The proposed ICDP project Drilling Active Faults in Northern Europe - DAFNE aims to investigate, via scientific drilling, the tectonic and structural characteristics of postglacial (PG) faults in northern Fennoscandia, including their hydrogeology and associated deep biosphere. Scientific advances in neotectonics, hydrogeology and deep biosphere studies are expected. Societal benefits include generating information relevant to nuclear waste disposal and exploitation of economic raw materials.
