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

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


    The third and last year of a systematic field mapping programme in eastem North Greenland was carried out from June to August 1980. The work concluded the field investigations for the 1:500 000 map sheet, while in addition reconnaissance investigations were carried out to the south of the planned map sheet boundary at 81°N latitude (fig. 3). As an integrated part of the mapping, general geological investigations were included in the research. As in the previous two years the logistic back-up for the expedition was arranged in co-operation with a surveying group from the Geodetic Institute, Copenhagen, who established ground control data for new topographical maps of North and North-East Greenland.
