From 1979 to 2012, he conducted lectures and exercises in the field of Cenozoic geology, Geology of karst and GPR (Ground Penetration Radar) research methodology at universities: Łódź, Warsaw, Wrocław. Participant of numerous specialist courses, scientific schools, seminars, symposia and conferences organized by universities, scientific societies and research groups: Europe, Egypt, Russia, USA, Vietnam and Australia. Organizer of paleontological expeditions. Organizer of scientific conferences.
Main research areas: determining the age of Cenozoic formations, Tertiary and Quaternary palaeogeography, geomorphological and palaeogeographic maps, documentation of karst phenomena, research methodology and the use of GPR in geological, mining, engineering, geotechnical, hydrogeological, archaeological, environmental protection studies, forensics and for the needs of the military. The most important research works concern: karst sediments and the terrestrial microfauna of the Pliocene and Pleistocene, the age of brown coal, the underground world of the Tatra Mountains, Sudetes and the Kaczawskie Mountains and the Kraków-Częstochowa-Wieluń Upland.

He has conducted and conducts geological research for the needs of archaeological research.
He is a specialist (with 30 years of practice) in the field of GPR surveys. He conducted research on GPR: flood embankments, airports, flysch landslides in the Carpathians, lakes and retention reservoirs, cemeteries, churches (e.g. Cathedral in Wrocław, Cathedral in Frombork, Cathedral in Gorzów Wielkopolski, church in Ujazd, church in Krosno Odrzańskie) and various structures construction. He conducts training in the use of GPR equipment, GPR research design, research methodology and data interpretation, and the GPR documentation. He is the author of many publications in national and international scientific journals (see: www.kart-geo.eu )
Dr. Adam Szynkiewicz has been cooperating with Foundation Dar Światowida since 2004, when he for the first time agreed to do GPR research in the church on Ślęża Mt. In February 2006, he organized and participated in the historical GPR research at the Three Pyramids on the Giza Plateau, conducted by dr. Abbas Mohamed Abbas.
