The Northern Margin of Greenland from Baffin Bay to the Greenland Sea

  • Peter R. Dawes
  • John S. Peel

Abstract

Greenland, with a surface area of about 2,186,000 km2, is the largest island in the world. It 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.
