Inwhen GGU began the geological mapping program atscale in East Greenland, the existing topographic maps were limited tomaps of the region from 72°N to 76°N and a few map sheets from the Scoresby Sund region (70°N–72°N).

East Greenland is an outstanding example of a passive continental margin of the type characterized by voluminous basaltic activity such as is common to the North Atlantic margins, but is also found in many other areas.

It is divided into three provinces on the basis of geology, structure and morphology. Report on the Geological Expedition to Scoresby Sund, East Greenland Greenland] Published by Copenhagen Geological Survey of Greenland (). The wealth of new observations and data accumulated between and during regional mapping by the Geological Survey of Greenland and other organizations has radically changed our understanding of virtually all aspects of the East Greenland segment of the orogen extends for km between 70°N (Scoresby Sund) and 82°N (Kronprins Christian Land).

Svalbard is today the official name of the group of islands including Spitsbergen that were placed under the sovereignty of Norway by the Treaty of Paris in II.

Outline of the geology The migmatites under study are situated in the Scoresby Sund area, which forms the southernmost part of the East Greenland Caledonides. The Caledonian Report on the 1970 geological expedition to Scoresby Sund belt,extending over more than km from Kronprins Christian Land (82 N) to the Scoresby Sund (70°N), follows the margin of the Precambrian shield area of East Greenland.

After dinner, the staff on board brought out a birthday cake resplendent with sparklers. A gale force nine storm had kicked in.

Plates of cake slid up and down the table. Join your wooden schooner Opal as guest crew in East Greenland in July and spend an action packed 8 days exploring the vast Scorseby Sound fjord system in East Greenland. By flying into this almost uninhabited region from Reykjavik, you can start your voyage deep in the Article Circle at 70 degrees latitude.

Enjoy wilderness walking ashore with tundra flowers and wildlife. Subsequent expeditions inand completed the field-work arid led to the publication by GGU of geological maps atof the whole area with Mesozoic sedi- ments lying between Kong Oscars Fjord and Scoresby Sund ("N).

In. Surrounding the settlement of Ittoqqortoormiit, at the mouth of Scoresby Sund in North-East Greenland, is the Liverpool Land Terrain—a geological terrain that records evidence of subduction to ultra-high pressures (depths of over km). Systematic compilation of names began aboutinitially with the names given by William Scoresby Jr., and subsequently broadened in scope to include the names proposed by all expeditions to northern East Greenland.

The author has participated in 16 summer mapping expeditions with the Survey to northern East Greenland. If you want to experience a polar region on a wooden sailing ship and only have a limited time, then flying out from Iceland to Greenland, Scoresby Sound at latitude 71 degrees north gets you deep into the Arctic Circle to begin your action packed 7 days expedition.

The distribution and movements of polar bears (Ursus maritimus) in the Northeast Water (NEW) area (NE Greenland) were studied from 28 May to 31 Mayusing satellite n 28 May and 17 June satellite-linked radio transmitters were attached to eight adult females in the NEW area between approximately 79° and approximately 80°30′N.

On the 6th SeptemberI boarded the expedition vessel m/v Sea Spirit with Poseidon Expeditions. Sailing from Reykjavik, Iceland, we travelled north across the fabled Denmark Strait on a rare voyage that deeply explored Scoresby Sund, the world’s largest fjord system, located deep in the Arctic on the wild and isolated East Greenland coast.

Far north, hidden behind grim barriers of pack ice, are lands that hold one spellbound. Gigantic imaginary gates, with hinges set in the horizon, seem to guard these lands.

Slowly the gates swing open, and one enters another world where men are insignificant amid the awesome immensity of lonely mountains, fjords, and glaciers. --Louise Boyd, photographer, Lands that Hold One Spellbound is.

The Scoresby Sound (Sund) on Greenland’s east coast is the largest fjord system in the world, and the major focus of our exciting photography cruise. Scoresby Sound pierces East Greenland for nearly 70 miles. Numerous fjords radiate from the sound—the longest is miles long—and extend to the edge of the inland ice cap.

SCORESBY SUND Revered by many as the most beautiful fjord system in the world, Scoresby Sund is definitely the most extensive. The sound was named by William Scoresby Jr., a whaler, scientist and man of the cloth, who was famed for mapping more than miles ( km)of Greenland’s coastline.

In late September of I will lead an expedition to photograph the incredible landscapes of the Scoresby Sund fjord system on the remote East Coast of Greenland. Greenland is an incredible place to inspire the imagination and fuel your photographic desires. In partnership with National Geographic Expeditions.

PONANT invites you to discover the east coast of Greenland during a new day expedition cruise on board L’Austral, and venture into an extremely remote part of the world, source of fascination to generations of explorers.

From Kangerlussuaq, your ship will set sail south, before reaching the east coast of Greenland, known for its wild. This source in most likely comes from the Scoresby Sund area of SA43 (Fig. 2, part A). Maps of iceberg distributions affecting Icelandic waters (Iceland Meteorological Office,) indicate that the major source areas for icebergs are Scoresby Sund and further north along the Northeast Greenland coast.

These icebergs might well. After I complete Wrangle Island I will head back to Australia and onto Greenland where I will lead a ship based expedition to Scoresby Sund on the East coast of Greenland.

Petrov and Yury Tarbeyev. As some of you are already aware in September and October of next year (), Daniel Bergmann and I are conducting two back-to-back landscape photography expeditions to the Scoresby Sund fjord system on the remote East Coast of Greenland.

I have been meaning to formally announce both of these expeditions here on my blog for many. KNUD RASMUSSEN'S EXPLORATION OF S.E.
