Arctic explorations

The historical archive at Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) contains thousands of photos and films from past expeditions to Greenland. It is a historical documentation of the geological exploration of this large arctic country. Some of these recordings are digitized to make them available for a larger audience. It is tempting to say, that the present archive is the key to the past.

Niels Henriksen participated in geological expeditions in Greenland through 35 years. From these, he was in command during 25 years, to chart the geological mapping of Greenland.
