Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland Bulletin 17 - 2009


Review of Survey activities 2008

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

This Review of Survey activities presents a selection of 19 papers reflecting the wide spectrum of activities of the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland, including field-based, laboratory and remote sensing studies.

The Survey's activities in Denmark are illustrated by ten articles covering the following topics: a marked earthquake, the potential for geological storage of CO2, oil geology, fingerprinting of sand, Quaternary geology and groundwater.

Activities in Greenland are dealt with in eight papers on mineral and petroleum exploration, the bedrock geology below the Greenland ice sheet, applied glaciology and climate development.

The survey also carries out many projects outside Denmark and Greenland. This bulletin includes a description of a multinational project on landscape development in Brazil.
