Abstract: The Quaternary deposits of Greenland consist of two generally separately treated units: the present ice covers (essentially the Inland Ice); and the sediment deposits of the present ice-free coastal areas. In order to link together the present information of the two areas, the results of the recent investigations of the inland ice are treated in order to furnish a background for the Quaternary history of the coastland. On the Quaternary history of the coastland, emphasis is placed on the glacial history, especially deglaciation during the Holocene. In connection with the Holocene history and the landscape features thus developed, a short account is given of the investigations of the present periglacial and other Quaternary phenomena (warm springs, sulfur mounds, meteorites).
