    Seismic and gravity data held at the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) indicate the presence of aprominent seamount on the continental margin of southern Greenland. Seismic records show a steep sided high with complex internal structure. There are several proposals onthe nature of the high including it being adiapiric structure formed by clays or serpentinite and an uplifted block of pre-Cretaceous basement.
