Summary
Abstract: Besides others, the aim of the marine gravity measurements of the ARK-V/3b
and ARK-VII/3b expeditions was to:
a) map the crustal structure of totally different geological units in a
region of close proximity,
b) map the sedimentary distribution and the western boundary of the Mesozoic
sediment basin of Jameson Land.

Sample rate was between 25 m and 150 m depending on ship's speed.

The following instrument was used: KSS 31/25 sea gravity meter.

The geographical coverage is as follows:
ARK-VII/3b, ARK-V/3b: 6000 km of marine gravity data covering the whole
Scoresby Sund and adjacent fjords.

Data are available on request, but with special arrangement.
