Geology of Greenland Survey Bulletin 183 - 1999

Review of Greenland activities 1998

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

This is the third 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 eight articles, introduced by a directorial review for 1998 and followed by a list of publications in English 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 the main Greenland projects carried out during 1998. A range of topics is touched on from geological and geophysical studies of the Archaean to the Quaternary and associated mineral and petroleum deposits. Several papers analyse the consequences of climatic change on the environment.
