The Geocryology Institute is a production structure located on the northern north-west side of Great Lakes expansion zone. It was originally introduced on October 22, 2015 as part of the timed quest called Great Lakes.[1]

A total of 210 assets and additional 4,100,000 Coin sm worth diagrams are needed to complete construction of the Geocryology Institute. This is equivalent to 210 Megabucks sm if one were to buy every asset instead of waiting to receive them from neighbors.
