Confidental until 31.12.2003. Geological mapping of a planned extraction area for hard rock aggregates has been carried out at Gulstø, Bremanger for EUROVIA. A number of hand-specimens were collected and thin-sections of these rocks were subsequently examined under the microscope.
The international nuclear emergency exercise Barents Rescue took place in the vicinity of Boden in Northern Sweden between the 12th and 20th of September 2001. The Gamma Search Cell part of the exercise was designed to test the abilities of car-borne and air-borne measuring systems to quickly locate and characterise radioactive sources hidden in the countryside.
This report describes the final results from the project: Sedimentation, tectonics and uplift in Vesterålen. Phase 1 - Localizing near-shore faults and Mesozoic sediment basins, run by the Geological Survey of Norway (NGU) as a joint project with Statoil. Norsk Hydo and Enterprise Oil Norge Ltd.
The Geological Survey of Norway, as a sub-contractor to the University of Bergen in the European Union's project COSTA (Continental Slope Stability; EVK3-CT-1999-00006), has performed a coring cruise with FF"Seisma" to the site of the 1996 slide in Finneidfjord. The main objective of the COSTA project is the assessment of continental slope stability along the European Continental Margin with respect to natural processes and human activity.
The Geological Survey of Norway is in the process of making out an inventory of hard rock aggregate deposits in coastal Norway. This report contains a catalogue of Norwegian coastal quarries at present in production and potential production areas along the coast of southern Norway. 9 million tons of aggregates were exportet to Europe in 2000 and ca. 2 million tons was used in the offshore industry (continental shelf).
In June, 1997 and July, 2000, two separate helicopter geophysical surveys were carried out - one over an area in the vicinity of Gran, and the second over an area immediately west of Hurdalsjøen. The purpose of the surveys was to provide geophysical information for improved geological mapping.
In August, 1998 and July, 2000, helicopter geophysical surveys were carried out over an area of about 560 km2 immediately west of Hurdalssjøen and the Garder- moen airport. The purpose of the surveys was to provide geophysical informa- tion for improved geological mapping. The data were collected by The Geological Survey of Norway (NGU) personnel and processed at NGU. A combined total of 2780 line-km of VLF, radiometric, and magnetic data were acquired using a nominal 200-m line spacing.
The investigation and inventory of natural stone in Ethiopia has been a subject within the Ethionor Mineral Resource Program, a cooperation between the geological surveys of Ethiopia (GSE) and Norway (NGU). In this report, a selection of Ethiopian natural stone deposits are presented, varying from Precambrian marbles and granites to Tertiary and Quaternary volcanic rocks.
The results presented here are based on samples collected by the author during ODP Leg 170, 16.October - 17.December 1996, and subsequent analyses at the laboratories of the Geological Survey of Norway, Trondheim, Norway.
Ïn December, 2000 and March, 2001, helicopter geophysical surveys were flown over three areas in the vicinity of Østersund, central Sweden. The purpose of the surveys was to provide geophysical information for mineral exploration. The data were collected and processed by The Geological Survey of Norway (NGU). A combined total of about 2830 line-km of electromagnetic (EM), very low fre- quency EM (VLF), radiometric, and magnetic data were acquired using a nominal 200-m line spacing.
In June, 2001, a helicopter geophysical survey was flown over an area in the vicinity of Storsjö, central Sweden. The purpose of the survey was to provide geophysical information for mineral exploration. The data were collected and processed by Geological Survey of Norway (NGU). A combined total of about 1690 line-km of magnetic, very low frequency EM (VLF), and radiometric data were acquired using a nominal 150 m line spacing.
