Image-data from Storeelv, Motzfeldt Sø, South Greenland

Research output: Book/ReportReport (publicly available)


The Motzfeldt Centre (1273 +- 6 Ma, figure 1) is one of the major central complexes in the Gardar Province of alkaline igneous activity (Tukianinen, 1988; McCreath et al. 2012; Tukiainen 2014). The Motzfeldt Sø REE deposit, part of the Motzfeldt centre, shows significant Ta-Nb enriched zones in altered syenite and minor pegmatite and diorite dykes, and high grade REE intersections that are related to pegmatite intrusives at depth (Sørensen & Kalvig 2011; EURARE 2015).

Joint research between the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) and the Korean Institutes of Geoscience and Mineral Resources (KIGAM) has been conducted in the Motzfeldt Sø area with the objectives of evaluating the geology in the Storeelv area.

In preparation to the joint 2015 field season in the area, a small project was established focusing on utilizing available image-data for 3d-map products (terrain model, orthophotos and 3d-mapping) in a small area in the Storeelv area (Figure 1). The map products were meant as an aid to the field geologist as well as a founding stone for future work in the area.

The purpose of this report is to describe available archive image-data and the newly collected image-data, the processing of this data and the thereof derived data products.
