Abstract
An aeromagnetic survey over Northern Greenland and the adjoining Lincoln Sea has been performed in the spring of 1997. This project (PMAP-CASE) is a joint programme of BGR (Bundesanstait fuer Geowissenschaften und Rohstoffe) and three Canadian government agencies under the umbrella of the Canadian-German Co-operation in Science and Technology. Closely spaced data were collected over an area of 3300 km square. The area flown in this survey is adjacent to the area covered in earlier Canadian surveys. It also links directly with a Germany project area in northern Greenland. Prime target of the project was to establish a link between offshore magnetic anomalies and structures and an onshore system of volcanic dykes and lavas in North Greenland sampled by CASE 2 for which Cretaceous-Tertiary ages have been determined, and to follow up the anomalies. The second part of the aeromagnetic survey is scheduled for the spring of 1998. The project PMAP-CASE will be completed with surveying the area - adjoining the 1997 survey area - north to the continental margin towards the Lincoln Sea Plateau (which is considered part of the Lomonosov Ridge). PMAP-CASE covers geophysical aspects of questions which are currently investigated in the more geologically oriented co-operative program CASE, which is also outlined in the present paper.
