        However, after the Ice Age, the Earth, f to 6, BP, was much warmer than now, and perhaps there could have been farms and cities in southern coastal Greenland, now destroyed by the ice. In fact, when the Vikings settled there, during the Medieval Warm Period, it was somewhat milder than today/5(10). Greenland Current, surface oceanic current, a combination of polar sea surface drift, return flow of the North Atlantic Current, and Irminger Current waters. The East Greenland Current flows south along Greenland’s east coast, transporting large fields of ice, and then turns north into the Labrador current mixes with the warmer Irminger and Norwegian currents, creating excellent.

      Principles of Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology - by Anthony Philpotts January Greenland’s major physical feature is its massive ice sheet, which is second only to Antarctica’s in size. The Greenland Ice Sheet has an average thickness of 5, feet (1, metres), reaches a maximum thickness of ab feet (3, metres), and covers more than , square miles (1,, square km)—over four-fifths of Greenland’s total land area.

Ice fiords, hiking, heliskiing, small settlements, northern lights, and boat rides combine to make East Greenland a year round destination, and the main town Tasiilaq also acts as the gateway for adventurers on longer climbing, kayaking, Ice Cap, and mountaineering expeditions in the rugged backcountry.

The North Atlantic Igneous Province (NAIP) is a large igneous province in the North Atlantic, centered on the Paleogene, the province formed the Thulean Plateau, a large basaltic lava plain, which extended over at least million km 2 ( thousand sq mi) in area and million km 3 ( million cu mi) in volume.

The plateau was broken up during the opening of the North Atlantic. Note: Earth-Pages will be closing as of early July, but will continue in another form at Earth-logs. Where did all our water come from. The Earth’s large complement of H 2 O, at the surface, in its crust and even in the mantle, is what sets it apart in many ways from the rest of the rocky Inner Planets.
