Geology of Greenland Survey Bulletin 186 - 2000

Review of Greenland activities 1999

Edited by Peter R. Dawes and A.K. Higgins 

This Review of Greenland activities, the fourth issued by the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS), contains 11 scientific articles, introduced by a directorial review for 1999 - The year in focus. A review of Greenland publications concludes the volume and this includes a 1999 listing of publications issued in the Survey-s own series and those scientific and semi-popular papers written by its staff and coworkers released in international outlets.

The scientific articles report on the main projects carried out in 1999. These were widely spaced and on all sides of Greenland stretching from 81ºN in the north to the southern tip at 60ºN. The topics touched on range from geological mapping and stratigraphic studies of Archaean to Quaternary rocks, economic assessments of mineral and petroleum deposits, as well as an airborne geophysical survey in West Greenland. Three papers report on field work dealing with the impact of climatic change on the environment.
