Bør Svalbard ha et lager for geologiske og geofysiske data på linje med fastlands-Norge ved NGU og kontinentalsokkelen ved OD?

UNIS, Store Norske og Svalbard Science Forum inviterer til workshop for å samle relevante aktører og diskutere hvorvidt og hvordan Svalbard bør systematisere og samle geologiske og geofysiske data i et lager på lik linje som det som gjøres på fastlandet (Norges geologiske undersøkelse) og offshore (Oljedirektoratet).

Alle forskere og institusjoner som kan bidra med erfaringer og ekspertise, eller som har aktiviteter på Svalbard inviteres til å delta.

Workshopen arrangeres i Longyearbyen 24. – 26. september.

Taking care of geological data and developing critical infrastructure for geoscientific research and education projects

The Svalbard Rock Vault initiative – taking care of geoscientific data from Svalbard

What happens when new geological or geophysical data is acquired on the Norwegian Continental Shelf? It is archived with the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate, which maintains a unique database, DISKOS, used by commercial companies and research institutes throughout.

Furthermore, all physical samples from exploration drilling are archived and therefore easily retrieved for further studies. Onshore Norway, the Geological Survey of Norway operates the national sample and core storage facility in Løkken. But what about Svalbard?

Critical geoscientific data has been collected onshore Svalbard for centuries, including coal exploration, petroleum exploration and research drilling. There is, however, no single place for accessing data and physical samples from these campaigns.

We have thus initiated a project, the Svalbard Rock Vault, which will hold a initial workshop in Longyearbyen from 24th to 26th of September.

The main objective of the workshop is to facilitate long-term collaboration between Svalbard-based, Norway-based, and international researches and institutions with respect to developing a comprehensive geological material archive on Svalbard, the Svalbard Rock Vault, while relying and improving upon existing infrastructure (i.e. SNSK’s facility in Endalen).

As a secondary objective it is the aim to catalogue relevant data sets and data types from Svalbard held by partner institutions, and identify to what extent these can be shared in a common platform of geoscientific data as a base for future research and educations projects.

Such a collaboration is likely to lead to enhanced scientific use of the present and future geological material, and is likely to proceed through completion of four main themes:

1. Mapping and categorizing existing material (drill cores, wireline data, virtual outcrops)
2. Systemizing material in a database respecting data confidentiality regulations
3. Providing access to geological material for research and education projects
4. Developing a long-term cooperation to develop new infrastructure and/or upgrade and maintain the infrastructure currently present in Endalen.

We envision the proposed steps as critical to achieving an internationally recognized archive of samples from Svalbard on Svalbard, allowing researchers to come to this international place and conduct cutting edge research in spirit as dictated by the Svalbard treaty.
