In Greenland, remains of the Caledonides can be found at the whole east coast, from the Scoresbysund in the south to the northeastern corner.

But those Caledonides are not the spectacular mountain and fjord scenery which we can see today, this came much later. Apr 14,  · The Caledonides are a major orogenic belt that stretches from the Arctic, through Scandinavia, East Greenland, Britain and Ireland into the Atlantic coast of.

Paul Smith, Jan Audun Rasmussen, Steve Robertson, A.K. Higgins and A. Graham Leslie The Lower Palaeozoic stratigraphy of the East Greenland Caledonides, from the fjord region of North-East Greenland northwards to Kronprins Christian Land, is reviewed and a number of.

The Scandinavian Caledonides are the vestiges of an ancient, today deeply eroded orogenic belt formed during the Silurian–Devonian continental collision of Baltica and Laurentia, which is referred to as the Scandian phase of the Caledonian orogeny.

The size of the Scandinavian Caledonides at the time of their formation can be compared with the size of the Himalayas. In the East Greenland Caledonides, the Eleonore Bay Basin records deposition of the 14 km-thick, Cryogenian–Ediacaran, Eleonore Bay Supergroup which includes a thick succession of limestones and.

The history of East Greenland cannot be said to have been "neglected, overlooked, ignored" as Apollonio claims (p.
