Zahájen mezinárodní geologický kongres v Oslo

The Opening Ceremony was a grand experience of music, rhythm, illusions, brief and succinct speeches, and a handful of beautiful video postcards from the Nordic countries.

His Majesty King Harald V emphasized the importance of the earth sciences as he officially opened the 33rd IGC Wednesday evening. At the same time he encouraged further development and pointed to the strong tradition of geology in Norway.

In his welcome speech President Arne Bjørlykke pointed out that the geosciences are vital to a society demanding high quality research and knowledge transfer.

After the stage entertainment in a packed plenary hall, where the audience numbered approximately 4000, the ceremony proceeded outside.
