Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland Bulletin 28 - 2013


Review of Survey activities 2012

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

This Review of Survey activities presents a selection of 17 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 nine articles covering Miocene geology, groundwater geology, marine geology, geological mapping, seismology, disposal of radioactive waste and the use of satellite radar data to detect elevation changes.
Activities in Greenland are covered by seven papers dealing with mineral and petroleum exploration. One paper describes lineament mapping and another describes the Survey's monitoring of the Greenland ice sheet.
The Survey's international activities are the subject of a paper dealing with titanium minerals in Cameroon.
