Sedimentological evolution of a fault-controlled Early Paleocene incised-valley system, Nuussuaq Basin, West Greenland

Abstrakt

The Nuussuaq Basin of West Greenland is a Late Cretaceous-early Tertiary extensional basin, related to the opening of the Labrador Sea and Baffin Bay. An extensive Early Paleocene valley system was incised following a period of active faulting and uplift of the basin. The paleovalley system is exposed along the south coast of the Nuussuaq peninsula and includes five broadly synchronous valleys that embrace sandstones assigned to the Quikavsak Member. The valleys are 1-2 km wide and up to 190 m deep.
