Geology of Greenland Survey Bulletin 191 - 2002

Review of Greenland activities 2001

Edited by A.K. Higgins, Karsten Secher and Martin Sønderholm

The Review of Greenland activities summarises the main operations carried out in Greenland each year by the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS). This volume contains 18 technical papers reflecting field projects undertaken in 2001, introduced by a directorial review. A list of the Survey's scientific publications on Greenland is also included.

The technical papers report onshore and offshore activities based on both ground and shipborne surveys and from widely spaced regions stretching from southern Greenland (60°N) to North-East and North-West Greenland (80°N). Topics include economic geology and regional mapping in the Archaean of the Disko Bugt - Nordre Strømfjord region, petroleum geological studies, marine geophysical data acquisition and interpretation, stratigraphy and sedimentology of Lower Palaeozoic to Quaternary successions, and climate change.
