Underway geophysics are presented for the cruise track from Reykjavik, Iceland to St. John's Newfoundland, along with preliminary results of analysis for the cores drilled at Sites 914-919 on the Greenland Margin, and in the Irminger Basin. Key objectives included study of: the development of volcanism with time; spatial variations in volcanism with distance from the Iceland Hotspot and lithospheric setting; the formation of the Irminger Basin south of the Denmark Strait; the overflow history of the Denmark Strait; and the history of glaciation in Greenland. The introduction, explanatory notes, and information on the underway geophysics, are followed by the site chapters. -S.J.Stone
