Mid-Norden project: Proposal for participation by NGU
The project aims to produce a modern geoscientific atlas and databank to be used in prospecting for mineral resources and in the evaluation of environmental and geochemical issues within a belt extending from W of Norway to the E border of Finland. The N and S limits of the project area meet the coast at Syv Søstrene and Stad respectively. The proposal includes ninve subprojects: 1) Data, 2) Bedrock geology, 3) Quaternary geology, 4) Marine geology, 5) Geophysics, 6) Geochemistry, 7) Metallogeny, 8) Industrial Minerals and 9) Environmental geology. Total costs are estimated to be of the order of NOK 53.000.000. The proposal assumes a time-frame of 1988-1993 but the dependence of subprojects 7) and 9) on the conclusions of the other subprojects several of which are also interdependent would make extension to 1994 or 1995 desirable. The proposal will be made available in both English and Norwegian.
