Their distribution and abundance were noted during Geological Survey of Greenland expeditions in –85, which visited virtually all land areas in the region, including nunataks and islands.

The foreland of the East Greenland Caledonides in North Greenland was mapped by the Geological Survey of Greenland in the late s. The geology is documented on theGeological Map of Greenland, sheet 8, Peary Land (Bengaard and Henriksen, ). On land, the occurrences of Mesozoic to Paleogene magmatic rocks are restricted to the northernmost part of North Greenland.

The Peary Land dike swarm is dated at ca. 82 and 86 Ma (Ar-Ar whole rock; Kontak et al., ) and ± Ma and ± Ma (U. The region targeted during the expedition, Kronprins Christian Land, lies between the Northeast Greenland Ice Stream to the south, and Peary Land to the north.

While both these regions have previously been targeted for exposure dating of glacier-eroded rocks (erratics and bedrock), Kronprins Christian Land has received relatively little attention.

Locality map of the studied sections. Abstract. Greenland, with a surface area of about 2, km 2, is the largest island in the is composed of a central depression, now totally filled by the Inland Ice, and a mountainous coastal “ice-free” zone forming 20% of the total area. Purposes. The two-year expedition was conceived and led by Ludvig Mylius-Erichsen, who had previously led the Literary Expedition to Northwest Greenland together with Knud Rasmussen in – The main target of the Denmark expedition was to map the last blank sections of the coastline of northeastern Greenland, between Cape Bridgman, near Robert Peary's easternmost.

The story of the last Peary expedition, which resulted in the discovery of the Pole and of the deep ocean surrounding it, is told in the present volume by Commander Peary.
