British North-East Greenland Expedition

This 16-member team, largely from Lancaster University, led by Dr G. Halliday (Biological Sciences Dept), spent 2 months in the National Park area of NE Greenland, well N of Scoresby Sund, studying the botany, ornithology, mammals and lepidoptera. One group concentrated on what they called 'Norlund Land', and the Hochstetter Forland, where they climbed a variety of 1,500m peaks. A second group worked on Wollaston Forland, where some members climbed the Zackenberg.
