Establishment history 1945 
Basic activity directions  The scientific activity of the Institute of Geography is based on two major scientific problems:

1.Development regularity of Azerbaijan's nature; investigation of natural resources and of their ecogeographical properties; economic and geographical problems of organization of the industry, social infrastructures and territorial accommodation of the population; constructive and regional problems of the republic; processes of desertification

2. Investigation of ecological conditions of the Caspian Sea and factors causing its level fluctuation.

To solve these two problems of complex scientific activities of the Institute consists of the following: the comprehensive study of the geographic layer stability, of development, regularities, formation, and volatility on the regional scale; to restore the natural conditions of past geological periods; estimation of geomorphologic construction of the territory as one of the resource forming factors; landscape evolution; genesis of climate and its forecasting; methods of struggle with desertification; rational utilization of natural resources; regional forecasting the changes of environment under the influence of global and anthropogenic factors; settling of population of Azerbaijan and territorial organization of production; hydrometeorological conditions of the Caspian Sea; ecogeographical problems. 
Main scientific achievements  Written and published by III monographic volume: Constructive Geography of Azerbaijan.

In connection with a land reform the system and new technique nature - agricultural geographical demarcation of Azerbaijan is designed. Is drawn up two new maps to scale 1:50000.

The explanatory dictionary 5000 geographic namings existing on terrain of modern Armenia up to XX of century is drawn up. On the basis of researches the fitting these terrains the Azerbaijan people is demonstrated.

Restored quantity indicators of climate existing on terrain of Azerbaijan in Absheron, Turkan and Baku terms. Increasing of tendencies of the cooling and aridity in the climate has been identified within the indicated time.

On the basis of researches perennial changes of climate is established, that in last 100 years on terrain of Azerbaijan temperature of air was increased approximately on 1,000C, quantity of precipitations, except for large cities, was increased on 7-8%.

Established enhancements of activity of villages on terrain of the Azerbaijan Republic, the new scale estimation of villages on ball system is drawn up, the measures on strife with negative consequences are offered.

On the basis decoding of new aerospace images the maps (1:100 000) geographic area, type, cause, degree and forecast of a desertification of the Azerbaijan coastal area are drawn up, the measures of strife with a desertification are prepared.

The forecast silting up and intensity of dynamics of the Azerbaijan water storage basins is given.

For parameterization of exchange in a system the atmosphere and sea non-stasionary model of a drive atmospheric slice was developing.

The correlation between fluctuation levels of the Caspian sea and solar activity is established, the semiempirical formula is obtained and the long-range forecasting of a level of the Caspian sea is given.

The physicsal and geographical model for the forecast distribution of contaminants in the Caspian sea is developed under different hydrometeorological conditions.

The complex the hydrometeorological atlas of the Caspian sea is compounded.

For this period the Institute of Geography prepares  following atlases and maps:

The Agroclimaticale Atlas of the Azerbaijan Republic, 124 maps

The atlas of natural environments and resources of the Azerbaijan Republic, 300 maps

The complex hydrometeorological Atlas of the Caspian sea, 274 maps.

The atlas paleogeographical cards shelf’s of Eurasia in Mesozoic and Cenozoic, 129 maps.

Land-geochemical map of the Azerbaijan Republic (1:500 000).

The pleysonogical of a map for terrain Azerbaijan (1: 50 000).

The historical-geographical map titles of the Azerbaijan parentage on terrain of the Armenian Republic (1: 250 000)
