Simplified, the geological framework can be subdivided into six parts, on top of which then comes the ice age. Geological mapping atscale in a country the size of Greenland is a demanding task and the remoteness of many regions and the climate makes the mapping an expensive undertaking too.
The first map sheet at this scale was published in and since then substantial proportions of West Greenland and central East Greenland have been covered. This textbook is designed to aid the student in geological map interpretation. The book starts with basic concepts such as dip and strike, and progresses through a variety of exercises based on folds, faults and unconformities, up to and including the interpretation of Geological Survey Maps.
