Niels Henriksen, W. Stuart Watt

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


    GGU started work in the Scoresby Sund fjord complex of East Greenland with a reconnaissance expedition for two months in the summer of 1967. The expedition had the aim of sailing throughout the whole fjord complex to study the weather, ice and terrain conditions as well as the geology in the area in preparation for larger scale operations in the forthcoming years. The expedition was based on a cutter that sailed throughout the whole fjord complex, from the gneiss area in the north, to the south where gneisses are overlain by Tertiary basalts.
