    The crystalline complex which outcrops around the inner part of Nordvestfjord to the south of latitude 72°N, and around the Bjørneøer situated at the entrance to Nordvestfjord, was mapped by GGU in the summer of 1968 at a scale of 1:50 000. The following geologists participated in the mapping project (areas mapped by each geologist are given in brackets): J. D. Friderichsen, Copenhagen (SW Hinks Land and south of Flyverfjord); N. Henriksen, Copenhagen (valleys west and south of Flyverfjord and a zone of the western nunataks); A. K. Higgins, Copenhagen (as N. Henriksen); F. Kalsbeek, Aarhus (Bjørneøer and surroundings); F. Keller, Basle (NE of Nordvestfjord); E. Kirsbo, Copenhagen (NE Hinks Land) and A. Steck, Basle (NW Hinks Land and Charcot Land). The preliminary results of the mapping are presented in this paper together with a geological map on a scale of 1:500 000. In the coming years most of the participants will publish detailed accounts of their individual areas and geological map sheets on a scale of 1:100 000 will be published by GGU.
