Review of Survey activities 2011

Edited by Ole Bennike, Adam A. Garde and W. Stuart Watt

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 Survey's activities in Denmark and surrounding areas are illustrated by 11 articles covering petroleum geology, groundwater geology, geomorphology, marine geology, geothermal energy, seismology and monitoring of an underground gas storage.

Activities in Greenland are covered by five papers dealing with mineral and petroleum exploration. Two other papers describe the Survey's monitoring of the Greenland ice sheet and the testing of an automatic earthquake detection method on data from Station Nord, North Greenland.

The Survey's international activities are the subject of two papers: one dealing with petroleum geology in Vietnam, one with agrominerals in Tanzania.
