Natural resources and their use
Natural resources are elements and forces of nature whose use values people can utilize for their needs. The balance between the need of economic development of society and the exploitation of natural resources is an essential condition of preserving the landscape for future generations. These days, this balance is on the front burner of social awareness. The Czech Geological Survey helps to meet these social needs by research of mineral resources, groundwater and geoenergy both in the Czech Republic and abroad.
