Network for mapping of mineral and groundwater resources
The main purpose and expected outcomes of this network activity were:
The activities consisted of two workshops in connection with network activity: the first in Belém, Brazil, and the second in Aarhus, Denmark. These consisted of scientific discussions followed by technical tours to relevant institutions and field sites. The focus of these workshops was to establish a long-term Brazilian-Danish research collaboration within geological mapping, mapping, and characterization of mineral resources as well as mapping and assessment of groundwater resources. Separating the workshops into a Brazilian and a Danish part ensured mutual familiarity with the vastly different research and working environments. In addition it allowed the partners to identify common interests and problems in the first workshop and following up on these in the second.
