Description:
The geological exp~orations of I,auge Koch, in Greenland, followed by the paleontological investigations of Gustaf Troedsson and Christian Poulsen,have resulted in a much clearer grasp of some of the problems of Ordovician and Silurian geology in American Arctic and Subarctic areas than was possible without the information thus obtained. N ow that it has been demonstrated that the Arctic offers a large field for geological exploration to persons properly qualified for such work, it may be assumed,that the next few years will show a corresponding further increase of our knowledge of Arctic geology. It has seemed desirable, therefore, to bring together some of the more salient facts regarding Arctic and Subarctic geology now known and to state some of the conclusions that apparently may be drawn from these facts. This is true especially of conclusions that are likely to prove controversial, since nothing is so likely to put an end to conclusions not warranted by the facts as the accumulation of additional facts, especially if additional facts are sought with the object of learning whether previous conclusions are warranted or not.
