Abstrakt

A marine geological coring program was undertaken during the ‘Marine Basic’ cruise of the R.V. Sanna in the Godthåbsfjord Region May 10th – 18th 2012.
Potential coring sites had been selected prior to the cruise and based on seismic lines collected during the 2004 ‘Galathea3’ expedition and on para-sound data from the 2007 ‘Merian’ cruise in the Kangerssuneq IceFjord. The seismic lines were used to identify suitable sedimentary basins with undisturbed sediment sequences.

A total number of 17 sites had been identified as potential coring sites (Fig 1). The coring catalogue was thus extensive (Appendix 1) but compiled to allow for a flexible planning during the cruise. Sites 1 – 8 were selected based on data from seismic lines. The selection of Sites 9 –17 was based on geological judgments of where undisturbed and high sedimentation rate deposits could be expected.

The marine geological group received with gratitude the invitation from the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources to take part in the cruise. The flexible planning of the day-to-day program by cruise leader Thomas Juul Pedersen enabled the group to obtain the many valuable cores which we gratefully acknowledge.
