Science / project plan

Disko and Nuussuaq is one of the few areas in Greenland where active oil seepage is well documented. Fieldwork in 2016 will be carried out to visit potential leads and prospects to document geological risks and assess logistics for new drilling and geological and geophyiscal studies. The fieldwork will include sampling key formations and visiting areas to analyse key structures. The excursion will include visiting areas by boat, followed by helicoptor flights to more difficult to reach areas and collect new oblique stereo photographs in key areas.

Tasks: flying for 3D photogeology, stratigraphic and structural investigations.
