No. 482: South Greenland - Regional environmental baseline assessment for mining activities

Fritt-Rasmussen, J., Raundrup, K. & Mosbech, A. (Eds). 2022. South Greenland - Regional environmental baseline assessment for mining activities. Aarhus University, DCE – Danish Centre for Environment and Energy, 186 pp. Scientific Report No. 482 http://dce2.au.dk/pub/SR482.pdf

Summary

The Regional Baseline Assessment (RBA) for South Greenland identifies, describes and maps available information on geological and environmental chemistry background levels, biodiversity as well as human use and cultural heritage background information of the area. 

Based on the current information, an integrated spatial overlay analysis was compiled, which highlights areas with potential conflict zones between possible future mining activities and areas of biological, human and heritage values interest. 

The available information is presented and described on a general level in the report and supported by overview maps. The full data are given in NatureMap.gl and an integrated project-specific webGIS (rba.eamra.gl).
