Field Trip

 The Field Trip on the 30th of April has been given a new title

Geological and geophysical properties of the Faroe Island Basalt Group 

Short summary

This field trip will highlight the large scale geological variations in the Faroe Island Basalt Group (FIBG), set in relations to the observed geophysical heterogeneities from the Malinstindur and Enni formations. The architecture of the various lava types and flows will be studied in the field, and short talks on the geophysical interpretations of these based on scientific onshore wells will be given on site.
Structural features, fracture zones with associated dyke intrusions and sills will also be visited along with some of the volcanoclastic sedimentary beds.

Two geoscientists from Jar­feingi, Uni ┴rting (Geologist/petrologist) and Uni Petersen (Geophysicist) will lead the field trip.

If the weather is good (which we hope), the trip will take us to some spectacular scenic stops on the high roads ideal for postcard pictures.

Due to highly variable weather conditions in the Faroe Islands may we please advise you to bring waterproofs and warm clothing. We will be looking at the geology from the roadside, but will be standing outside the buss for longer periods of time. 

We will rendezvous at the bus outside Hotel Hafia between 8.00 and 8.15 am and outside Hotel F°royar (Kerjalon) between 8.30 and 8.45 am on Monday the 30th of April. We are aiming to be back in Tˇrshavn around 4.00 pm for participants to have a chance to rest and be ready for the Ice-Breaker at the Nordic House at 6.00 pm.

The charge of the field trip will be DKK 1000. Please register online.
