Abstract

The recent study of the basement margin to the Nuussuaq Basin, West Greenland, by Jess et al. (2019) illustrates the problems introduced by extracting thermal histories from thermochronology data without taking into account the constraints provided by geological evidence. Their interpretations are incompatible with numerous aspects of the geology of the region, and as a result their conclusions are not valid.
