Review of Survey activities 2014: Introduction

Flemming G. Christiansen

    Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial


    Over the past decades the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) has gradually changed from an or-ganisation that focussed on basic mapping and research to one that provides knowledge for discussions and decisions within society and the political system in Denmark and Greenland. Knowing the importance – and in some cases controversy – of many of these decisions, it is of the utmost importance that such input is based on high-quality and well-documented research that is objective, transparent and easily accessible. Such input to important public and political discussion is also refl ected in this issue of the Review of Survey activities that contains a total of 20 four-page papers, eight on Den-mark, eighth on Greenland and four on broader themes. In addition to many classical research summary papers, there are also examples of activities giving input to impor-tant political decisions on energy such as shale gas and car-bon capture and storage technology, use of and exploration for mineral resources in Denmark and Greenland, climate (monitoring of the Greenland ice sheet) and foreign policy (international boundaries).
