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 (see, e.g., Haller, ).

The area of East Greenland around Scoresby Sund, Kong Oscar and Kejser Geological investigations in East Greenland. book 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. 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.
