Excursie Helgoland 2017

Afdeling Noord Nederland (“KNGMG Noord”) organiseert elke maand van oktober t/m april  een aardwetenschappelijk getinte lezing, met een meerdaagse excursie als afsluiting van het seizoen. De lezingen vinden plaats in het hoofdkantoor van de NAM, Schepersmaat 2, in Assen.

KNGMG Noord is an active subdivision of KNGMG, targeting members residing at some distance from The Hague, in particular in the provinces Groningen, Friesland and Drenthe. Each year from October to April we organise monthly lectures about a broad range of earth scientific topics, with a multi-day excursion closing the season.

The lectures take place at the NAM office (Schepersmaat 2, Assen), usually on the first Tuesday of the month.

KNGMG members are very welcome to attend our lectures! If you like to do so, please register in advance by sending an e-mail to
