Review of Survey activities 2014


Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland Bulletin 33 - Review of Survey activities 2014.

This Review of Survey activities presents a selection of 20 papers reflecting the wide spectrum of activities of the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland, from the microscopic to the plate-tectonic level.

The Surveys activities in Denmark are illustrated by eight articles covering Palaeozoic stratigraphy, permeability of North Sea chalk, Quaternary geology, seismology, groundwater geology and an assessment of mineral raw materials.

Activities in Greenland and the Faroe Islands are also covered by eight papers. One deals with the completed Continental Shelf Project, three with mineral resources and exploration and three papers describe the Surveys monitoring of the Greenland ice sheet. One paper deals with applied glaciology in Kyrgyzstan, Greenland and Canada.

The Surveys international activities are the subject of three papers: two dealing with fingerprinting of heavy minerals in Labrador and Brazil and one dealing with carbon dioxide capture and storage in Europe.

Finally, one paper describes a new method to develop digital models, e.g. for geological outcrops, based on images taken with a handheld camera.
