All great natural incidents show how small we humans really are when geological processes take effect, and just how important geological knowledge is in order to predict earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, landslides and other geological events which affect humanity.
Norway is a land which is especially rich in natural resources such as oil, gas, metals, minerals and building raw materials. Exploitation of our geological resources in an environmentally responsible way is a prerequisite to a secure future for us and the rest of mankind.
