Geology of Greenland Survey Bulletin 180 - 1998

Review of Greenland activities 1997 - 1998

Edited by A. K. Higgins and W. Stuart Watt 

This is the second volume of Review of Greenland activities. It follows the tradition of Report of activities of the former Geological Survey of Greenland that was issued for 30 years until 1996.

The bulletin contains 24 articles, introduced by the Director-s review for 1997, followed by a list of publications on Greenland issued in the Survey-s own series and those scientific papers written by its staff published in international outlets.

The articles report on onshore and offshore field work and on the main Greenland projects carried out during 1997. Several current research reviews are also included. A wide range of topics is touched on from geological and geophysical data on early Archaean to Quaternary rocks, to offshore geophysics and oceanography, with several papers dealing with petroleum and mineral exploration.
