EuroGeoSurveys (EGS) members have a broad expertise and experience on applied Earth Observations (EO) to geohazards, georesources exploration, mining and environnment impact assessment. EU co-funded projects such as Terrafirma, Doris, SubCoast, Evoss, PanGeo, Lampre, etc. have successfully exploited the most advanced EO technologies to detect, map, monitor and model geohazards that are threatening European territory.

The Earth Observation Expert Group under EGS is working towards the implementation of long term in-situ observation systems where EO data can be benchmarked; and the delivery of harmonized pan-European information on geohazards. These products and services will be served through EGDI and work in support of the priorities of the Group on Earth Observation (GEO) and especially the Global Earth Observing System of Systems (GEOSS) in the framework of EC’s Copernicus initiative.
