Greenland issued this stamp in 2005 to commemorate the completion of
the survey of Greenland by the Geological Survey of Denmark and
Greenland which began in 1965, and produced
14 geological maps. The map on the stamp is from a detail from the map
of northeastern Greenland, sheet number 10. Colors are used to indicate geological
features: gray for fjords, white for glaciers, and other colors for
various types of rocks.
The following features are named on the map: Polhem Dal
(76° 34’60N 25°19’W), Nahr valsund, Kap Oswald, Kap Elisabeth, Kap
Harry, Arloem, Solitærbuo, Maria (island), Penderpyra, Lomingbua,
Bastronen, Eannet, and a couple I can not decipher.
