Science / project plan

GEUS and Minestry of Mineral Resources (MMR) will undertake fieldwork in the Wollaston Forland area and collect data for a 1:100.000 thematic geological map focussing on the Mesozoic succession. Investigations include biostratigraphy using macrofossils and palynostratigraphy, sedimentology, porosity-permeability analysis of coarser grained units, provenance, structural geology etc.

  • Traditional fieldwork (2-3 member teams), mainly Wollaston Forland
  • Basecamp at Daneborg (2 logistical personnel)
  • 4 teams, 10-12 participants (geologists/scientists)
  • Full chartered helicopter
