Gravity profiling across the Central Spitsbergen Basin

Awarded: NOK 50,502

The aim of this project is to produce geological profiles across the Central Spitsbergen Basin in Svalbard, by collecting gravity data and integrating it with existing seismic, borehole and geological data. From the integrated data the location of basins, structural heights and the geometry of the fault system will be analysed. The final geological profiles produced in the project are relevant for geothermal mapping of Svalbard and CO2 sequestration. The project will result in a master thesis and the data will be added to Svalbox.
