Apart from a brief visit by s in , no geologist came to Skaergaard again until , when there was a new British East Greenland Geological Expedition (Deer, ). The main purpose of this expedition was to sample the intrusion by several diamond drill holes: a deep hole in the Hidden Zone and several shorter holes specifically. In late September of I will lead an expedition to photograph the incredible landscapes of the Scoresby Sund fjord system on the remote East Coast of Greenland. Greenland is an incredible place to inspire the imagination and fuel your photographic desires.

Sailing from Reykjavik, Iceland, we travelled north across the fabled Denmark Strait on a rare voyage that deeply explored Scoresby Sund, the world’s largest fjord system, located deep in the Arctic on the wild and isolated East Greenland coast.

  The distribution and movements of polar bears (Ursus maritimus) in the Northeast Water (NEW) area (NE Greenland) were studied from 28 May to 31 May , using satellite n 28 May and 17 June satellite-linked radio transmitters were attached to eight adult females in the NEW area between approximately 79° and approximately 80°30′N. The Scoresby Sound (Sund) on Greenland’s east coast is the largest fjord system in the world, and the major focus of our exciting photography cruise. Scoresby Sound pierces East Greenland for nearly 70 miles. Numerous fjords radiate from the sound—the longest is miles long—and extend to the edge of the inland ice cap.

The first three seasons of geological fieldwork in the Scoresby Sund region (–) were based on ice-strengthened expedition ships fitted with helicopter platforms that transported the entire group of scientific and support personnel to and from the working region.

During each of the three field seasons, the Report on the 1970 Geological Expedition to Scores by Sund functioned as floating bases. Report on the geological expedition to Scoresby Sund, East Greenland.

THIS paper deals with some investigations of the Quaternary geology of the Scoresby Sund region, north-east Greenland, carried out by the author in the summers of and for the Geological.

Surrounding the settlement of Ittoqqortoormiit, at the mouth of Scoresby Sund in North-East Greenland, is the Liverpool Land Terrain—a geological terrain that records evidence of subduction to ultra-high pressures (depths of over km). East Greenland is an outstanding example of a passive continental margin of the type characterized by voluminous basaltic activity such as is common to the North Atlantic margins, but is also found in many other areas.

It is divided into three provinces on the basis of geology, structure and morphology. This paper is a study of Holocene glacimarine sedimentation in inner Scoresby Sund, East Greenland ().Scoresby Sund (70–72° N) is the largest fjord system in the world, covering an area of 13, km -flowing outlet glaciers draining the Greenland Ice.

Far north, hidden behind grim barriers of pack ice, are lands that hold one spellbound. Gigantic imaginary gates, with hinges set in the horizon, seem to guard these lands. Slowly the gates swing open, and one enters another world where men are insignificant amid the awesome immensity of lonely mountains, fjords, and glaciers.
