Record #18100:

Zur geologischen Erforschungsgeschichte Ostgrönlands / Lauge Koch.

Title: Zur geologischen Erforschungsgeschichte Ostgrönlands / Lauge Koch.
Translated title: The history of the geological exploration of East Greenland.
Author(s): Koch, Lauge.
Date: 1939.
Language: German.
Abstract: Starting with Scoresby in 1822, followed at long intervals by Koldewey, Ryder and then more frequent European expeditions, Koch catalogues major research efforts north of Scoresby Sound with their geological activities, increasing with improved travel techniques, but dependent on ice cover for duration of visit. Dog sledging weather was another factor, and Iceland horses could be used in increasing numbers in summer. Two theories were investigated: of ice-free Arctic in high latitudes - disproved - and of continental drift - of great and continuing interest.
