The Danish Arctic Station


THE Danish Arctic Station at Godhavn, on the south coast of Disco Island, off the west coast of North Greenland (lat. 69° 14′ N.), is not so well known, at least to British scientific workers, as it deserves to be. It is the only station in the world within the Arctic Circle where it is possible under very favourable conditions and with adequate facilities to carry out experimental scientific investigations.
