GEUS Nuuk

​Small boats for fishing, Nuuk 2004. From a hunting society to a modern knowledge-based society. Hunting and fishing are still important for many Greenlanders.
GEUS Nuuk brings knowledge about Greenland’s geology closer to Greenland. Through education and dissemination GEUS Nuuk is working to strengthen the local knowledge. GEUS’ work in Greenland covers all aspects of geology and its relevance to society. Our work areas also include water resources. At present, however, the office’s primary focus is energy resource, mineral resources, nature and climate.
The presence of oil, gas and other energy resources requires the proper geological environments and conditions. The exploration of Greenland's geology for energy resources is an interdisciplinary discipline.
Glaciologists and researchers measure climate parameters and the melting of the Inland Ice. Through international research collaborations, scientists are able to shed light on problems that concern mankind.
 
Mineral resources are formed by geological processes and different types of minerals are linked to special geological environments. Greenland’s geology contains several known mineral deposits.
The exploration of Greenland and Greenland’s geology is full of fascinating stories – about Earth’s creation, about a treasury of minerals, about breathtaking nature and alarming changes in climate.
GEUS publishes both popular journals and books and business related publications. Some of the researchers’ scientific work is presented in GEUS’ own series.
Analysis of mineral resources supplies, scarcity problems with shortages and their value chain from exploration to production.
