Expert Group of the Geosciences Group

Report Author(s): Graeme Eagles (Germany), Fausto Ferraccioli (Italy), Detlef Damaske (Germany)

Summary of activities from 2020-22

The ongoing COVID pandemic severely curtailed activities of the ADMAP group in the 2020-22 reporting period. The main achievements were ongoing fieldwork and a number of new publications.

Meetings: The ADMAP group did not meet formally or informally in the 2020-22 period owing to restrictions related to the COVID pandemic. Online discussions have been continuing on ideas related to the concept of an ADMAP3 compilation, and future fieldwork programmes that might require international cooperation.
