Abstract

The area north of Greenland is one of three areas off Greenland where an extension of the continental shelf beyond 200 nautical miles, according to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) article 76, may be substantiated. However, acquisition of the technical data required for a submission to the
Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (CLCS), which include geodetic, bathymetric, geophysical and geological data (Fig. 1), poses substantial logistical problems due to the severe ice conditions. More information on the Danish Continental Shelf Project is available on www.a76.dk.
The LOMROG II cruise was organized in cooperation with the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat and the Canadian Continental Shelf Project.
