Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland Bulletin 20 - 2010

Review of Survey activities 2009 

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

This Review of Survey activities presents a selection of 23 papers reflecting the wide spectrum of activities of the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland, from the microscopic to the plate-tectonic level. In addition, an obituary about the former director of the Geological Survey of Greenland (GGU), Knud Ellitsgaard-Rasmussen, is included together with a short overview of the history of GGU.

The Survey's activities in the Danish region are illustrated by six articles covering petroleum exploration, geothermal reservoirs in Denmark, a Miocene wave-dominated delta, radon problems and recent man-made nutrient changes in a lake. Three other articles from this geographical area describe applied marine geology, Quaternary stratigraphy and methods of mapping deep groundwater reservoirs.

Activities in Greenland and the Faroe Islands are covered by nine papers dealing with mineral and petroleum exploration and climate history, the influence of recent climate change on the Greenland ice sheet and current investigations related to extended continental shelf claims offshore Greenland and the Faroe Islands.

The Survey's international activities are the subject of four papers, dealing with Tanzania, Vietnam and China.

The last article describes a new method to analyse and present scanning electron microscopy data.
