Identifying the processes leading to todays’ climate and environment in Denmark and North Atlantic
GEUS is examining onshore, offshore and coastal geological conditions and processes in order to help manage Danish natural resources. This work includes mapping the climate of the past and examining the possible impact of the climate of the future on society. Work also includes monitoring the Greenland ice sheet and glaciers, as well as earthquake research and monitoring.
Research and consultancy services for sustainable management of the Danish coastal zone, as well as studies of historic variation in sea currents.
Providing solid knowledge about the geological structure of Denmark and land-use assessment.
Monitoring of the Greenland ice sheet, surveys of the interplay between ice and climate and of the distribution of sea ice over long time periods.
Research and consultancy on the impact of climate change on the water cycle.
Mapping the climate of the past and examining climatic and human impacts on the environment.
Monitoring climate-sensitive parameters such as groundwater levels, leaching of pollutants to groundwater, and glacial melt.
Mapping the effect of climate change on the water cycle and sea levels, as well as climate impacts on the environment thousands of years ago.
Earthquake monitoring in Denmark and Greenland, as well as consultancy about earthquake risks and advice on collapses of coastal cliffs and mountainous terrains.
