The 'Davis Strait Drift' offshore West Greenland

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedings

Abstract

A large-scale, singular drift deposit has been recognised in the south-eastern part of the Davis Strait, offshore West Greenland. The contourite drift, here named the ‘Davis Strait Drift’, is interpreted to comprise sediments of Mid-Miocene to late Pleistocene age, but deposition is presumably inactive at present.
