Mesozoic deposits crop out in East Greenland mainly between lat. 70°25′ and 76°20′N. The sediments were deposited in fault-bounded basins having a north-northeast trend. The faulting began during the late Paleozoic, but block faulting persisted through the Mesozoic and into Tertiary (tensional faulting) time. In the Mesozoic, tectonic activity occurred particularly during the Late Jurassic. During much of the Mesozoic, the area formed the margin of the northern Atlantic sea of that time.
