W.E. Davies, hans arbeide i Nordgrønland og hans systematiske kortlaegning af de istidsgeologiske aflejringer / Anker Weidick, Peter R. Dawes.

Title: W.E. Davies, hans arbeide i Nordgrønland og hans systematiske kortlaegning af de istidsgeologiske aflejringer / Anker Weidick, Peter R. Dawes.
Translated title: W.E. Davies, his work in North Greenland and his systematic mapping of the geological deposits of the Ice Age.
Author(s): Weidick, Anker.
Dawes, Peter R.
Date: 1999.
Language: Danish.
In: Grønland. (1999.), Vol. 47(7-8) (1999)
Abstract: Area attracted interest during Cold War, as route from Russia to rescue facilities. Experts brought in surveyed glaciers and cold conditions, including ice-free coast in North. Results led to Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratories, Corps of Engineers (CRREL). Davies was applied geophysicist and geologist. He investigated cavities in Greenland rock besides carrying out helicopter-based geological surveys leading to large-scale contoured maps. His work showed exploitable zinc deposits. Before his death in 1990, Davies left his geological sketches (100 000 km²) to GGU.
Notes:
