Kangerlussuaq sediments (Cretaceous to Palaeocene) overlain by Palaeocene
to Eocene basalts in Sødalen, around 7 km to the west of the Skaergaard
intrusion. The sediments here represent a succession of thinly interbedded
mud- and sand-stones believed to have formed in a rift-basin predating
the basalt volcanism. Note the overlying Lower Basalts and the cross-cutting
dike in the centre of the photo. The cliff is about 14 metres high. Photo
