Systematic 1:500 000 mapping in the Peary Land region, North Greenland

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


    The second season of a three year systematic field mapping programme in the Peary Land region, north of latitude 81°N and east of longitude 40° W, was carried out from June to August 1979. The aim of the programme is to produce a 1:500000 map sheet of eastern North Greenland and to investigate the geological framework of the region. As in 1978 the expedition was carried out in cooperation with a surveying group from the Geodetic Institute, Copenhagen, who mainly worked in the region west of Peary Land establishing ground control points for a new topographic map of North Greenland.
