of Agriculture and Natural Resources with a wider mandate, placing under its jurisdiction hydrological and geotechnical research as well as the Mathiatis seismological station, which was later upgraded to a complete seismological network.
