      Location and extent of the alkaline rocks of the Manîtdlat Member and associated units (Type 0 and Stordal centre) within the Vaigat Formation, West Greenland. The lithological log shows only the relevant middle part (c. one-fourth) of the total volcanic stratigraphy. Lithologies distinguished on the log are thin subaerial lava flows Cited by: [1] We present a paleomagnetic record of the C27n‐C26r (∼ Ma) geomagnetic polarity reversal (GPR) sampled in two separate lava sequences in the Vaigat Formation, west Greenland flood basalt province. The two profiles, distanced 16 km apart, consist of 45 and 35 sampled lava flows of which 31 respectively, record transitional field by:

      Lithostratigraphy comprises the categorization of sediment/rock strata based on lithology (e.g., color, texture, grain size, and composition), physical properties (seismic character, nature of well log response, magnetic susceptibility), and structural sedimentary inventory.

Lithostratigraphy of the Tertiary Vaigat Formation on Disko, central West Greenland Download PDF EPUB FB2

The c. Ma rift-related Paleocene volcanic succession in West Greenland comprises voluminous picrites (the Vaigat Formation) overlain by flood basalts (the Maligât Formation).

This bulletin presents the lithostratigraphy, geology and geochemistry of the Paleocene volcanic rocks of the Vaigat Formation on Disko and the major part of the Nuussuaq peninsula.

The Vaigat Formation in this area is up to m thick and composed mainly of olivine-rich picrites, with ten formally defined members and 20 informal units.

Flood basalt flows occupy an even greater area offshore, extending from 68°N to 73°N [10] and covering a minimum area ofkm by:   The Vaigat Formation forms a shield-like structure centred on western Nuussuaq and northern Disko, where it is up to m thick despite erosion; it wedges out in eastern Nuussuaq and north–central Disko but thickens north of Nuussuaq to at least 5 km thickness on Ubekendt Ejland (Drever, ; Larsen, ).Cited by: The Qiseib Formation consists mainly of a reddish, fine- to coarse-grained, cross-bedded sandstone with thin interbeds of shale.

Petrographically, these sandstones are quartzarenitic. The Qiseib Formation tested oil from an 18% porosity sandstone in the North Darag discovery in the northern Gulf of Suez.

The upper Cretaceous–Tertiary Nuussuaq Basin in West Greenland contains a many kilometres thick succession of siliciclastic sediments and overlying volcanic rocks.

The subaerial picrite lavas of the upper Vaigat Formation continue further east across the basin and are later overlain by the flood basalts of the Maligȃt Formation, observed over much of the central margin and damming the basin in the Palaeocene forming the lacustrine deposits of the Atanikerluk Formation (Dam et al., ).Cited by: 8.

Definition of a group may be contentious. Definition of a group may be contentious. Some authors look for common lithological characteristics, e.g. the Lias Group is dominantly argillaceous but contains limestone- sandstone- and ironstone-dominated formations.
