East Greenland and adjacent offshore areas

January 01, 2016


Paleogene rocks, comprising mainly thick sequences of flood basalts, crop out in two areas on the coast of east Greenland and adjacent inland areas: the Blosseville Kyst (688-718N), extending for approximately 600 km between Kangerlussuaq in the south, and Scoresby Sund in the north, and several separate outliers in the Gauss Halvø-Hold with Hope-Wollaston Forland area (738-758N) (Fig. 183). The offshore extension of this succession in the Irminger Basin has been investigated by seismic surveys and several ODP boreholes.
