The three years reconnaissance mapping programme for the 1:500 000 map sheet Frederikshåb Isblink - Søndre Strømfjord (Allaart et al., 1977,1978) was completed during the 1978 summer season. This summer's activity was concentrated in the area between Evighedsfjord and the northem boundary of the map sheet at latitude 66°45'N, and west of longitude 51°30'W (fig. 26). The area north-east of the Sukkertoppen Iskappe was reconnoitred during the summer of 1969 (Eseher et al., 1970). The area around

The mapping team in 1978 comprised two geologists based on the GGU cutter J. F. Johnstrup; periodic reconnaissance with Jet Ranger and Bell 204 helicopters was undertaken. The guidance of J. Watterson in the area around Itivdleq and Kangerdluarssuk fjords was greatly appreciated.
