GeoConnect³d – Promoting geoheritage and geotourism
June 22 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am
In Europe, there are endless geologic features with significant scientific, educational, cultural, and/or aesthetic value. These areas are commonly well-known by local communities, but rarely incorporated into geological models. GeoConnect³d is a cross-disciplinary project, funded under the GeoERA geo-energy theme, with a focus on providing relevant geological context for anyone interested in geology at surface and subsurface. This is being done through the structural framework model and annotated geomanifestations, which define any distinct local expression of ongoing or past geological processes. These manifestations, or anomalies, often point to specific geologic conditions and, therefore, can be important sources of information to improve geological understanding of an area.
