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."
