Gallery 5: Jyttes Havn and Charcot Havn

Jyt­tes Havn and Char­cot Havn


Jyt­tes Havn is one of the most beau­tiful natu­ral har­bours in the area, as even the well-tra­vel­led polar sail­or Arved Fuchs would agree. A litt­le hike up on the hills makes it clear why.

Char­cot Havn, a bit fur­ther south, offers fasci­na­ting geo­lo­gi­cal varie­ty: a wealth of mari­ne fos­sils that is quite unex­pec­ted and uni­que, on this level at least. By the way, if you want to read more about the fos­sils, then you will find good resour­ces here: Lar­sen et al (2003): Stra­ti­gra­phy and sedi­men­to­lo­gy of a base­ment-onlap­ping shal­low mari­ne sand­stone suc­ces­si­on, the Char­cot Bugt For­ma­ti­on, Middle–Upper Juras­sic, East Green­land and Sur­lyk (2003): The Juras­sic of East Green­land: a sedi­men­ta­ry record of ther­mal subs­i­dence, onset and cul­mi­na­ti­on of rif­ting.
