East Greenland Caledonides, stratigraphy, structure and geochronology

Edited by A.K. Higgins and Feiko Kalsbek

The Caledonian orogen of East Greenland has been intensely studied over the last 30 years during a series of regional mapping expeditions. The orogen that extends between 70°N and 81°30´N in East Greenland, is now completely covered by five geological map sheets in the Survey's regional 1:500 000 series.
This collection of six papers includes two on aspects of Neoproterozoic and Lower Palaeozoic stratigraphy. Two other papers describe structural studies, one the geometry of the thin-skinned thrust belt in Kronprins Christian Land and the second the significance of the discovery of the Eleonore Sø and Målebjerg foreland windows. The remaining two papers report the results of geochronological studies.
