Exposure of the Cretaceous-Palaeogene sedimentary and volcanic succession at Annertuneq on the north coast of Nuussuaq. Below the conglomerate are unnamed upper Campanian turbidite slope mudstones. They are unconformably succeeded by Maastrichtian-Paleocene submarine canyon conglomerates and turbidite slope mudstones of the Kangilia Formation. The Cretaceous-Paleocene boundary is placed at 452 m a.s.l. The succession is topped by hyaloclastites of the Vaigat Formation. The mountain is about 1.3 km high. Photo: F.G. Christiansen.
