North of the fiftieth parallel the depths diminish towards the north-east, two long submarine ridges of volcanic origin extend north-eastwards to the southwest of Iceland and to the Faeroe Islands, and these, with their intervening valleys, end in a transverse ridge connecting Greenland, through Iceland and the Faeroe Islands, with Northwestern.

The geological map sheet of Kilen in scale covers the south-eastern part of the Carbon-iferous–Palaeogene Wandel Sea Basin in eastern North Greenland. The map area is dominated by the Flade Isblink ice cap, which separates several minor isolated landmasses.

Wegener’s expedition diaries encompass the Danish Danmark Expedition (–), in which he participated at the age of 26 as an expert for aerology, the Danish North Greenland Expedition together with Johann Peter Koch (–), which aimed to explore the Greenland ice sheet. AT THE MEETING of the First International Symposium on Arctic Geology held in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, January 11th to 13th,a number of instructive, interesting, and original papers were presented, and essentially all of them are printed in the pages of The Geology of the Arctic volumes I and II.

The idea of calling such a meeting was conceived by several members of the Alberta Society. The Holocene marine limit is up to m in West and North Greenland, and up to m in East Greenland (Funder, ). Most of the relative uplift took place in the Early Holocene, and therefore most of the raised marine deposits date from 10 to 6 ka BP, as Cited by: The geology of the region, which still today represents exploration frontiers, is illustrated by a series of geophysical and paleogeographic maps, which are based on the integrated knowledge from.

North Greenland is situated south of the Eurasia Basin and southwest of the Fram Strait, close to the recent plate boundary between North America and Eurasia and the sheared continental margin ().The Lena Trough, the oceanic part of the Fram Strait, connects the spreading systems of the Arctic Ocean and the North Atlantic, and thus forms part of the plate boundary between the eastern.

Lower Cambrian deposits are found throughout the Soviet Union and Mongolia (Fig. They occur over the entire Siberian Platform, much of the East European Platform, and widely in the fold belts bordering the southern Siberian Platform (the Altay-Sayan Fold Belt, Mongolia—Okhotsk Fold Belt), Kazakhstan, Central Asia, and the by: Full text of "Manual of the natural history, geology, and physics of Greenland, and the neighboring regions: prepared for the use of the Arctic Expedition ofunder the direction of the Arctic Committee of the Royal Society, for the use of the expedition ; published by authority of the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty" See other formats.

Many archaeological finds, and saga narratives and legends in more recent years, testify to the long history of settlement in the harsh wilderness of the Ilulissat region, where hunting and fishing have always been the basis of life.

Clastic dykes are tabular bodies of clastic material, mostly fine sand, cutting across sedimentary formations or, more rarely, volcanic and granitic rocks (Allen, ; Peterson, ).

They rank among the earliest described deformational sedimentary structures.

Schematic constructive plate margin. A) Cross-section view. B) Map view of symmetric spreading. C) Map view of asymmetric spreading. Project aims The surface of the Earth is made of many rigid pieces known as plates.

The margins between these plates are either constructive (adding material to the plate), destructive (removing material from the plate), or conservative (material is neither.

In previous descriptions of the Silurian stratigraphy of North Greenland, Sulcipentamerus and Harpidium were usually lumped together (e.g. Hurst).
