GEUS has a long tradition for carrying out geological fieldwork in remote and inaccessible areas of Greenland, and has accumulated a high level of experience and knowhow with respect to such activities. Over recent years field safety education of expedition members has become formalised and a system of training courses has been developed.
Although the training programme is dedicated to GEUS’ purposes others may clearly benefit from the system, and participants from other organisations are welcome in case of surplus capacity.
Every year GEUS sends off 50-100 persons to the field in all areas of Greenland, thus GEUS has the capacity to equip a large number of persons appropriately for expeditions work.
The equipment section in Rødovre arranges for freight of cargo and ensures that all formalities is in place.
