Geological investigations began in the late nineteenth century in this region, which was generally accessible by ship except in the worst ice years, and the region became the main focus of the long series of Danish geological expeditions to East Greenland led by Lauge Koch from to.

The area of East Greenland around Scoresby Sund, Kong Oscar and Kejser Franz Joseph Fjords is the largest ice-free area in Greenland. It also has incredible geodiversity, with basement rocks as old as three billion years, an almost complete sedimentary record of the last byrs and huge volumes of flood basalts from the splitting of the Atlantic.

Inpetroleum geological activities were continued in East Greenland in order to increase existing knowl- edge on the sedimentology and biostratigraphy of the Upper Permian - Mesozoic.

B) The Scoresbysund-area in East Greenland The Scoresbysund area has a long and varied Earth history, which spans almost 3 billion years.

Simplified, the geological framework can be subdivided into six parts, on top of which then comes the ice age. In time, there were about 5, settlers in Greenland.

The official records indicate that two sizable Norse settlements had been founded in fjords on the southwestern coast of the island. Other smaller ones were located on the same coast as far north as present day Nuuk. In and –, the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland undertook mineralization investigations during geological expeditions to central East and North-East Greenland, with particular focus on major regional faults, thrusts, and detachment zones (Jensen,a, ; Pedersen, ; Stendal and Wendorff, ; Pedersen and.

Methods of Geological Investigation These may be divided into two main groups: the surface investigations and the subsurface investigations.

A. Surface Investigations These include preparation of topographic maps (if these are not already available) using the normal mapping techniques. In fact all field surveys begin with the preparation (or.Coordinates The Skaergaard intrusion is a layered igneous intrusion in the Kangerlussuaq area, East GreenlandIt comprises various rock types including gabbro, ferro diorite, anorthosite and granophyre.

Discovered by Lawrence Wager in during the British Arctic Air Route Expedition led by Gino Watkins, the intrusion has been important to the development of key concepts in igneous petrology.In Greenland, the ice age is not over yet: it is still 85% covered with ice.
