Marine Geology

The Marine Geology team at NGU conducts mapping and surveys of the Norwegian coastal and sea areas in order to contribute to the overall national goal of a clean and abundant water, and help to ensure responsible management of marine and geological resources.

Through its database, the Marine Geology team aims to provide access to geological knowledge of the ocean floor . A large part our work in marine geology is collaboration with researchers and institutions nationally and internationally, with projects financed in whole or in part by entities such as research councils, industry and the European Union.  The MAREANO program receives an earmarked state grant for the mapping of the Norwegian Sea and the Barents Sea.
