Eastern North Greenland 1993-1995 - a new 1:500 000 mapping project

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter in report


    The Geological Survey of Greenland (GGU) initiated in 1964 a 1:500000 mapping programme to produce a general overview of the onshore geology of all the ice-free areas of Greenland. So far 10 of a total of 14 planned map sheets have been published, and one additional sheet for which field work has been completed is under compilation. Most of Greenland is therefore now covered by map sheets of this series and only three areas remain to be covered: in North-West Greenland (sheet 6), in eastern North Greenland (sheet 9) and in East Greenland (sheet 11). Eastern North Greenland (map sheet no. 9; Fig. 1) is the target of the present project, with planned field work from 1993–1995. The first season (1993) was used for logistical preparation and geological reconnaissance in advance of the more intensive field work in the two following seasons (1994–95).
