Field activities in Greenland by the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) in 2001 were again many and varied. They included economic investigations of crystalline basement and sedimentary rocks in North-West Greenland, and a systematic mapping project combined with resource evaluation in the boundary zone of the Nagssugtoqidian and Rinkian mobile belts of central and southern West Greenland. In addition, studies of the Vendian to Lower Palaeozoic successions in North-East Greenland and of the Palaeogene sediments of central East Greenland were carried out, a major aeromagnetic survey was flown in central West Greenland, and investigations of Holocene lake sediments in southern West Greenland were continued.
