Regional geological investigations and 1:500 000 mapping in North-East Greenland

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


    North-East Greenland is the last major area that remains to be geologicaIly mapped in the programme of regional mapping at a scale of 1:500000. In 1988 a three-year field mapping programme was initiated aimed at regional geological studies and geological mapping in the area between 75°N and 78°N. The southern third of this region (75°-76°N) is included on the map at a scale of 1:250000 by Koch & Haller (1971), and the n0rthern part forms part of a map at a scale of 1:1 000000 (Haller, 1983). However, the region as a whole has previously only been studied on a reconnaissance basis with limited ground control, and the published maps make extensive use of aerial photograph interpretation.
