Systematic 1:500 000 mapping and regional geological studies in central and western North Greenland

    Abstract

    The first season of the two-year field mapping programme in central and western North Greenland was carried out from June to August 1984. The investigations are a continuation of the 1978-1980 mapping programme in the Peary Land region, adjoining the present area to the east. One of the main aims of the regional geological studies in the present programme is the production of a 1:500 000 map sheet of the area between J. P. Koch Fjord (c.400W) in the east and north-easternmost Washington Land (65°W) in the west; the southem boundary of the map sheet is latitude 81°N, although the Inland Ice in most of the region forms the southern margin of the rock outcrop. A special source rock project (Christiansen & Rolle, this report), financed by the Danish Ministry of Energy, was fully integrated with the mapping programme.
