    This extended abstract briefly outlines the results of a study of the uplift history of the Jameson Land basin, East Greenland. The interpretation of the timing and magnitude of the uplift is based on a combination of geometric (basin configuration from seismic and surface data) and analytical data (maturity parameters, apatite fission track analyses, porosity, seismic velocity and zeolite minerals). All data are in accordance with an uplift between 1.5 and 3 km during the Tertiary.
