Evaluation of an Arctic Ice-Free Land Site and Results of C-130 Aircraft Test Landings, Polaris Promontory, North Greenland 1958-1959

Description: Abstract: "Field investigations of an ice-free land area at Polaris Promontory, Hall Land in northwest Greenland were undertaken to determine if this area could support austere military aircraft operations. Detailed scientific observations of geology, meteorology, natural terrain features of the area were made, thorough investigations of the soil features and bearing strength were conducted, and an airstrip was prepared and marked. Successful test landings by a C-130 aircraft were made on the airstrip. Possible alternate airstrip sites were studied and conclusions drawn on the usability of such ice-free land sites for military activities."

Investigations of Ice-Free Sites for Aircraft Landings in East Greenland, 1959

Description: Abstract: "Thirty-three specific landing sites were investigated in the ice-free land area of East Greenland between Scores by Sund and Loch Fyne. Eight of these are considered suitable for emergency landings in summer by heavy cargo planes, and several more for light cargo planes. Several sites were investigated for the Royal Greenland Trade Department in the Scorebysund - Kap Tobin area. A 1550-foot airstrip was located on a gravel terrace in the Jaettedal, eight miles northwest of Kap Tobin, and a short strip requiring some construction work was located near Kap Tobin. An 11,500-foot airstrip was tentatively laid out on a gravel terrace at Storelv, near Moskusoksefjord. Utilization of several of these sites can add a significant safety factor to commercial or military aircraft operations in East Greenland. Reconnaissance observations verify the presence of abundant emergency sources of fresh water in East Greenland; analyses of 36 samples indicate water of good to excellent chemical quality."

Cordilleran Metamorphic Core Complexes and Their Uranium Favorability: Final Report

Description: From objective and scope: The objective of this report us to provide a descriptive body of knowledge on Cordilleran metamorphic core complexes including their lithologic and structural characteristics, distribution within the Cordillera, and their evolutionary history and tectonic setting. We also examine the occurrence of uranium in the context of possibility for uranium concentration.
