organisation profile

The Geological Survey of Sweden, SGU, established in 1858, is the national central government agency responsible for the investigation of the geology of Sweden. The Division of Marine Geology has been carrying out work in the regional mapping of the seas around Sweden and elsewhere since the beginning of the 1970s. The marine geological mapping programme also comprises a special geochemical subprogramme concentrating on natural and anthropogenic substances. For operation at sea SGU has a twin-hull, sandwich constructed survey vessel, S/V Ocean Surveyor. The capacity for submarine investigations has led to SGU being contracted to carry out a large number of commissioned projects in connection with, e.g. harbour and channel constructions, tunnelling, laying cables, search for dumped ammunition and various environmental monitorings based on sediment studies. A number of research projects have been carried out by people at the Division of Marine Geology and several projects are in progress, many in cooperation with other agencies and universities.
