Early Archaean Processes and the Isua Greenstone Belt West Greenland


The 3.7-3.8 Ga Isua Greenstone Belt in West Greenland has been intensively studied by an international group of scientists in their search for Early Archaean processes. The work has been carried out under the Isua Multidisciplinary Research Project (IMRP) 1997-2001.

A Special Issue in the international journal Precambrian Research has been published in October based on talks presented at a Workshop of participants of the IMRP, held at the Harnack Haus Conference Centre of the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft in Berlin during 17-20 January 2002.

Senior researcher Peter W.U. Appel from The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) has edited the Special Issue together with colleges from Oxford University, UK and Vrije Universiteit, The Netherlands, and he has contributed to three articles in the volume.
