Marine Geosciences

For sensible use of its natural resources such as building materials, metals, geothermal heat and oil- or gas reservoirs, knowledge of the geology of the seafloor is a prerequisite.

Within the team of our partner Iceland GeoSurvey, a large group of earth scientists has built, in the last decades, a highly specialized knowledge base about the acquisition and interpretation of marine research data.

Some of Iceland GeoSurvey’s projects include consultancy to the authorities on the definition of the continental shelf outside 200 nautical miles, participation in researches on oil and gas in Northern Iceland, and consultancy on exclusive licenses for research and extraction of carbohydrates.

In collaboration with Iceland GeoSurvey, GSE provides the following marine geoscience surveying and interpretation services:

- Marine geology and mapping- Sediment research- Gravimetry- Magnetic measurements- Seismic reflection- Seismic refraction- Multibeam echo soundings
