About this book The mountains and fjords of Greenland preserve a record of nearly four billion years of Earth history - a story of mountain building, volcanic eruptions, primitive life and ice ages. During this vast period of time, through processes of continental drift, Greenland has journeyed from the southern hemisphere through the tropics.

Iceland is located in the North Atlantic Ocean between Greenland and Norway between 63°23´N to 66°30´N and between 13°30´W to 24°30´W. It is a landmass that is part of a much larger entity situated at the junction of two large submarine physiographic structures, the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and the Greenland-Iceland-Faeroes Ridge.
