This issue of Review of Survey Activities, edited by A.A. Garde, Ole Bennike, Kristine Thrane and W. Stuart Watt, presents a selection of 24 papers reflecting the wide spectrum of current activities of the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland, from the microscopic to the plate-tectonic level.
The Survey's activities in Denmark are illustrated by 11 papers covering widely different subjects including groundwater management, pesticide monitoring, 3D urban geology, the regional Danish potential for geothermal energy, Palaeozoic stratigraphy from borehole logs, enhancement of oil production by injection of 'smart' water and glacial geology.
Activities in Greenland are illustrated by eight papers on Precambrian crustal evolution and mineralisation processes in South-East and northern West Greenland, fundamental magma processes in the Skaergaard intrusion, onshore and offshore seismological studies, and on long-term monitoring of the Greenland ice sheet and sea-ice variability.
International studies by the Survey are represented by two papers describing a large Nordic CO2-storage project and a pilot study of burial and exhumation along the eastern passive margin of Labrador and Newfoundland using apatite fission track analysis.
Finally, three papers describe new developments in the digital access to, and handling of Greenland-related geodata and presentation of a new smartphone- and tablet-based app for effective handling of geological and sample data during field work.
