      A major transgression took place in East Greenland in late Permian times. The resulting marine basin can be traced over km, from Jameson Land in the south to Wollaston Forland in the north. More than m of limestone, evaporite, shale and sandstone were deposited in mainly shallow marine and hypersaline lagoonal by: Greenland is located between the Arctic Ocean and the North Atlantic Ocean, northeast of Canada and northwest of territory comprises the island of Greenland—the largest island in the world—and more than a hundred other smaller islands (see alphabetic list).As an island, Greenland has no land boundaries km of coastline.

The magmatic and metamorphosed rocks of the Precambrian shield as well as the ones of the Caledonian fold belt are mostly very hard.

Nevertheless, during many million years after the Caledonian orogeny, they were worn down to lowland near sea level, but after strong uplift in the lower Tertiary, they are now able to withstand erosion for quite a while, thus forming the.
